The competitive nature of such an event where numerous competitors strive for the crowning of the elusive title. Surely technique is the key to meet the judges expectations, knowledge and presentation is a must. With such skills 'under your belt' it is the delivery, engaging your personality with confidence and jumping outside the 'comfort zone' taking a risk, trusting oneself with judgement at hand was the key to victory. Not only did they win the judges over, but the audience were chanting their number all the way to first place!
Engaging with the audience, clarity, meeting the needs of the viewers, articulation, organization, clear communication and presentation. Just to name a few that made this program a success. With numerous successful seasons presenting dance culture, dance history, dance demonstration and performances, preparation with the target audience in mind was the key. This program went on to win the 2009 Antenna Awards for Outstanding CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) Program.

Throughout his Academic years as a nutrition consultant, Emilio operated his own practice and through this, was able to experience moments that brought back reality of life and the people in it.
The pressure, expectations, competitive nature, decision making and commitment, just to name a few for not just the players, but support crew, medical staff, coaches, volunteers, cheer squad members, etc are continually high. It is certainly important to have a well prepared, organized and supportive crew on an ongoing basis to keep a successful business. As a Nutrition Consultant watching the pressure put on these upcoming players coming through the ranks, established seniour players striving to keep their positions and the support crew in place to help their development was wonderful to be a part of and experience. It is no wonder the Club has experienced the success it has.
One of the most emotionally challenging times which ended up giving an experience that will only bring perseverance in believing in who you are. The number of patients over the years that would move Emilio with their final words. Its a moment that you do not wish to experience too often, yet sometimes in reality you are faced with decisions that will be final. Emilio was taken back and amazed to witness so many of those on their last days of life, that they would express with such clarity, focus, and determination...'if i had my time again, I would...'
Royal Melbourne Hospital & Bronte Foundation. It is a world of disarray for so many experiencing thoughts about self image, judgement, expectations, self sabotage, morale, anticipation, fear, acceptance, communication, negotiation, trust. Working with so many experiencing such thoughts is a journey that requires patience, understanding, guidance, listening, boundaries, negotiation and acceptance to just name a few. A rewarding experience to have worked with such individuals that are able to find their way through the maze and watch them develop the skills to be able see them face obstacles and move through them.
Meeting a budget, appointments, rewards, incentives, planning, organisation, time management, motivation, knowledge. These maybe skills required to be able to manage the tasks of such a position. As well as the skills, the health of the individual requires close attention to be able to succeed. Sometimes so much focus is placed on whats put to us to accomplish in a working environment, when we need just as much emphasis placed on ourselves in preparing for such tasks to avoid 'burn out'. Is time for self nurturing, prioritising time for ourselves, charging the batteries an ongoing option for optimal performance? Are we too set in the way we accept and do our daily chores, is there room for negotiation or is this pushing too much outside our 'comfort zones' and our own boundaries of normality, expectations, fear and security.
