Coverage in The Australian

Interesting commentary by Rebecca Urban in The Australian this morning. A big thank you to the hundreds of people from the Australian biosciences industry who reached out in personal support over the past few weeks. I actually wish Chris Roberts every success. Notwithstanding my views on the product, if anyone should be able to fix the company’s corporate governance,…

JP Morgan Healthcare Conference – 2016

What a great way to kick off the year – the JP Morgan healthcare conference. I should be clear, I was a “hanger on” this year, I didn’t actually have an invite to attend the conference itself. For most entrepreneurs, this is far from a deterrent to be there and to take advantage of such…

I note that I…

Happy New Year – 2016

It’s been an interesting year. When I started this site I really didn’t know what was going to happen… in most respects, it has exceeded my expectations. A Few Opening Remarks On a positive note, I genuinely felt support for the mission of trying to create a fresh dialogue around the quality and transparency of ASX-listed companies operating in this…

OSL : Follow-up

I should note that all of this information is actually reasonably consistent with the discussion I had with Daniel Kenny (CEO) last week, with one exception and I…
