My TED story

Somewhere, deep within us is the ability to know more than we can possibly learn or remember. We haven't learned how to follow gut feel, ask the right questions and take risks. Many times I get an understanding of this and as I grasp hold of it it disappears. As my journey continues I have questioned and uncovered a family secret...which has led me to discover why streets were named after me and my mother. My mother had an affair, secretly for 15 years, in the midst of a so called happy nuclear family. She and dad were holocaust survivors, and arriving in Australia - within months, even speaking little or no English, she met and fell in love with a second man, a secret she kept all her life. I have always felt different. I have always questioned. Now as I reach 60 I have discovered a new father, 6 new brothers and sisters and a power of the mind that we all need to develop.

What do people see for the future in terms of relationships and sexuality?
Whilst people seem to be more open in their virtual world, there seems almost a set back in face to face communication and relationship skills. Maybe the skill level is growing for managing multi-relationships virtually (FaceBook)- but does this impact monogomy? I don't know! I definitely think the classifications will become less important. I am just producing another sexual education video right now (Herpes the Secret is Out) and in a section where we were planning to have a male and female 'model' animation we now have 6 models - 2 female, 2 male as well as the usual male and female.

Should High Schools implement condom availability programs?
Great idea! Yes I totally agree. But we need education along with the supply of condoms. I have been producing videos on sex education for young people and am just finishing one on herpes. Last one was on chlamydia. It would be ideal to make condoms freely available in schools. Sex, marriage, relationships are all different topics, and whilst they overlap STRONGLY for some, the data is that they are separate topics in practice for most young people. Having condoms available will not make someone who doesn't want to have sex yet have it.

What do employees want the most?
They want fun, recognition, friendship and leaders who are visionary, honest and take interest in their people. Many also want opportunities to do positive things for the community and the environment.

Reforming the education system
We have to start young, VERY young. I am trying with some animated cartoons that hopefully will empower kids to speak up, communicate more effectively and most importantly stand up for their rights and learn their responsibilities. It's called FINDING MY MAGIC and in it children learn about the power within them (inside a 'magic box' with 'me messages'). Just finished - hope it has the impact it needs.
