When you get set tasks in life… you have to commit, and you have to take it through…
I was asked last October to speak at the AGideas conference in May 2011… I still remember the day I got the email and rang Eleni and asked if it was spam… haha… I soon found out it wasn’t and that’s when shit got real. She asked me to commit, 1000%… I am always the man for that, but sometimes looking ahead 6 months can be a bit tricky…
So inbetween 2 trips to Hawaii, 2 trips to LA, A house move of the greatest magnitude, Several Photoshoots, 15 Acupuncture treatments, 25 Singing Lessons, a Summer of Amazing Weather, Swimming, Beers and PoolBall… and all the other Mayhem that makes up the Claudio Universe…
It was time to go to Melbourne.
The most amazing week of my professional career as an Artist… The best Committee Crew ever… The most Influential and Talented Creatives… The most Inspiring Speeches to change your world… I laughed, I cried, I got anxiety, I overcame it as quick as it came, Love Love Love in all forms, New Friends and the Best times with Olde.
I cannot thank everyone involved enough, and I don’t think I ever can. You Guys are amazing and you know who you are…
From my 5 Star bathroom at the Westin that’s as big as my House, to the Yellow shirt I was presented with as an Honorary Committee Member, I Love you All. Please enjoy an insiders outside perspective of the Melbourne AGideas 2011.
