After months of preparation I am finally in Australia. Touched down in Sydney last night.
The in flight entertainment gave me some food for thought watching the film Darkest Hour which I have wanted to see since first applying for my Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship. The film depicts the dramatic entrance of Britain to the war, how Churchill becomes PM and the critical moment when the nation decided to fight rather than surrender to the Nazis. Im not a history geek but I enjoyed the reflection of Churchill as a master orator with some gem speeches including…
‘You can’t negotiate with a tiger while your head is on its mouth.’
‘Those that never change their mind never change anything.’
I won’t be negotiating with any tigers but do stay tuned to have your mind changed (or knowledge updated) about the fantastic work being done by advanced practitioner physios out here.
As Churchill said, success is not final, so, although I’m here now, starting my trip there is lots more work to do.
