BBS031 - New perspectives on practice and Value with Luke Bird

G'day this is Ken Simpson and thanks for tuning into episode 31 of Beyond the Black Stump. 
This week we are going to hear about the experience of a practitioner who has gone exploring beyond the black stump of legacy BC practice. 
Wider horizons provide different perspectives and resilience takes on different dimensions when you immerse yourself in another contributing discipline. This is the continuing journey from BC Newcomer of the Year, to his “difficult second album”.
Lets catch up with Luke Bird.
Thanks to Luke for being open and sharing his experiences of life beyond BC. Sometimes we really don’t see the practices and the discipline clearly until we get outside and look back in.
Do you have an observation, comment or reaction to what we talked about today? You are welcome to discuss these or any of the issues raised in the show at the LinkedIN community.
Here’s a radical idea, instead of the social media communities, why not go to a local forum or chapter meeting and discuss these issues with other practitioners in the flesh!
You may also find it informative to simply have these conversations with other people in your own organisation. Start by opening a dialog between BC and InfoSec - cyber threat is all the rage, it is an overdue connection.
Join me next week for book club with Aaron Gracey.
Until then, I hope your journey takes you to new and fascinating ideas. Stay safe.
