At the Transit of Venus forum last week inspired by Sir Paul Callaghan, we asked David Skilling, Director of Landfall Strategy Group, four questions: What is your current focus? What makes the world lumpy? Why over-invest in external relationships? What makes the Transit of Venus important?

David is the perfect example of the talent we want to keep, and in this video clip he shows that because of the tyranny of distance (he is currently based in Singapore), he is able to deliver a much needed global perspective for New Zealanders to consider, digest, and embrace.

You can follow David on Twitter, and sign up for the email distribution list or subscribe to the Facebook page by following the links at

This is also our 100th video on our YouTube channel! Thank you to all the interesting and brilliant people we have interviewed over the years.
