What to learn from the Aussie Olympic team?

It pains me to say this, but at the time of writing it looks as if Great Britain will beat their long time foes and my nation, Australia in the medal race at the Beijing Olympics. As a result, I’m looking for excuses because like any Aussie I don’t like being beaten by the Brits! And in my quest to delve deeper into this unfathomable scenario, I did discover something which seems to be at the root of the Australian’s problems: complacency.

The power of learning

When I think about attending conferences, I think of overly air conditioned rooms, really bad coffee and processed meat sandwiches. I'm one of those people who always ducks down the street during the breaks for a hearty meal. But I love them (conferences, not the sandwiches) because I thrive on learning new stuff and meeting interesting people.

What's different over there?

I'm asked this almost daily. As an Aussie who has fundraised in Australia, the UK and now North America, I feel I can answer this question reasonably well. So grab a coffee, arm yourself with pencil and notepad and prepare for some real gems, the answers to all your fundraising prayers from across the pond, the 'next big thing' that will revolutionize your organization.
