Inspiring stuff from Kevin. Proud to work alongside him.
 
“The saddest day of my life? When I got my MS prognosis. No cure, just a slow decline. My biggest challenge? Coming to terms with it and changing my perspective from negative to positive, how best to manage the condition and still achieve my goals and positively contribute. I found courage to move to a wheelchair to have the energy and capability to achieve success. I also found courage to talk about my disability, share my experiences and get over the anxiety. I don’t want to be treated differently, I want to be included.” – Kevin, Executive Director, Strat Dev Sales Ops.

Good luck pal
watching a soapie in Australia (Neighbours) to wheras they have a character that is suppose to have MS but she has no symptoms to which comes across as a total disrespect to what you yourself must be going thru!
I only wish the writers would be honest as to how debilitating what u are going through really is, at least then the funding may increase through the viewing public as the character looks pathetic and unrealistic
Granted I know TV shows are not the catalysts of change but they do influence the market be it audience or political
God bless
And I am sorry that you have this unknown complication in your life
Again
God Bless
You are in my prayers

Why social is great for business

Some of our thoughts on using Yammer at Telstra after reaching 40,000 members ... lots of learnings along the way.

It looks mesmerising enough, but when you take into account the number of calls that fly through an exchange every day, it's quite amazing.
