In this episode of Business over Breakfast sponsored by Auswide bank, Bree and Andrew cover a load of topics starting with the understated importance of cross-industry innovation. This is a seriously cool idea for learning from other businesses outside of your own industry, and Bree and Andrew explain how you can capitalise on it.


The episode also features the podcast’s very first interview. Bree goes out and chats with Oliver James, founder of Caffiend. Caffiend is a killer cafe based in Cairns that prides itself on exceptional coffee, big flavour food and an innovative atmosphere. Oliver prides himself on being a real coffee aficionado and has even traveled to Ethiopia in search of inspiration for the perfect blend. And his efforts are really paying off as Caffiend is generating some serious buzz.


As always, Bree and Andrew share five top tips that you can take away and action straightaway, this time on the art of time management. They also talk about three left-field businesses that are pushing the idea of niche to the extreme.


Here are just a few of the key topics that Bree and Andrew get really into:

  • How cross-industry innovation can really help small to medium sized businesses
  • The art of asking better questions
  • Adopting different ideas
  • Oliver James’ - the founder of Caffiend - journey and how he became an expert in coffee, food presentation and the perfect hipster look
  • How having a business mentor can help entrepreneurs who are just getting started to overcome some of the more difficult hurdles
  • Becoming successful through sharing ideas and being open
  • The importance in having trust in yourself, especially when it comes to decision making
  • Tips on how to break down tasks
  • Managing meetings better
  • Bree and Andrew’s advice on batch working days
  • How to avoid distractions at work
