“That equates to 1 vehicle fire for every 20 million miles driven, compared to 1 fire in over 100 million miles for Tesla. This means you are 5 times more likely to experience a fire in a conventional gasoline car than a Tesla!”

NZ Young Professionals Podcast 18: Fraser McConnell – Quitting the PwC corporate life to live in Wanaka while saving native NZ birds

NZ Young Professionals Podcast 18: Fraser McConnell – Quitting the PwC corporate life to live in Wanaka while saving native NZ birds

Most Uni students dream of working at one of the big four accounting firms – PwC, Deloitte, EY and KPMG. Fraser McConnell is definitely not “most uni students”. Having joined Pricewaterhouse Coopers in the management consulting team – arguably one of the more sought-after divisions – he left after a year to see whether he could live in Wanaka all while saving New Zealand’s native birds. Over 25 million native NZ birds are killed every year by pests.

Through his social entries, Squawk Squad, Kiwis (the people not the birds) can crowdfund pest-traps – pitching in to save the birds we see every day on the back of our dollar bills. In this episode Fraser talks to podcast host, Ed McKnight about everything from life in PwC, right through to quitting and starting this social venture, and his other venture, Upstream Daily.

But, after just 10 minutes with futurist and Mind Lab founder, Frances Valentine you get a sense of how fast the world is now spinning. Windows that act as solar panels, homes that can be built in just a few days, insects becoming standard parts of the Western diet.

These changes aren’t coming. They’re already here.  In this episode with podcast host, Ed McKnight, Frances speaks about how the world is changing, and why NZ’s young professionals aren’t ready or prepared for what’s to come.

Como Cuisine: Dempsey Hill & Latteria Bar: Emerald Hill: Singapore – The Fearless Kitchen 69

Singapore is a wonderful melting pot of offerings of cuisine from all over the world.  From air-conditioned malls filled with cafes, restaurants, pasta bars and dumpling houses to the side streets filled with character houses brimming with foodie options. Dempsey Hill is a former barracks which houses fashion, food and furniture.  Ambling from one spot to the next provides you with a day of temptations and none more than the Como enterprise with it’s well rounded options within one brand.

This interview with the expat Chef and bartender unravels a little of the scene in Singapore which is to be explored on a visit.  Then we move onto the fascinating story of the Latteria Bar in Emerald Hill where mozzarella is the key signature of the restaurant.  My interview with the Owner of this mozzarella bar dives straight into the menu choices and the diverse range of Italian handmade cheeses on offer.  Warning – this podcast is not designed to be heard when you are hungry!
