Tim Minchin is an exemplar of MBA Thinking and the Professor will carry his flame throughout the Adelaide Fringe

It was drawn to my attention that Tim Minchin AM will not be appearing at the 2021 Adelaide Fringe, leaving the role of higher education messaging to my good self.

It is a heavy burden to bear but I do so gladly.

What do we have in common?

  • We both command stages in front of audiences of people eager to reach out and grasp our ideas
  • We were both on stage during Tim’s address at the University of WA in 2013
  • And we both believe one should test one’s ideas with vigour, doubt, and even cricket bats

As a matter of fact, in relation to being hard on your beliefs by taking them out onto your verhanda and hitting them with a cricket bat (as Tim advocates in his address), it is a common sight for our neighbours to see my good lady wife and I having a good old crack at it in the front yard on pleasant summer evenings.

We also take things a little further than just wielding the Willow about. Sometimes my beloved rolls her arm over too, much to my delight, because she is usually bang on middle stump!

Therefore, during A Lunchtime MBA, every weekday at 1pm at Treasury 1860 during the Adelaide Fringe Semester, I will indeed be giving it a little bit of wrist as you gather around for lunch before leaving with your MBA certificate at 2pm.

This is what MBA Thinking and Adelaide Fringe Thinking is all about.

For further inspiration, I will leave you with Tim’s speech, noting that somehow I was edited out of the video, even though you can see I was clearly there on stage. Such is the senstivity and voracious competition between institutions of higher learning; a topic you will cover and applaud in your MBA.
