"That size epidemic didn't kill anywhere near as many people as as did but it was an opportunity for to learn the lessons and putting a response that meant that. Were well prepared for next time so so. This is the case that taiwan the size came through the appropriate listens. They put the infrastructure that could scale up really quickly in place for the next and dynamic and absolutely ready to go and root the benefits from that and it sounds like they lived pretty much like we did for quite a long while in taiwan In that lovely interregnum we had before the delta variant appeared with pretty much had extinguished it from the society for awhile and we have been able to go about the businesses though as though. Wasn't there at all yet. Taiwan was extremely successful in controlling and containing the virus right from the outset. They had fantastic early intelligence by what they're observing across mainland china on bearing in mind that mainland china is extremely close to taiwan which was the center of the pandemic but they may taiwan managed to Respond quickly and keep the virus at by basically go on living fairly carefree life throughout march of twenty twenty and the death toll is amongst the lowest in the world that approach. I think points to kayla's in which is learning the lessons of crises to ensure that we put in place measures that set us up for success next time around which is why i think Richard one of the critical things that we catalog and learn the lessons of australia that we do not forget time and time again countries move onto fast they forget about it and i don't learn the lessons and so one of the recommendations that i might is that we should have a royal commission into the pandemic not to point the finger at anyone who did anything wrong with that might come out but i think it's really critical that we learn the lessons and that we find recommendations to governments in the governments are able to enact upon them..

Coronavirus in Melbourne: Victoria's case number rollercoaster
"I'm going to start by talking about numbers in. Victoria again. But before you run away because we talk about this, every day I just want to talk about how much of a roller coaster it as we went from the three hundreds to the seven hundreds in die again, how do we make sense of the kind of fluctuations it was saying out of Eke? Well, there's one explanation for part of them, which is that you might get a run of a batch of tests that come through in one hit. which were a backlog served? Let's say it takes up to three days to get the results. You may just have a backlog. But it's hard to imagine that you've gone to a backlog of something four hundred or so from yesterday, it's. Thirty, it's more like seven hundred, absolutely new cases you. have been reclassified. So you can get a surge like that. But this is you know it's almost double. In fact, it's more than double what it was yesterday. So it's hard to explain by suddenly several batches of tests coming through, but that's always possible. What you should look at the rolling average. So each day you update the rolling average for seven or fourteen days, and when you look at the graph of that, it's going up. So it's not. It's not stabilized yet. It's still going up. At, least according to the evidence that we've got and I think one of the problems Victoria is that it looks transparent, but it's not. The issue here is, do they really know what's going on and I'm not? I'm not alleging incompetence here is working incredibly hard not getting a lot of sleep. People are doing their best. You'll critcism doesn't help, but the issue is that there according to Casey Briggs who is the font of knowledge when you? Analyzing numbers. Are over three thousand, least yesterday, the war's over three thousand. Cases still under investigation. So how do you say with any degree of confidence? What's happening when three thousand cases are under investigation and again according to Casey, some of those of been over a fortnight long and remember what you see today is what happened five or ten days ago in Victoria, it's not what happened yesterday in Victoria. It's these people have been infected and found because of stuff that happened some time ago, and there's this constant delay in the system. System. And what you hope was that the lockdown that occurred the isolation of the suburbs, the lockdown occurred masks would start to see a significant bend of the curve. It hasn't happened, yet it will. It will happen. But when will it happen and if you're in Victoria it becomes very dispiriting as you're just hanging out and hoping that the lockdown only last six weeks, and here we are three weeks passed on Wednesday Friday and the numbers keep on going up. And again, if you look at the numbers, the majority are not this time in aged care according to what I understand from the figures. Yesterday, we can only say that one hundred of seven, hundred km from each care, six, hundred didn't. So what's going on here and you've got all the investigation presumably, you don't know where they came from. The at risk of losing its handle on the outbreak, well, you're not seeing seven thousand, but you are seeing seven hundred. And you are seeing this roller coaster where it goes down then goes up, but the rolling average keeps on going up, and if it keeps on going played this, they haven't got a a strong handle on. They've got a bit of a handle on it because it's not exponential growth, which is what it would be. If you had no hand. Lona at all, but it is slow and steady growth, it's not. In the say, well, Luke Kuechly effective reproduction numbers coming down to one or below one. Is it. Do they really know that if they've got so many under investigation, it's hard to know how they're generating their numbers because it's not absolutely transparent. We have to trust that they're doing that. And I. Think there's a bit of what I call viral volume going on, which is don't you worry about it? We're. We're. We've got this under control comes from the Komo through age care. Well, how do you have so many age care homes affected if there isn't a fundamental problem with each care and how it's run at least in the private sector in Australia? No matter where you are in Australia listening to Corona cast, you've got the same problem with. With private care in your state, this is not a Victorian problem. This is a national problem, the responsibility of the Commonwealth government, not you're not the individual state government. We've got an H. K. Royal Commission going on at the moment for other problems, each care, this is a sector that's under stress and we haven't proactively parachuted into age care. The sorts of support that they need to prevent an outbreak in each care, you go problem inside the moment for. Complete nightmare and guarantee it.

"Been I. I think that's the case. I thought I had read that somewhere. But even if it's not it's it's a good field certainly for a to life a type of event. I think that based on what you can expect pace-wise you WanNa give Royal Commission a really long look and and this is a horse that obviously Jimmy Devito who I think is very sharp and very carefully this source ran well on debut at oaklawn and really was never going to have much of a chance in in a an allowance race with no parole so he was going to need some type of software competition. Of course that was straight three-year-olds this is a race for for three year olds and up but with an aggressive jockey on board at a pace scenario that even despite this bulky field you're really only going to be dealing with a horse like newsflash Royal Commission and I would say we're real commission is quicker so I think I think he's a horse you absolutely want to include on on any kind of multi-race play. I'm also a little interested in Hersh cutting back. I don't think he's wanted to go along. I think that he's been a little foolishly spotted on numerous occasions in his career and I think he's had some things work against him. That actually do end up Proving to be decent excuses he needed to drop in classes while the sources probably just the claim is probably high level claimer but I think you in using those those horses you give yourself a lot of balance and running style because clearly royal commission will be close to the lead and hearst feels like a horse will be making one run late so I would I would make sure to use. Both admire has been facing considerably better competition. Horses like Blewett Moretti Al-Mashreq glumness gate. They're they're going to be. They would be overwhelming. They wouldn't be eligible of course but it will be overwhelming favorites race like this. You want to include him as well. I'm just another horse looking like he's getting to the right spot from a class perspective so another situation where you're probably going to need to be at.

Actually you are the fist finance breaker that we've had on the podcast so super excited to lend more about finance breaking as well was the book that you've written which is called fee money and purpose. Well let's the thrill thank you so. It's paint pretty interesting finance wise in Australia. In the last twelve months with the Banking Royal Commission and all of that sort of thing so give us a bit of a helicopter view of. What's been going on there from your angle? Yeah will I mean without without getting into too much of the the needy greedy I think everybody saw that unfolding over the media in the in the news and the like I guess looking at it from a small business perspective effective and then personally for me. The timing couldn't have been worse because it was on the eve of the release of the recommendations of the Royal Commission that I was about about to hit play on on publishing and you can imagine here. I am written a book about fear and small business owners and the biggest significant ignificant event. That had happened that I'd written about in the book had been the AFC so all of a sudden I felt has my book. Just become irrelevant overnight. because there's no references being made to the Royal Commission mission so we kind of pulled pulled it back went back. Did some work on it just to to reference the Royal Commission but certainly that week was a very turbulent let wake once the the findings and recommendations are being released particularly with a lot of colleagues who were like myself uncertain of well. What's going to happen? I mean if looking at taking away our trailing income which for for a real estate office is like taking away your read roll. That's how many years of investment into getting adding that to the level that it was all or even what's my business going to be worse. Is this industry going to be viable. What's going to happen to complain? So we can anytime people so so there was all those questions being thrown up and on the other side. You've got the new entrance because I do a lot of mentoring in our industry many of the new entrance our work with a less than in two years experienced summit only started in the preceding quarter. On what sort of an industry of I just come into. Is it even going to be around in in the next two years so certainly a lot of dialogue had been happening a lot of conversation but like with anything. I think the election sort of happened. It then was. Let's leave everything as it is for now. I mean there were few changes being made from the banking side of things. I'm certainly for compliance. We've we've this things coming in like you know best interest judy and those things things which I'm not gonNA go into too much but what I think the like anything where there's adversity. I say there's opportunity and what I've seen a lot of business owners do including elves has been to go back and ordered our business and say right will. This was a bit of a scare. This was a bit of a Shaker how we running business today. And what are the things that we could be doing better and whether through processes operations retention sales all the rest of it so it certainly a good opportunity for for business owners to be reviewing doing what they're doing today to ensure that if changes do coming threes time which is still hanging over our head then way will equipped for whatever that may be yes. at least it's giving you a bit of time to think about it and I think that's probably it's good advice for any business. I think I'm with any business. One thing it does soon realizes. Hey I've been so caught up in the day to day and being reactive. I haven't actually been proactive. And and it's typically. It's it's something that you know we everyone's out to try and and bring money in pay the bills and and have cash flow.

Installed life pro, and they changed their induction to say you know what we're not gonNA teach people anymore to memorize things because it's in the system, so let's reduce their induction from six weeks till week. And so the agents after only having one week induction, good on the phones and the client clients asking you about insurance so talking union insurance. Company didn't actually sell insurance, so nothing's coming up. But within a week because they provide the feedback, that client then had information on the database about what they didn't do. Yep, because that's what the customs wanted to not and interestingly Justin within six months company then started deciding to sell insurance because they had such demand for, but that's not a knowledge management system. So So I, I certainly I think it's pretty clear for at least knew that the there's some benefit to the business by customer experience, productivity, which I juiced induction Tom Etcetera, and therefore and having dealt with you for a number of years now it's not it's not an expensive proposition.

Is there a minimum number that you typically look for like ten agents? Five agents? One agent Memphis took over left predators a minimum of twenty. Said look this, not have a minimum to be honest. Anybody's got a team of four. An actually think they've got so many other things to focus on the actually. Focus on getting a knowledge management system I actually don't think you need one many up, but we've clients with five with five agents on it, and they using it really well. Yup so now identifies. We could other clients that use. Eighteen hundred people so it. Doesn't really matter Connecticut big thing likely. I, think because the Royal Commission is the whole compliance. Yes, just her sister at a say right. Yeah, has that? Well. See if if it's a customer experience Knowledge Management System you've got first of all. You got the workflow, so you've got somebody Q. Writing. The knowledge then has to go through to get approval from the SME from compliance, maybe from legal maybe for marketing. And you can track all the changes and all the processes. And this version control will so the compliance people one know that the agents referring to the most up-to-date correct approved knowledge. And they can also that the analytics. You can also see that if you're talking to a person three o'clock on Friday afternoon. What knowledge with looking at looking at the right knowledge? Said they forward. They're giving the right answer than they linked with. Call Recording and everything but. Compliance manages has taken a very big interest in it lightly on the stand, and so just to talk to me about that because he's like anything John. Junqueira I'm guessing so what you put into law or any of the systems is is obviously really important that offering that you just spoke about..

We wanna seeming we want to see him for all I in hell that is a child sex abuse victim now that he's an adult. Talking about cardinal, George Pell. The highest ranking Roman Catholic leader ever convicted of sexual abuse. Pell sentencing comes down tomorrow officially and could be the maximum of fifty years in prison. ABC's David Wright is following this case and joins us live right now. The this man was so high up in the church wasn't. He ended visor to the pope. Yeah. He was part of the sort of cabinet. The cardinals that pope Francis named to help him run the day to day affairs of the church, and he was basically the number three guy at the Vatican. The pope, then the secretary of state and then the papal treasurer. So that was his position. He's now no longer part of the pope's cabinet. I'm not sure if he retains his title of the treasurer or not. But if he does not for long today. The Vatican issued a statement saying that it respects the Australia Justice system, it will await the appeal, but it respects the court's decision and David this just comes days after the sexual abuse summit at the Vatican house the church responding in secondary. Is that coincidental? Timing. It's not coincidental. Timing this conviction actually happened back in December. And what drove the timing of? It was that there was a second round of charges related to a separate incident with cardinal Pell that was due to be tried this week that case got thrown out and with it the gag order that had been in place on the earlier conviction. So it's just a piece of bad timing on the part of the Vatican. But you know, it could the timing. Really? Couldn't be worse for the past week. The focus has been on the church trying to address this and saying that there should be no more tolerance for priests who abuse bishops who cover it up and that the church needs to be transparent. Now, the highest ranking church official ever has been convicted of this. And you know, they can't play. But this is something that's distant or or for this had to do with a conviction on molesting to choirboys. Has there been? More of an indication about the sentence expected. Tomorrow is is it going to be fifty years likely? I it's not clear the court has been lenient with with regard to his age and infirmity even though he was convicted back in December. They put off sentencing for a number of months because he needed to get knee surgery. And they said, you know, he's an old guy with rail guy. We got to let him get the medical care that he needs. It's altogether possible that they make you from house arrest. But if they do do that there will be outcry in Australia Australia's in some ways even farther down the road of exposing the scandal than we are here in this country. They had a nationwide. Royal commission look into sexual abuse in across the country over the past decades, and they made some very serious recommendations Vatican up to and including requesting that the church set aside, the bail of the the absolute veil of secrecy that comes with confession. So that if somebody in confession told the priest about an act of sexual abuse that priests would be duty bound to report, it, the church agreed to everything that the Royal commission wanted not that they said that that was breaking of court church doctrine. But Australia knows knows this issue. They're angry about this issue. And they want to see Justice ABC's, David, right? Thank you so much for your time. Thanks money. News now at seven.
