When Digital Live founder Steve Carroll put out the call for real estate agents to ride with him across Thailand in support of orphaned children, he was overwhelmed by the positive response. Last April, 30 riders from all walks of life, with all levels of fitness, enthusiastically embraced the challenge, raising $250,000 in the process.
On 29 April, 30 of the industry's finest traded their pressed shirts for Lycra and their appointment diaries for bicycles to ride 500km across Thailand to provide for the children of Thailand.
Here are some of the highlights.

While you might not be familiar with the work of Peter Bains OAM many of you will clearly remember where you were when you heard about the Bali Bombings in 2002 or the Boxing Day Tsunami in Thailand in 2004. The identification of victims of both of those disasters fell to those who were first on the ground, in many cases Australians including Peter who was one of the team leaders.
In this podcast, Peter speaks with Samantha McLean about motivating teams and leading with innovation especially through times of uncertainty and even crisis, including the role that culture and shared experiences play in both situations.
