I’m not short listed for the island job. Good luck to those who are and thanks to those who watched my video and supported my application with a good rating. Making the video was an interesting learning experience and I got some helpful feedback. My video was obviously not persuasive enough for Tourism Queensland, which keeps running a nearly perfect marketing campaign in the age of persuasion.
Tourism Queensland engages the audience just right, keeping control of the process and steering clear of GM’s embarassing mistake reported by CNN and still partially visible on YouTube three years later.
No six months on the Great Barrier Reef for us, at least for now. I just booked flights for our first family vacation ever. To Florida. We can take it easier and gradually adjust our logistic to travel with a baby without having to deal with time zone differences yet.
