It’s my favourite time in my blog schedule, when I shine a light on my incredible clients by way of my The Proust Questionnaire feature. Today we have one of my favourite humans, Mark LeBusque, the bogan from Mildura himself (his words, not mine, but I bloody love them!). Mark works with leadership teams across Australia to be more human and to improve the effectiveness of their teams. Mark’s the bee’s knees as you’re about to discover.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

There’s no such thing as perfect happiness but a manicured lawn is something that fills my cup.
