How is Australia Post in a growth market and losing money?

How is Australia Post in a growth market and losing money?

If one is to take a look at Australia Post on face value it would seem as though it has made a successful transition from Government postal service to a modern , thriving logistics company riding the e-commerce delivery wave, however the recent announcement of a predicted $500m loss and 1,900 job cuts in the midst of an industry boom begs the question why? Australia Post is the longest running Australian government department with origins dating back to 1809 and today with over $6.3 Billion Read More...

RedBalloon reaches their BHAG

RedBalloon reaches their BHAG

Yesterday marked a major milestone for Naomi Simson and the team at RedBalloon, an Australian gift experience provider. In 2004 Naomi and her team set a Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) to provide a gifting experience for 10% of all Australians within 10 years – 2 million gift experiences. At the time, it probably scared her and seemed perhaps impossible to the team. And that’s the key to a good BHAG. It’s meant to make people ask could we really achieve that or are we Read More...
