One foot on the ground
Well .. I'm working hard and Miranda's taking a holiday :)
I've just finished week two of my new role. It is absolutely fascinating, unfortunately I am bound under a variety of confidentiality clauses which make it difficult to write much about what I am actually doing. But here are the basics .. (1) Australia is waking up fast to the huge $$ multi-billion opportunity of the Internet of Things (2) KPMG has taken a very strong lead in this market over all the other major consultancies and has recruited an international team with extraordinary expertise across a variety of domains including Smart Cities and Agritech (3) Our tools include financial modelling (eg to help raise funds for infrastructure investment), technology enablement, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and much more. (4) I have a role that spans a number of industries from banking and insurance to government, telcos and farmers. I am also developing some key local strategic alliances (Hypercat members) that will deliver some totally unique offerings (5) Our secret sauce involves mixing *******, ******* and ****** to deliver lasting results. Below is a view from my office window. I'm loving it.
Meanwhile Miranda has been enjoying the Australian sun with her sister Fiona. This week they headed South to Jervis Bay on the South coast of New South Wales, where Dan & Fiona have a beach house in paradise. Jervis Bay is said to possess the whitest sand in the world, Below are some of the pictures they took during their trip. How the other half lives :)
