Name: Eddie Hayes Position: Owner, Frame Design studio and art gallery. Skill tips: I pull Glen out of his comfort zone. I’m not a mentor in an official capacity; it’s just a subtle thing. We grew up together. We would build jumps on acreage in Cairns and we’d get on our bikes, old girls’ bikes, which were the precursor to mountain bikes. Where I came from business was just part of what we did, and I would say to Glen, you can make a commercial venture out of this – drop a few words here and there. You’ve got great natural ability. I might not have thought that was encouragement at the time. We’re not in the same industries. I’m in the creative industry; Glen is a true creative. I went to work for corporates from my early 20s, Glen just went on to follow his vision. He didn’t do it for commercial reasons ... but to further his creative flair and to inspire young people. I have never been frightened to change careers. I’ve changed my career four or five times. I don’t have an arts background but I love art. I love many things – I have vast interests. All you have to do is immerse yourself in it and that’s what I say to Glen. Just go for it. Don’t just have fun with it, make a career out of it.
