Innovation is the force that drives human progress. It has taken us out of the cave and into houses, cars and aeroplanes. Innovation has created Wi-Fi, smartphones, beach towels and whatever you are reading this on. The ever increasing pace of change in the world is exciting, but also scary, because it means that almost everything that you do now in your business, no matter how brilliant, cutting edge and state of the art, is soon going to be out-dated. 2012's world's best practice isn't going to cut it in 2020, just as world's best practice in 2004 wouldn't cut…
This Month we're giving away copies of all the Books We Love to anyone who asks.... Lots and lots of books! All you need to do is to pop over to our Facebook page and write on our wall asking for the book you'd like from the list below! If you share with your friends, they can ask for copies too!
We've asked around for recommendations for some of the newest book releases to hit stores this month. Here's our top picks of the Books We Love:

Sharmila is the negotiation queen and has managed to secure names that I didn't believe we could get. 10 out of 10 with every speaker booked - now I expect nothing less!

Watch our speakers provide incredible insights when you spend 5 Minutes with O!

Sharmila, I wanted to personally thank you for your guidance and recommendations this year in helping us choose our keynote speakers. It is great to work with a business partner who really gets what we are after and understands what we do – Thank you!

I would just like to say that working with you (Nadia) and Sharm is a delight. You are both so easy to work with, clear in your follow up and fair in your dealings. It is very refreshing.

My experience has been highlighted by the privilege of working with Sharmila Nahna over the last 6 years. She has provided invaluable advice, booked incredible speakers and has been a great sounding board for event concepts.

Thank you for all your help, negotiations, and making the experience enjoyable and hassle-free!

A massive thank you to you both for all your assistance from selecting to co-ordinating the speakers for our annual ProLoan conference. Feedback was that this year’s speakers where the best they had EVER heard at ANY event. So this is pretty amazing, because they do go to a lot of sessions like these.

Again this year you and your team have been fantastic and extremely helpful.  In regards to you Sharm, you have been an absolute star and phenomenal help with our speakers and presenters, a great communicator, wealth of knowledge and so prompt with responding and looking at ways to cater to our needs.

I would recommend, without hesitation, the services of Jane Rowland Smith and Ovations. Jane answered a last minute call to arrange a guest speaker for our principals. Nothing was too much effort, all was arranged within hours, and went very smoothly. The guest speaker was exactly what we required and our brief was followed. Thank you Jane and the team at Ovations.

Executive Director of Schools Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta

All aspects of the process has always gone seamlessly with Ovations and we will continue to seek your assistance for the awards in the coming years.

Thank you again, your help has meant that our Awards are very professional and extremely well received by our members and guests.

Executive Assistant BSCAA NSW Division

Jane, I personally want to thank you for all of your support, advice, patience and all round kindness that you have given me over the last 3 or so years.  This event would not have been as successful without the valuable MC’s you have recommended and the support you provided me when it all just seemed too hard
