The Pride of Workmanship Program enables managers 
in our society to help employees achieve the goal of job satisfaction,
 and publicly recognize them for their efforts.
 Participating businesses promote the Pride of Workmanship theme of 
"Do it once- do it well" 
throughout their organization and nominate 
employees worthy of recognition,
 not only within the organization, but the wider community.
 Nominees of the Pride of Workmanship Program
 are presented with a trophy in recognition of their achievements
 The Awardees today were:
 Sue Johnson from the ANZ Bank proposed by Alan Jameson
 Brugh McDonald from LDTotal proposed by Michael Gottschalk

This video left me both amazed and depressed at the same time.
 Roy Beck uses Gumballs in this colorful presentation
 of data from the World Bank
 and U.S. Census Bureau to discuss World Poverty and Immigration.
 With over 3 Billion people in the world classified
 as desperately poor and making less than $2 a day
 it’s no wonder many view the United States
 as the ultimate destination.
 99.9% of the world’s poor will never make it
 to a wealthy country
 so doesn’t it make sense to help them prosper
 where they already live?

Just in case you missed it!!

A Tourism Australia ad inspired by Crocodile Dundee 
has aired to a potential 110 million Super Bowl viewers
 in the US as part of a record $US27m  campaign targeting American travellers. 
 The ad is a continuation of the Dundee
: The Son Of A Legend Returns Home faux trailers 
which have emerged online in recent weeks
 to make it appear a Crocodile Dundee film sequel was in preparation.
