    How overcoming ‘stranger danger’ can be good for business

    Green and white stickers once adorned letterboxes across a community; they represented a Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) ‘safe house’. If your letterbox had one of these stickers you were considered a safe house for children in need on their way home from school. They were a fantastic idea back in the day when kids were walking home from school; should they…

    Call the Professional: Fiona Blayney

    I think everyone has an inner wannabe. I’m not talking about the social wannabe, the one you’d associate with a schoolyard name-calling, but the adult wannabe that exists in us all.

    Tough decisions and difficult conversations: at times like these you need to find your inner superhero and put on your big girl pants, says Fiona Blayney. I’ve never really been a fan of big girl pants. I’ve never found mine a natural fit and as such, if I’m honest, I still find them pretty uncomfortable. I don’t remember the first…

    The Magic of Numbers: Fiona Blayney

    Abracadabra alakazam! Now you see it, now you don’t. Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat! The magic of the magician was embedded into our minds as young children. More recently, I was reminded of this as B1 and B2 (our favourite Bananas in Pyjamas) turned professional magicians and made a friend disappear from their magical box. Just…

    Behind Closed Doors

    Sitting here in a café in Melbourne, grabbing a quick breakfast before I head to training for the day, I am surrounded by people doing the same. Same same but different. My lady friend to my left (yes, you’d be right to imagine me being that person who strikes up a conversation with anyone) has been patiently waiting for her…

    R U OK?

    Don’t just ignore stress, anxiety and depression – a little question to a friend or colleague may start a vital conversation about mental health, says Fiona Blayney. You’ll be getting the impression that a few things have my heightened attention at the moment if you’ve been reading my most recent words. I’m not sure if it has something to do…

    A Trouble Shared: Fiona Blayney

    Why is it so hard to ask for help? A chance encounter with a stranger leads Fiona Blayney to reflect on the wisdom of admitting when things are getting too much. I once received an email that shot me into an instant energy boost for the day. It started with, “Wow! I wish I had hooked up with you a…
