Little things make the best memories

I had an early flight to Melbourne this morning, which meant and even earlier start from Toowoomba to get to the airport on time.Thankfully, I had a good run with little traffic (not all that surprising for 5am) and arrived with enough time to grab some breakfast in the lounge before boarding.After perusing the offerings, I settled on a bowl of cornflakes.As I took the lid of the jar, and placed the scoop in to load up my plate, I had an immediate flashback to getting breakfast at my grandparents place as a kid. They had this big plastic “tupperware” type bowl with a bright yellow lid, which stored the cornflakes. Each day at breakfast time we’d dig in and load up our plates, and enjoy breakfast, usually with my Grandfather at the table and my Grandmother pottering around the kitchen.It just reminded me that its the simplest things in life that make the greatest memories. My grandfather passed a few years back and my grandmother is having a few health issues these days, but the warmth of that memory, and breakfast shared many years ago gave me a smile, and a super start to the day - and I wanted to share

The world according to Shane - Whether its at home, or at work, never under estimate the impact the smallest things are having on creating the warmest memories.

Shane has provided me with invaluable advice, being that I am in start up phase with my business. His knowledge of business in general, along with his strong understanding of the current trend toward social media and it's influence, have provided me with insights on how to grow my company. I would strongly recommend Shane in a business mentoring role due to his depth knowledge and broad experience, along with his superior story telling ability to make the complex simple.

Shane exhibited with us at the 2012 Safety in Action trade show - Melbourne. I found him to be extremely professional and furthermore his pre employment training services were a hit at the show. We will see Shane return to the safety show Perth (August 7-9). If you're in need of ANY type of pre employment training
I would strongly reccommend OTrain to anyone within HR."
