Hawke’s Bay pow wow

Got summoned with a week’s notice to head up to Rod’s place in Hawke’s Bay with a couple of the guys from our marketing team to meet with Andy, our Advisor to the Board who was visiting from the States. We met him a couple of times while in New York, and being the ex CEO of dell.com he’s rather famous in tech circles and when put together with our CEO and marketing guys, they spoke a whole other language of marketing jargon that I struggled to keep up with at times.

However, I was chuffed to be invited and really enjoyed the experience of a business retreat to the boss’s beach house. Had to drive a giant Ford Falcon, automatic, to get up and back, rather a monster to drive for my first time out behind the wheel in 5 months!

Rod & Andy served up a great meal of beef, roast vegetables & salad.


Andy & I rode on the back of Rod’s quad bike to the shop – via the beach!

219 - 9 August 2010

We spent the morning drinking coffee (from a machine like ours), eating Rod’s banana choc chip muffins and talking strategy.
