Gold Coast wrap

Gold coast live

Thanks to everyone who came to see me and others speak at Gold Coast this week.

Another great conference, and sincerely hope to see you all there again next year. 

You can't help but notice the phenomenal numbers of Chinese tourists in Queensland these days.

If you're a glass less than half full person, you might say that this echoes the relatively short-lived Japanese investment boom of the 1980s, but it feels more permanent than that (they probably said that in the 1980s too, to be fair).

People say that the Japanese investment didn't leave a legacy - not true, there are some great golf courses, after all!

On that note, special mention to David Sue for cleaning up on the Stableford points competition. 


Stay tuned for details of my next live speaking event later in the year.
