Alan-Jones-Formula-1-for-business-book-launch-1-150

On a weekday night in Perth, the business community gathered at the Hyatt Regency in Perth for a special function, with Alan Jones Formula 1 racing driver making a guest appearance to launch the book Formula 1 for Business. The book is co-authored by entrepreneurs Simon Frayne and Daniel O’Connor, both of whom are well known to the Perth business community.

You may ask what does Formula 1 driving have in common with business success? Quite a lot it turns out, as we heard Alan share his stories about his start in the racing driving community. Armed with only 50 quid in his pocket, and a burning ambition to make his mark, he headed off to the UK to pursue his dream of becoming the best Formula 1 driver. And that he did, with a momentous string of wins in the Formula 1 World Championships that we all know and admire him for.

Alan Jones’ busy schedule in Perth also included a star appearance at a charity lunch to raise funds for the Kalparrin – A Centre for Families of Children with Special Needs, located at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

Perth-Start-Up-Weekend-4-150 

It's late Friday afternoon in Perth, and while the din of traffic quietens in the city as office workers head home for the weekend, things are just getting started at 45 St Georges Terrace. The best brains around town are gathered together at the co workspace SpaceCubed to gear up for the Perth Start up Weekend.

The Perth Start Up Weekend is one of the key events of the year where budding entrepreneurs gather together to begin the process of transforming their ideas into reality. There is a combination of excitement and a buzz of nervous energy in the air as participants mingle and chat. Some have come to contribute their development skills, some to design and others to add their marketing mojo.

Ironically, once upon a time, 45 St Georges Terrace was home to the Reserve Bank. Its vaults are one sign of its former life, and since any one of these web or app ideas at the Start Up Weekend could well be the next online success, perhaps those old vaults will come in handy after all!
