I’ve been thinking about this for a bit of time especially after the success of the US one which i have posted before (If you don’t know what I’m speaking about have a look at this post here from the Vegas GIS the 2nd ever Tweetup ) It was a great way to meet people that i would not normally of met if it wasn’t for twitter and made some long term friendship because of it. As I posted last night thank to @itweetturf @GCI_Magaine @TurfRepublic for the inspiration

After a discussion with Dean Hardman from the Australian Golf Course on the conference he said he would like to meet all the people who are on twitter and facebook in person.

The Australian Turfgrass Conference is only 3 weeks away . Hard to believe isn’t it. A few things I want to point out which I hope you can attend or use for the conference.

There are plenty of talks on during the week and some great speakers but one not to be missed is myself (Yes totting my own horn here)

Tuesday 21st June 3.20pm-4pm I am proud to be doing a session on
“Building Your Profile Using Social Media”

What i aim to do is

  • Give you the tools available within social media to raise your profile

  • How to use those tools and

  • Create your own personal brand and make this an asset.

As well as making it fun along the way I hope to give everyone something to take home..

2014 Work smarter




A blue stop sign from US last year.

I’ve chosen this heading to kick off 2014 as we are all busy these days and do work alot. My thinking is lets our ask ourselves to work smarter by working out on doing things better. This has been a continual theme with discussions on social media in turf world wide.

From our point of view I will bring you updates on new innovative products including our continuing work on Monstar which many of you have used and our new surfactant Filmstar. As well as new products we i will have thoughts and ideas how to help better manage your turf with varying climatic conditions across the country.

What’s on the agenda this year? There is alot happening this year here is a small sample of what is on offer.
