Change is coming on fast. The Hunter Centre is making real inroads, and I know we're on the right path to impact the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of young leaders. Personally, I'm both excited and terrified by my expanding role as a leader both with the team and in the broader community. To be given this responsibility is a great privilege and honour.

Stewards of the future, in many ways that is what we are. We are preparing some of the brightest and most passionate minds in our university to enter into a world that is growing ever more complex. Our goal is to arm them with the knowledge, skills, and mindset that will help them make a meaningful contribution to the human story. I'm willing to sacrifice for this. This is perhaps the first time in my life I can make that statement. I will do whatever I can to make sure we're successful in the right way, even though it scares the shit out of me because I don't know what that ultimately looks like yet. In taking a community based approach we are opening ourselves up to chaos, to change. But that's how it should be. As an innovation centre we must strive to be innovative, and to be innovative is to adapt to the needs of our community and environment.

This is about so much more than starting new businesses. This is about a life of meaning. This is about consciousness set to a purpose. We're asking: How do you think the world could be better? What impact do you want to have on the world? How are you going to make it happen?

We're going to do this. There's no question about it. Our team is solid, our relationships with our partners and collaborators are developing, and the movement is underway. I am so energized. These are the best days of my life.
