So why did I become a Director of beyondblue?

Well I was sitting in my office minding my own business a few years ago, and I received a call and the person on the phone said: "Hello Michael this is Jeffrey Kennett, the Chair of beyondblue. I'm going to ask you a question and the only answer I'll accept is yes". I said: "Oh hello Mr. Kennett. What's the question?' He said: "Will you become a Director of beyondblue?" I said: "Well, I just need to think about it. You said:  "No, weren't you listening? The only answer will accept is yes."

So I became a Director.
