“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey.

The lights are up and shining bright across Fremantle! I love the fact that our businesses have embraced the brief to offer something whimsical, creative and truly unique – there are no flashing light giant Santas in our line up of windows this year. Simply beautiful, considered creations by business owners with passion and care that are inviting you to take a good look to see all the detail inside.

We have already received over 500 votes for the public’s favourites which is amazing. Vote now for your favourite window here.

I hope you have also had a chance to get out and about to experience the DJs and Deck Chairs, the Carols and all the other activities around our incredible Port city this week. See the full line up of activities for the 12 days of Christmas here.

It has been a big week of passionate projects. We gathered for the inaugural meeting of the Future Fremantle Committee yesterday, followed by an amazing conversation with three leaders of the blue economy discussing their leadership journeys and how best to ride the wave into the unknown of emerging industries. Well worth a listen at our Fremantle Chamber podcast station here.

This was followed by end of year functions for a number of our members including &Partners, HubonSX, Detail Marketing and Communications. Detail’s beautifully styled office filled with so much local talent was such a wonderful example of the potential of the incredible upper stories on our High St. A stunningly executed space and event.

All this energy and passion is quite exhausting though so looking forward to slightly calmer seas next week, and seeing you all the 99.9% sold out Chamber Christmas Party on Tuesday.
