With Melbourne now in another lock down and working remotely continuing for the foreseeable future, we’re all having to get more comfortable and creative with technology.  At the same time that we’re feeling like we can’t do one more Zoom call, we’re being asked to embrace it even further as we grap...

A few years ago, I wasn’t feeling healthy. I was a senior executive working long hours, on and off planes every week, carrying extra kilos and completely lacking in energy and enthusiasm. I knew something needed to change and I didn’t want to wait for a crisis before I took action. So after listenin...
