We know that AOD use often occurs together with mental health concerns, as both a contributing factor and a coping mechanism. It's always good to see discussion of impacts that extends beyond those directly affected and considers the broader social costs. We need to realise that we're all affected.

In our view, every CEO should be continually asking these five questions to evaluate when and how to maintain or accelerate their growth trajectory:

  • How much growth do we need, and how quickly do we need it?

  • How secure are we in our core markets?
  • What opportunities do we have to expand our current businesses and to generate more cash to invest in growth?
  • What new opportunities do we see that might present us with a great next act, and when do we move?
