    Memorable interaction from my time at WB.
    Me dressed up wearing formal suit/trousers, Nik wearing old looking (probably designer)well worn cargo pants and a pink polo shirt)…
    Nik: you’re dressed up?
    Me: Yes, I’ve got a big meeting this afternoon
    Nik: Yeah, so do I (laughs)
    (We’re going to the same meeting with Grocon & BHP (ie: big hitters))

    Huge amount of respect for Nik, he’s spend time in the trenches doing actual ‘hands-on’ work in the past so has an understanding of the reality of what we architects/interior designers put on paper.
