Since starting at The Rocks markets I’ve had far more international customers and it’s been quite fascinating getting to see from their experiences.
One of the most enjoyable and interesting perspectives is how we, as Australians, are seen. We give a really good impression to our visitors.
I think this is great. We all value the good hostess and host. We all appreciate being warmly welcomed and greeted. And apparently we, as a community and as individuals, are good at this with our visitors.
We are seen as being friendly, laid back, sharing and welcoming. Initially I was taking these sort of compliments as nothing too serious, not having much value but I’ve thought more about it.
