I have always believed Knowledge is for sharing. It is as if the brain is like the teacup in the Zen proverb that needs to be emptied before a fresh cup is poured. So hopefully without entirely emptying my brain these podcasts are an attempt at keeping it fresh by revisiting things I thought I knew and asking questions of those who know better and more. Like everything we do here we see this as a joint venture with you. Just as our products have been developed as solutions to your problems and needs so can these podcasts. Press play below and let us know your ideas to be in the running for free stuff!

Angela Lau - ADF Queen

Angela Lau - ADF Queen

Angela Lau Show Notes

This episode introduces Angela Lau the anointed queen of Australian Dance Festivals.

A force of nature is an overused and consequently devalued term. Another descriptive Tiger Mum is often seen as derogatory. Angela is in many ways both these things , and came from these things ,but in a totally good way. Today we investigate who she is and why she is. discover how a broken heart led to the world of Dance and ultimately The Australian Dance Festival

Along the way we discuss why Angela chose not to be an accountant (hard Choice there Angela!) What led her to starting the Australian Dance Festival, it’s small beginnings to now attracting 1,000s of participants daily. The energy there has to be felt to be believed and even for that alone Angela we salute you. We will also discuss why sci fi is part of innovation, people , books and mentors that have been important and some of the tools including tech savvy interns that have made an impact.

I hope to revisit this conversation after the 15th of September when ADF 2018 takes place at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre in Homebush.

In the meantime contrary to thoughts you may have later, and rather sadly, this episode is not sponsored by Google docs.
