Question Dys with Pilot at Amanda's Adventures

It's always so wonderful to talk to a fellow dyslexic and tonight is no exception. In this free Q & A session, I speaks with Amanda Harrison who is an experienced pilot with a demonstrated history of working in the aviation industry. Skilled in Flight Planning, Air Charter, Aviation, Adventure Pilot and live life to full.
In May 2019, Amanda paid tribute to Amy Johnson, a true aviation hero, by following in her footsteps and flying solo from London, UK to Darwin, Australia in just 19 days in my vintage Tiger Moth. It was her first major adventure since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 which included treatment, surgeries and most importantly healing in 2018.

Question Dys with Ashton Bishop

from Step Change

In this Question Dys episode Shae speaks with the CEO Ashton Bishop from Step Change. Ashton is Australia’s Predatory Marketer — an expert in pinpointing how brands can grow by outsmarting their competitors. Don’t just take our word for it, you can watch him in action here and learn how to use Predatory Marketing in your business. However, his path was a somewhat unusual one. After graduating with a commerce/law degree, he turned his hand to street performing, TV presenting, stand-up comedy, film directing, and even literally ran away with the circus. Fortunately, Ashton eventually found his niche in marketing, where he has spent the last 14 years working internationally on some of the world’s biggest brands. He’s a business owner, serial entrepreneur, challenging, sometimes even controversial, but always focused on what gets results. He’s run million-dollar campaigns for billion-dollar brands, created Australia’s first mobile app, won film awards, guest lectured at leading universities, and has won Speaker of the Year for Australia’s number one CEO network on multiple occasions.
