Wishing all my family, friends and colleagues in Australia and overseas, a Happy Chinese New Year.
May the Year of the Goat bring you happiness, good health and prosperity in 2015.
This year, the Chinese New Year starts on 19 February 2015 and ends on 5 March 2015. It is traditional for the festivities to start prior, during and after this period. The Chinese New Year offically lasts for 15 days.
This year, the Chinese New Year festivities and celebratory activities are very vibrant and happening everyday around the nation during this season. It is fantastic to see a greater awareness of Chinese culture and have many nationalities join in the celebration. The Chinese New Year season also offers many business opportunities, especially in tourism, retail, restaurants, entertainment and gifting.
In the Goat year 2015, I am rising to the challenge of sleeping out again rough for one night on 18 June in Sydney with hundreds of other business leaders and CEOs at the Vinnies CEO Sleepout charity event.
1000 CEOs and business leaders aim to raise $10 Million for homeless services in 2015.
I pleadged to raise $10,000 so will be asking my family, friends and colleagues to once again suport my efforts.
Please go online to donate against my profile towards my efforts to raise $10,000 this year.
