RIK RUSHTON SPEAKER AND COACH, INSIGHT PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
Where are you from originally and where do you call home now? Today, I live in the pristine Dandenong Ranges, just above the hospital I was born in. So whilst I’ve travelled the world, my home has always been in one of Melbourne’s most idyllic settings. Who or what inspires you at the moment? We live in the most opportunistic time in human history, where the ability to gain all the wisdom of the ages and the possibilities for the future are just a click away. I’m inspired by the connection and collaboration with those seeking a better quality of life. What’s the most important project you are working on right now? I’ve just had my first book published, The Power of Connection: How to become a master communicator in your workplace, your headspace and at your place, which was a major project for most of 2017 and the early part of 2018. I am doing multimedia interviews and sessions now it is released around Australasia and online (Amazon, Booktopia.com.au). Trend to watch in the industry or in business? The modern real estate landscape is all about two things: technology and methodology! Agents today need to know how to use technology to drive their methodology of moving clients with added value. Favourite quote or words to live by? “Tune in before you broadcast.” In other words, understand the other person before expecting them to understand you.
