Melbourne Cup Predictions

Monday 5 November 2007

Futurists often get asked things like 'Okay then - who's going to win the 'flag' this year'. In Melbourne Cup time most of my friends ring me asking for a hot tip. Given my consistent poor form at selecting a winner, why they would ask me is anyone's guess (unless they are working out who NOT to back!) so this year I've put a little more futurist's thought into it and here's what I've come up with: The 'signals' (coincidences) I've been picking up tell me that The Fuzz, Blue Monday and Purple Moon would be a trifecta bet were I to have one. My 'lucky numbers' of 9 & 11 give me Zipping and Master O'Reilly and also based on the barrier draw Princess Coup. The Fuzz is included twice because it's out of barrier 11. Enjoy the day. If you do have a punt, keep it sensible and while you're there, say 'Hi' to Kenny for me :-)

Developing a Personal Strategic Plan - Skills for a Future Career
Thursday 27 October 2016
Whilst we know 'Getting Your Future Right' is a book that helps you do that, there's other ways that can be helpful for planning your future. In the clip I talk to secondary school kids about a framework I devised to help them considered the kind of capabilities they will need in the future careers and life. I've called it a C.A.P.A.B.L.E Future
