We invaded Bali for our Annual pilgrimage to attend the Raine & Horne Darwin Awesome Conference once more in October.IMG_3307

This event is open only to those amongst our team who qualify for their Golden Ticket which is bought about by achieving your Targets which are set above and beyond their every day KPI’s.


So everyone who qualifies for this ticket has well and truly deserved their opportunity to be part of the Awesome Conference 2015 as they have gone above and beyond.

That said…..on with the show!

Which commenced with our Special Guest Speakers, Mark Wilton (Journalist) and Amy Day (Marketing Specialist) who entertained the team with some great stories about their industry.

Then it was a quick 2 hour break before attending the Gala Dinner and rocking on to the band. There was a small party who continued on to the wee hours of the morning however that was just so that Tony Abbott could experience some of the nightlife with his body guards (or so the drunk bloke thought at 2am in the morning).

Allegedly there was a moonlight dip in Kuta Beach at about 3am which probably explained why there were a few sore heads the next morning for the Amazing Race.


Which commenced as we all piled aboard a fleet of restored VW Combi’s which were fitted out as limousines…..complete with amazing sound systems.

These ferried our teams around the island to some great destinations including the smelly Jimbaran Fish Markets where some of last nights cocktails almost made a reappearance.

And finished by setting us down at the beach temple for a blessing followed by some relaxing lunch time fare. Naturally the winners were Team Orange however because I was on the team and it wouldn’t be good for me to win as the GM I told the organiser to give it to Team Yellow as they tried hard?Bali 2015 002Bali 2015 008IMG_8402IMG_8384

Then a day of Swimming, Waterslides, Massages and R&R before boarding that great 3am flight home….Some of us made it to work on Tuesday….in body.
