After many early mornings, fresh ideas and tons of energy it’s time for us to give a heartfelt farewell to our awesome team mate, the one and only Gabby Lord

Gabby is off on her first big adventure around the world, heading to the CreativeMornings Organiser Summit in NYC and eventually touching ground in Berlin, undoubtably sharing a bier or zwei with Maggie Tang – another beloved CreativeMornings/Sydney adventurer. 

Whilst for the rest of us in Sydney we’re saddened to see her go, the unstoppable force of Glord is…well unstoppable and it’s unsurprising that we can’t keep her to ourselves any longer. 

Look out world, here she comes!

Team CM/S.

Meet Jodie Fox. Jodie is the Director of Fashion and Founder of Shoes of Prey. Since its launch in 2009, customers have used Shoes of Prey to design tens of millions of custom shoes (literally!). From a background in advertising and law, Jodie now applies her communication savvy and sense of style to foster a world-class tech business that allows women to design their own perfect pair of shoes. Jodie spoke at September’s CM talk back in 2012. We checked in with her to see what she’s been up to since then - and not surprisingly, there’s been a lot going on!

Name: Jodie Fox

Nickname: J Fox

What have you been up to since you spoke at CM? Quite a bit! Probably the biggest piece of news is that we opened a store in at David Jones on Elizabeth Street in January 2013, and in November 2013 in Paris it was named the worlds best store design <1,200sqm for 2013, up against Karl Lagerfeld’s concept store in Paris and Puma for their flagship store in Osaka. 

What did you want to be when you grew up? An actress, a diplomat or a global business woman. I feel like what I do covers all three. 

What’s the single best piece of advice anyone has ever given you? They put rubbers on pencils for a reason. It makes me remember that I’m learning when I’m making mistakes. But it also makes me nostalgic as I realise it’s not going to be relevant for the generations to come. 

Weekend ritual: Sleeping in, lots of relaxed meals and chatter with good friends, yoga, farmers markets, cooking, hanging out with my kitten, reading, sketching and binge watching Netflix TV series. I like to over plan. 

The technology or tool you couldn’t live without: My iPhone

Where do you do your best thinking? Wherever I create the environment. Even when I was studying in high school, lighting a candle gave me that environment I needed to think.
