Why isn't Africa producing vaccines?

Less than two percent of Africa's population has been vaccinated against Covid-19. Could homegrown vaccines be the solution? If so, why isn't it happening? Is it an issue with patents and intellectual property rights? Is big pharma standing in the way? Or is it simply about money and profits? Things are beginning to happen. Last month a consortium was set up with the aim of opening an mRNA technology transfer hub in South Africa. If they succeed it will be the first regional mRNA vaccine manufacturing production facility in Africa. In this edition of Business Daily, Tamasin Ford hears from Marie-Paule Kieny, the chair of the Governance Board of the Medicines Patent Pool, Toyin Abiodun from the Tony Blair Global Institute for Change, based in Rwanda, and from Petro Terblanche, the Managing Director of Afrigen, the South African biotech company where the first African vaccines will hopefully be produced.

There is a varied mix of celebratory and solemn events coming up, for sure, each deserving of our attention. So, make plan, if you can. AND remember: Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened! No Regerts!   This morning, we buried my sister Noreen. To our listeners, thank you for all if the hugs, well wishes, shared stories and friendship. At her passing, she was surrounded by all of her kids, grandkids, siblings and our parents. She said several times as we all prayed together, that she was at peace, and I believe that she is. We each told of what will always remind her of us, of how we know she is near when we see it, and she smiled as best she could. She could hear our conversation, tho her oxygen assisted breath was labored. “I am fine, I am fine” she said.   We cannot do justice to her heart, her fight, her grace, her faith, her smile, her active support of so many, and her deep love for God.   This is Noreen's Alliteration   I see you in the water, when you wouldn't let me drown I see you in the in the music, as opposed to watching The Crown I see you on the ice, and a fistfight with the male bully I got your glasses safe; the lessons I absorbed, fully   I see you singing at Erieview High, in Annie Get Your Gun impressions I see you in your young Annie, the motions and facial expressions I hear you in my head, with gentle little nudges Cape Cod –trying to teach me to smile, we wept over the judges   The green crash and Roger Fallon, the IA at West 93rd Camogie, The Jerk, the front porch, the sounds I never heard At times we had like-minded magic, at times we had Dairy Queen And of course, we had St. Patrick's Day, laughing over everything, so obnoxiously green   The stories of Mike, the depths of love, the hope running ever eternal Watching you raise your kids, trying not to laugh, while eyes seemed fire infernal Instilling the love, of God & country, and the one across the pond The door always open; the kettle always boiling, of this we are inordinately fond   I see you in the church, and the bishop embracing The love of God rising by day, so many trials head on facing I see you Irish dancing, and thinking, Hell NO Why did you have to leave us, with so many joys still to go?   I bid you farewell; watch over your kids and theirs too There's nothing stronger than a mother's love, for what else can a mother do? Tho you fret, though you worried, you will always be adored Rest in peace, Dear Noni, in the gentle arms of our Lord   ***   Noreen's obituary reads: Noreen O'Brien Beardmore April 28, 1961 - June 13, 2021 Noreen Theresa (O'Brien) Beardmore passed away on Sunday, June 13 at home, surrounded by her family. Her last hours were filled with faith, praying rosaries with friends the night before her passing and with her family the morning of. Noreen fought a vigorous battle with cancer and her family considers the battle won as her whole life is a miracle. Noreen was born in Montreal, Canada to Irish immigrant parents on April 28, 1961 and was the oldest of four children. As a devout Catholic family, the O'Brien's never missed Mass. When they moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1963, their home melded the best of Irish-American culture, including a beloved Irish festival that the whole family participated in running. Noreen graduated from the all-girls Catholic high school St. Joseph's Academy in Cleveland, Ohio in 1979 and was class president. Cleveland served as the highly social platform for her upbringing as she attended dances, organized fundraisers, and navigated the city working various jobs to earn money for school. Noreen attended Duquesne University to study nursing. While at Duquesne, she was awarded the Heinz scholarship for women in global leadership which allowed her to travel to many different countries. When asked during the interview process about which quality defined her most, she said, "I am, above all things, a Catholic." Noreen was truly a very devout woman. She hungered to know the teachings of the faith and to love Jesus more and more. She spent time volunteering at St. Boniface Parish, the Lafayette Catholic Schools System, and to personal prayer and growth in faith. As a nurse, Noreen was the first person in Ohio to be accepted by the Amish community to give immunizations. She was tender with patients and loved her career as pediatric nurse. It is how she met her husband, pediatrician Mike Beardmore. Noreen married Mike in 1990 and they moved to Lafayette, Indiana. Their marriage was one of deep love, hard work, and beautifully shared values. Together they raised 8 children and sent them all through Catholic schools. Noreen and Mike built a family that was centered on humor, music, quality time, and faith. They too ensured that Mass was never missed, and family dinner was central to their lives together. Noreen served as a member of the Governance Board of the Catholic Schools and started a Catholic moms group called "What Would Mary Do?" Unofficially, she was known for seeking out new moms in the parking lot or recognizing when young moms were having a tough time. Noreen loved to connect people with new friends or opportunities that used their gifts. Later in life she worked as the Health & Safety coordinator for the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana. When Noreen was diagnosed with cancer, the family committed fervently to family rosaries and she brought many others into the fold. A weekly zoom rosary was started for friends from around the country and in Ireland to pray together for healing. These friends say it was an inspiring group to be part of, par for the course for a friendship with Noreen. Recently Noreen was given the "He Leads, I Follow" Award from St. Boniface Principal Sr. Lenore and former pastor Fr. Tim Alkire. Noreen was presented a statue of Blessed Mother Maria Theresia Bonzel for the goodness and humanity she has shown to so many people. Noreen wasn't perfect. She wasn't good at cooking eggs until her later years. She frequently told her children that she couldn't hear herself think. And she kept far too many Martha Stewart magazines with very little intention of ever reading them again. But those closest to her say that she always knew the right thing to say. She was everyone's shoulder to cry on. And her children would have rathered had a short amount of time with her as a mother than a lifetime with any other. There was always room at the table with Noreen and her magazine-worthy garden doesn't compare to the blooms of friendships she cultivated and kept around the world. Her family is certain that she will work even harder from Heaven for her friends and family and encouraged everyone to reach out in prayer to Noreen throughout their lives. Noreen is survived by her loving husband, Mike and her eight children: Caitie, Tommy (fiancé Natasha), Brian, John & Casey, Will, Michael, Annie & Caroline. She has two grandchildren: Henry & Peter. She is also survived by her parents; John & Eileen O'Brien of Cleveland, her sisters Cathy (John Lang)of Cincinnati and Patricia (Philip Parente) and brother, John, Jr. of Cleveland. She has 11 nieces and nephews who have always meant so much to her. Proceeding her in death is her infant daughter, Mary Clare, who the family knows greeted her excitedly in Heaven. Although Noreen loved flowers, what would mean most to her would be the Catholic education of more children. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Lafayette Catholic School System.   *** I need time. I can't look back, over the pain. How does life go on, when death quakes our earth?   One timeless way to cope with hurt, is thru music.

Tomorrow is another day, and another chance to write the future, we want to live in. Thank you Consul General Kevin Byrne for joining us!   As always, I end with a bit of the Irish: Nuair a stadann an ceol, stadann an rince Which means: When the music stops, so does the dance. Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us. Don't let it happen to you. Grace us with your music. Now more than ever, wider audiences need to dance to all the beauty around us.   Hope to see you soon. Keep the hugs and prayers coming.   Thank you listening, and for allowing me to share my stories with you. Please share yours, with me. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Welcome.Peter Laurie: Hi.Corinne Butler: Peter you're from Junta. First question I ask everyone is, your business name, how did you come up with that?Peter Laurie: So at the time me and my co-founder, we were looking for words that started with J, for no really good reason. And we found one that we liked, which was Junta. And so the definition was, we were going through word of the day, and the definition is a small group of people seeking to gain power through revolution, which pretty much suited what our mood was at the time.Corinne Butler: So I suppose in business you'd probably see that a little bit, a small group of people who want to make big changes.Peter Laurie: Yeah, that's right. And there's no way to do that in traditional mechanisms so you do that through influence and working with people, as opposed to directing people. Which is where we were at. We are at, yeah.Corinne Butler: So Peter tell me a little bit more about yourself. So who are you and what is your background?Peter Laurie: So my background, I'm an electrical engineer by training, but never worked as one because this thing called the internet turned up. And I burnt my fingers a lot less on the internet. I mean I've been doing software development on and off since I was about 10, but dad put together a computer when I was five. So I'm right at the front of that generation that's always had technology or a computer to play with, so I don't know any different. So I went into electrical engineering after high school and then came out and worked in a few different, what we call startups now, but they were just new ventures back then. So one called Information Dynamics, where we did Ray Whites first website. And then through Y2K, in it's Energex, in their power system. We definitely did fix some things that would have gone explosion. And then went through a few other businesses. I mean I can keep going with the history if you'd like?Corinne Butler: Please, yep.Peter Laurie: So then I was involved in the business that went to crap. We sold it technically, for the technical people out there, we were doing test driven development and we had a model driven architecture at a continuous integration loop. In 2001, was when we were doing it, we solved that technically, it was very much under control and we delivered exactly what we said we were going to deliver. The problem is that the business still went to crap. So I had to work out why. So I went and did an MBA to understand that, and I found out fairly early on in that, that it was actually contract management was the problem. So, not technical. But then I found myself learning whatever I wanted to learn, during this MBA. So I came out of that with strategy, entrepreneurship and multiple economics, which fits my megalomania quite well.Peter Laurie: And I then got involved in starting my own business, after the first six months of that. Because there was a particular bit of insight that I got out of the strategy stuff, which we could talk through later if you wanted to, that unlocked my analysis paralysis. Then in 2011 Steve Baxter said to me "I'm starting a co-working space" so I said shut up and take my money. And then I went down there, took the business, because we didn't need 108 square meters as a two person business. So we went down to the coworking space in Brisbane called Inter City Labs. And then I found myself doing a lot of mentoring and coaching. So I'm the mentor in residence down there now and have been for the last nearly seven and a half years, which is a volunteer position. So I've seen probably several hundred businesses come through and spent a decent amount of time with a few hundred of them.Peter Laurie: And then further to that, I've been doing a lot of entrepreneur in residence roles over the last two years. So two at UQ, two at QUT in the Creative Enterprise and one at River City Labs itself. I do a bunch of mentoring, mainly around startups, and they get me in for the technology to start with and they realize that I actually know a fair bit more than just the technology and we end up working more around strategy and, from the outside it looked like strategic HR.Corinne Butler: So let's talk a little bit more about that mentor in residence. What is that?Peter Laurie: So basically I stick my nose into as many people's businesses that I can. That are in this space. Until they unify against me with pitchforks and torches and chase me out of the room. So they are unified when they do that though, which is an important thing to remember. But basically I jump in and I try and help people out to achieve what they're trying to achieve. And I want them to not fall over in the kiddy pool, to actually get out there and start swimming. So I try and get them to understand the context of what they're doing and how they can go about it and the fact that nobody knows what they should be doing and they need to work it out for themselves.Corinne Butler: So that's huge. Helping people work it out for themselves. How do you do that?Peter Laurie: We do it quite well, thank you.Corinne Butler: How can others do that then?Peter Laurie: So I spent a lot of time teaching people that they need to make their own decisions, rightly or wrongly. So the first thing that I talk about is that nobody knows what they should be doing. Anybody who tells you that they know exactly what you should be doing is lying to themselves, or lying to you. Generally, the first one, there's not many straight up sociopaths out there. The real trick, especially for small businesses and startup, isn't working out where you should be. It's about working out how you get from where you are to where you should be. And the thing to remember is that you're the world expert in where you are and where you should be is part of the problem but the path to get from where you are to where you should be is actually where the art is.Peter Laurie: And then on top of that you've got to be able to stay alive while you're doing that. So it's actually a fairly difficult problem. And the only thing that makes that even harder is the fact that where you should be moves as well. So a lot of people are out there looking for the perfect solution and they think that they can do it once and then they're done. But the fact of the matter is that everything moves and the only thing you can rationally invest in is, is working out which way to go. Doing a little bit of it and then looking where you should go now. So it's really a lot of mindset stuff.Corinne Butler: So is there a difference, do you think, between being a mentor in residence and an entrepreneur in residence? And if so, what is it?Peter Laurie: I mean the reason that it is the mentor in residence and not the entrepreneur in residence is because at the time I didn't feel like I was very much an entrepreneur. And that's a lot more to do with how I felt about what I was doing, than the role itself. And I constructed the role as a title because I needed to differentiate myself from the mentors that were in for one day a year, when I was in there basically 90% of the days for a year doing a very different role, so I needed to differentiate it. The actual entrepreneur in residence role is a little bit more structured in that there's a program that you're normally working towards, be it a three month or a six month program. Whereas the mentor is much more, for the work that I do, much more focused around the way the team is going in the longterm as opposed to hitting the shorter term goals.Corinne Butler: So one of your other roles was a mission lead? What's that?Peter Laurie: First up, not religious. It's not a religious thing. There's an organization called Startup Catalyst, which I've been the youth mission lead for the last four times it's been run. I'm not running it this year. This year is supposed to be about me doing some of my stuff rather than continuing to do other people's stuff. So the youth mission takes 20 18-29 year olds across to San Francisco, Silicon Valley, from across Australia, and blows their mind. The intent behind it is to actually get people to understand that even though the people in San Francisco are held up as something special, that the sky is blue over there, people are the same, and computers and laptops and technology works exactly the same. So the only real difference over there is the perspective that people have and the momentum that they've got.Peter Laurie: We do two main things when we take them over. Well it doesn't really matter. what else we do, we go and do a bit of startups tours. And so we see Google, Twitter, all those sorts of places. But the two main things that we do is we see a good friend of ours, Joel Pobar, who's at Facebook, who grew up in Beenleigh, which is just down the road from Brisbane. And he takes us through what it's like to be a senior manager inside Facebook. It's seriously one of the best experiences that I've been through, and I've done it four times.Peter Laurie: And the other thing we do is we drop the 20 people, and we call them the youths, and we drop the 20 youths into a startup weekend, in the middle of San Francisco. And they have a fairly large imposter syndrome when they start that day. And remember that these people are actually the best we can find out of Australia. So they've got PhDs, or just about to finish PhDs. Bit of machine learning or maths or computing or something like that. And also we have designers and all sorts of people, they're the best we can find, from about 250 to 300 applicants last time. And they still have this massive imposter syndrome, so we drop them into this thing and they dominate that 54 hour business competition.Peter Laurie: Even though they frame themselves as tech, they dominate it because they're smart. And a bit of coaching for us, we tell them what the context is, but they dominate it. But of course they dominate it because we cherry pick from across Australia. And it doesn't really matter. On the last couple of trips I've experimented with telling them that this is what's going to happen to them and they still don't believe it. And then afterwards they are totally transformed, their templates [inaudible 00:12:44] and they come back here, to Australia, wherever they're from, their various regions. And then they have the impact on the ecosystem where they're operating, which is exactly what we're trying to do.Corinne Butler: Wow, that sounds absolutely amazing. So imposter syndrome, we hear that quite a lot lately. What is it?Peter Laurie: So the way I describe imposter syndrome is that it's that feeling that you get when you're sitting in a room that you feel like you shouldn't be there. And at any moment someone's going to walk in and tell you, actually Mr. Laurie, we need to take you out, you shouldn't be here. And everybody has it. There's people that I've spoken to that are currently looking after $100 million funds for investment that don't think that they should be doing that. And the next year that they're going to get $400 million to look after. That's international. A lot of people that I speak to here in the ecosystem locally, or even across Australia, actually have a fair bit of imposter syndrome. And the nice thing is that it's a human trait. When you don't have the ability to get yourself to feeling an impostor syndrome, it's actually when you're a bit of a sociopath. So the example I normally use is Trump, right? So Trump never feels imposter syndrome because he doesn't appear to have that self awareness. So confidence just keeps going up. So I see it as a very normal, very human thing and it never goes away. You just learn to deal with it and acknowledge that it's there.Corinne Butler: That's a great definition. So you touched on a day in the life of a Facebook manager. What's that like?Peter Laurie: Well, that's really Joel's story to tell. But I will tell you that the majority of what he's doing is actually people. In the context of technology. And we actually got him out her last year to do a presentation around how he manages the people that he's working with. The last time I spoke to him he had a span of control of about 12, which is ridiculous. They shouldn't be letting him do that. But he was getting it done and he's a very methodical guy. He came back and talked about how he actually gets people and takes them through and teaches them how to lead. Which is excellent. But again, that's really his story to tell. But from a personal point of view, he's no different than anybody that you'd run into in Brisbane. He's got some more experience, he's got some harder problems that he's taken on. But the lovely thing about it is that I run into people who could be as effective and have as big an impact as Joel is having, every day here.Corinne Butler: Wow. That's such an amazing space to be in. So tell me, what else is happening in your industry?Peter Laurie: Well, there's a lot of different things happening in general. Not the amount of investment that's happening in this sort of, I see my industry, it will be the startup or innovation industry or something like that. The first thing I want to do is I want to qualify this with, I'm a little bit inside a bubble, so I'll talk about it in terms of the way that I think about it. I won't try and translate it outside the bubble, because I don't know if I can properly do that. I will do the stuff that I can. So the first up thing is there's a lot more money turning up into the ecosystem at the moment, be it through the super funds look like they're investing locally, or investing through venture capital firms locally instead of overseas, which is a good sign.Peter Laurie: The local angel networks are starting to get better. They're still not great but it's happening. The state government in Queensland is throwing a lot of money, or investing a lot of money, throwing it makes it sound like it's flippant, but it's not. Deliberately investing a lot of money into the region, to everybody's surprise. A lot of that is stuck. So there's been a lot of things that have been very positive, independent of what you read in the papers. A lot of things that are very positive and, not everything's perfect, but as an ecosystem where you used to that, not being perfect. The worst case isn't so much missing out on what's perfect, but what we do not being perfect, is missing out on the opportunity to be perfect, you've got to take your shot. From a technology point of view, the factors of production, so the ability for us to create something is getting easier and easier.Peter Laurie: So it moves from being a technical problem to being more of a creative problem or an artistic problem. So [inaudible 00:17:22] is a good way to speak about it, is that the biggest problem isn't whether we can build stuff now, it's whether we're actually building the right thing. And I spent a lot of time locally talking about ways to actually build the right thing and discover what it is because, like I was saying before, nobody knows what the right thing is. Up here in Brisbane, in Queensland in general, our universities are producing people that are world class. And then there's no denying that. And that seems to be an infinite resource of people coming out of there. The sad thing about it is that not a lot of people end up in this space where it's fully utilizing the skills that they have when they come out. But that's exactly what Startup Catalyst and the startup ecosystem is trying to open up.Peter Laurie: What else is going on? We're in a bit of a transition now. The startup ecosystem has been going long enough that the people that are purely driven by asset are starting to say that they've had enough and we're looking for the next generation of people to start to come through and make sure it's sustainable. And that's drawing a lot of my attention at the moment. That's what's top of my [inaudible 00:18:39]. Is that what you're after?Corinne Butler: That's great, thank you. So the podcast is called Advisor Adventures. And you've just mentioned that this year is really about you doing your stuff. So what adventures are you up to?Peter Laurie: The way that I operate is interesting. And, as someone who does a lot of thinking about it, I can categorize it quite well. I mean, it presents as something that's lacking a lot of focus. So I'm doing lots and lots of different things. I've had HR people talk to me about it being a portfolio career. So I'm doing lots of different things. And the biggest fear for me isn't so much doing the work, it's only doing that work. So for example, whenever I do dip my toe back into corporate work, I go for five weeks and then all of a sudden it's 18 months. So that's the sort of work that I end up doing. To me at the moment there's some interesting stuff around very early stage investment that I'm starting to think about and may well be able to open up through the crowdsource funding. So filling a gap sort of before Angels, or helping that sort of a phase go quickly, which is really more formalizing some of the investment that I'm doing at the very early stage now.Peter Laurie: Also, as a software developer, I can sit down and have a good idea and build something out, which I find entertaining and fun. I think a lot of other people would consider it work. So I'd probably say I've got about 10 or 15 balls in the air at the moment, which sounds crazy, except to run with the analogy that what I'm focusing on is the ability to juggle. So the balls aren't the things that I'm focusing on. They're opportunities, they're important, I'll push each of them as hard as I can. But the longterm capability that I'm building, the long term skills that I'm building, what I'm constantly trading on, which I'm laser focused on is the ability to juggle. Which has its own set of issues. So at the moment I'm learning to, not so much deal with the fear of missing out or FOMO, it's to embrace what a friend of mine calls the JOMO, which is the joy of missing out, which is a hard transition.Corinne Butler: I think you've got a very valid point there because we do focus a lot on FOMO and I think JOMO is potentially something to even research.Peter Laurie: Yeah, well it's not their term and it's not my term. It's definitely a term that's out there. So by all means have a look.Corinne Butler: So your own personal BHAG so big hairy audacious goal. What's the five-year dream, or 10 year dream?Peter Laurie: I'm a little bit different to a lot of people in that I don't really have a tight five-year or 10 year dream that I'm converging on. Which is described before as the juggling. So my goal isn't to reduce the juggling set down to one ball, it's actually to put more balls in the air. So for me, the goal that loosely describes what I'm doing is to try and get our ecosystem to work properly. One of the attributes when I first started in it, probably closer to 10 years ago, but it's hard. But formally, when the River City Labs opened up, in 2012, is that the ecosystem wasn't flowing. It was just sort of stuttering along. And made a conscious decision to work on that and in that, to make that work. So my five year goal is to have a vibrant, well executing, innovation ecosystem here in Southeast Queensland.Peter Laurie: One of the attributes, because I've got the skills that I have I can go and work wherever I want, and I'd much prefer it to be here than elsewhere. Mainly because I'm here. I don't see a lot of value in heading off elsewhere because it's better there. I mean that's how we never get it here. So I'm trying to get up work here. So I suppose, long story short, five year, 10 year goal is to have a vibrant and virtuous innovation ecosystem here in Brisbane. And as a result of that, across the rest of the state, and then hopefully across the rest of the country as well.Corinne Butler: Sounds great. Now you work with a lot of different businesses and business owners. What would be your top three tips for them?Peter Laurie: Okay, so the first one, like I said before, is that nobody knows what you should be doing. I open with that every time now. Because some people kind of give you a puzzled look and then eventually it turns into this empowering situation. And one of the ways I talked about before is that a lot of people will tell you where you should be, but not a lot of people understand where you're at. And the art's in getting from where you are to where you should be. And then off the back of that, sort of in the same sort of vein, is that to be able to interact with people around that, you need to learn to critically analyze what you're hearing. When you're new to something, you don't have the capability to measure how good someone is, but you can measure how confident they are.Peter Laurie: So you have to learn to listen to everybody and then critically analyze what they're saying to you and then make a decision yourself about what you should be doing, as opposed to blindly following someone. And the main reason behind that is that if you make a decision and it goes wrong, then you learn that you need to make better decisions. If you blindly follow someone and it turns out that they're wrong, your analysis is I need to start and find another person who might know what's going on. So it's really about opening that learning loop, about getting through and doing that.Peter Laurie: So the next one is, I see this one a lot, is that when you're building a business, you're not building products and services. You're building a business that builds products and services. And it's very important to separate yourself out from that. I mean, the goal as a business owner is to become redundant as soon as you can. However people still seem to bring this sort of empire building focus there. You're trying to build something that's sustainable that doesn't require you to be there. You're not trying to construct yourself a job, you're trying to construct yourself a business.Peter Laurie: And even a lot of people that are feeling that through sort of sit back and think about that when I throw that at them. That's a surprising one. I'm just looking down at my notes to see if there was another one that I had. That's probably enough. Actually, the third one is that given that nobody knows what you should be doing, you should be building a business that builds products and services. You're on a constant learning thing. So you need to learn how you learn new things and you need to consciously make that competency stronger. Because that's the only thing that you can rationally invest in given how everything changes so quickly.Corinne Butler: And it's interesting you say that and what you've mentioned there because I agree with you. I see a lot of the time is people don't do themselves out of jobs and they don't invest in themselves. So I think that's great advice. So Peter, what else would you like our audience to know? Any other adventures that you'd like to share?Peter Laurie: Well look, probably the first thing I'd do is, one of my problems that I've got with the innovation ecosystem is that everybody thinks that it's executed by people who are 19 years old and skate to work. When that's not the situation at all. I mean it is who I spend a lot of time working with because that's the only people that turn up. In fact, there's a lot of data suggesting that the most successful entrepreneurs are 45 plus. And the ones that are 18 and do this thing are absolute anomalies and highly unlikely to be successful. And I find a lot of people ruling out this is an option because they think they're not the right person to do it. So I treat this as an invitation to go down and get involved with your innovation ecosystem.Peter Laurie: So there'll be called startup spaces or coworking spaces. There'll be things like startup weekends and events and meet up groups. And get down there with your eyes open and critically analyzing everything, but get involved. You'll find that you are actually sitting on a whole bunch more skills than you think. And if I could make you do one thing, it'd be try and go out and do a startup weekend. It's by no means a comfortable experience, but it's an incredibly solid way to learn what you need to know to be able to execute in this newer, faster moving environment.Corinne Butler: I think that's great advice. I think we should all go and do a startup weekend.Peter Laurie: Yeah.Corinne Butler: So Peter Laurie from Junta. Thank you so much for joining us today on Advisor Adventures.Peter Laurie: You're welcome. Thank you very much for having me.
