So here we go again, eh!
Yep … off to spout my nonsense and basically try and pick a few fights.
The thing is, given Aussies are not the best at taking constructive criticism [ahem] I know they’re going to put up a much better fight than most … but hey, I’m married to one of their peeps, so they’ve already got their own back because they know she’ll give me more misery than I could ever give them.
[That is a joke Jill. Honest]
I’d put the preso on here, but as I’m the cut & paste master, you know you’ve already seen pretty much all of it before.
Saying that, here is a massively cut down version of it* …
… plus the few ‘Aussie teasing’ slides …
In typical style, the preso is more for me to talk around than to let people understand what I’m trying to say, but rest assured, it’s all going to go down like a bucket of sick … though I’m not sure if that’s because they might not have a sense of humour or because I’ll be naming and shaming Tourism Australia’s approach to marketing, the Gruen Transfer television show and the recently launched National Australia Bank campaign which bangs on about how they really give a shit about their customers but that’s all they do, talk. Idiots.
In all seriousness, as much as I give Australia shit, I love pretty much everything about the place and the reality is the majority of my mischievous little rants could be aimed at pretty much any country in the World … so I do hope the audience take my presentation in the spirit it’s meant, but if they don’t, we won the ashes again so I won’t really care. Ha.
If you read this blog and are at the conference, please say hi. But if you’re carrying a knife, please don’t.
[Showing my Italian roots there eh? Sorry Mum]
* I have no idea what’s wrong with slide #12 , but it should have said this:
Not really worth the wait was it? Like most things I end up doing eh!
