The Do Lectures Australia

Started up the Do Lectures in Australia. The Guardian UK called it a cross between TED, Burning Man and Where the Wild Things Are. It’s a mysterious 3-day dinner party for 120 high performers, largely spread by word of mouth. 20 international and local speakers bust out the talk of their life. They’re filmed and published online here. Everyone seems to be charmed by it. Me too.

Payne’s Hut

Attracting people to paradise.

As seen from space

People can view their location from space, thanks to our combination of Commander Hadfield‘s photos from the International Space Station & Foursquare.


Created a magnificent weekend in the sunshine, full of mystery, bushwalks, river swimming, and treats. People didn’t want to go home.

Digital Treasure Hunts

Teams learning digital (blogging, twitter, foursquare, youtube,..). 100+ people running through Melbourne’s CBD solving clues. Fun + good humour + learning.

Blink Tank

Hosted 25 entrepreneurs and senior leaders in the High Plains (North East Victoria, Australia). Facilitated a mischievous program of surprise and delight. Great business & personal outcomes for people.
