I leave today for Bryn Mawr, an imposing looking college in Pennsylvania. I have been invited to my company's "corporate bootcamp" for a week, to get mentally and physically fit. Really, it's like going back to college but with a full syllabus every day. We sleep in dorms, get woken at 6am for compulsory exercise every morning, go to study hall after dinner and fill our days with negotiation skills, marketing case studies and decision making lectures. I'm excited - and scared. When was the last time you shared a bathroom with a senior male executive?!
I am an Aussie female who 4 years ago swapped the sand of Bondi Beach for the concrete metropolis called New York. I was lucky enough to be transferred over with work and now have the privilege of working uptown and living downtown. The best of both worlds! This blog is just a musing on the wonderful things this city has to offer and other related observations, from an Australian's point of view.
