The editor’s desk

In time for Mother’s Day is our portrait of a modern Melbourne mum. Meet Alex Pendlebury; to get acquainted with her here, within these pages, is not too dissimilar to following her on social media. She is candid, realistic and passionate about using her platform to share her health knowledge (as a nutritionist). She and husband Scott Pendlebury, skipper of AFL club Collingwood, have built a beautifully designed home, from the pen of architect Adam Kane, and welcome us inside. Look out for family dog Lenni – a regular and favourite on Alex’s Instagram – making a cameo. ●

FIRST PERSON

““I am Loic Avril ” … and I’m Restaurant Manager of Wine at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal I grew up in a small town in France’s Loire Valley –

the sort of place where there are more vines than people, so it’s easy to fall in love with the scenery and be curious about wine. I am the eldest of three children (sister Carole and brother Ludovic) but the only one in my family who works in the industry. Seeing my parents (Philippe and Evelyne) drink at the table is where my curiosity began. Around the age of 14 and while studying at secondary school, I moved into hospitality for parttime work. I was always looking for an escape. I came across one of the biggest restaurants in the region – a two-star Michelin called Jean Bardet. It’s here I really appreciated the scenery, loved the sleek dining environment and fine tablecloths. I moved to the Michelin-star restaurant Anne de Bretagne (Loire-Atlantique) after that. The hotel and restaurant faced the sea, had 25,000 bottles of wine in its collection and it was amazing to serve guests there within this amazing view. I moved to England in 2007, the year I won Best Young Sommelier. I started working at The Fat Duck in Bray in 2009 (at age 23) as assistant head sommelier. I first met Heston Blumenthal on the ninth of February, 2009. I’ll never forget it. I was in the dining room starting my first shift and setting up a table. A man entered the room and came up to me and welcomed me to The Fat Duck. He welcomes you with a hello and an openness, too. I won Best Young Sommelier in the World from the Chaines des Rotisseurs in 2013 and beat 10 competitors. It’s not really about being a top star, it’s about what you have learnt and how you bring this knowledge to the diners with the best hospitality approach ever. I moved to Melbourne with my wife in 2015 for the opening at Crown of Dinner by Heston. I have led the wine program ever since. I am required to update lists daily – every day is a new day and has to be looked at with new eyes. It’s important to not rush, it will have a big impact if you do. We are here to discover the world like a one or two-year-old might. You can’t read and learn everything immediately. For me there is an emotional connection with wine. ● ● dinnerbyheston.com.au

COVER STORY With so many strings to her bow, businesswoman

Alex Pendlebury is as unstoppable off-field as her AFL star husband is on it.

T

he story of one of Melbourne’s highestprofile couples began about 12 years ago, when Alex Pendlebury was introduced to her husband, Collingwood Football Club captain Scott Pendlebury. They have been inseparable since. “We met when we were 19 – he played basketball for my home town in Eltham,” Alex says. “We met through a mutual friend, I think he was in the VFL back then and then started in the AFL. “So we have been together for a long time.” The couple, both now 31, were married in Bali in October 2015 during the football off-season. They have a son, Jax, who is two this month. Scott is a supreme midfielder – a Norm Smith medallist, multiple All-Australian and Magpies’ best and fairest, among many accolades – and the leader of one of the biggest and most scrutinised AFL clubs. Scott and Alex – a qualified nutritionist and professional model signed with the Chadwick agency – are quietly building a business empire, running the Progression Fitness Club out of The Glasshouse at the Olympic Park complex. “I did a bachelor of food science and nutrition degree and graduated a few years ago,” she says. “I started modelling while I was studying and it wasn’t something I thought I was going to do long-term, but I got some good clients while I was at uni. “When I finished my degree I didn’t want to give it up, so I kind of just started to combine the two and found that really worked.” With nearly 75,000 followers on Instagram, she has worked hard to build her brand in her own right, away from the term “WAG”, which was popular a decade ago. “I love social media,” she says. “It gives everyone a voice and, for me, I’ve got a direct community that I can speak to and help. “In terms of nutrition, it’s great because when I was practising it was one-on-one, but with social media you can reach 80,000 people with the same message, so I think it’s a good thing.” Tissot watches is one Alex’s working relationships; as an accomplished model, her role is as a friend of the brand. “The Tissot watch is a beautiful watch and they are a great family to be involved in,” she says. The Pendleburys can also add successful renovators to their growing resume. They have just spent three years building their dream home, by architect Adam Kane and Hardwick Build Co, in one of Melbourne’s bayside suburbs. With high ceilings, open-plan living, a lap pool

and finished with distinctive art work, the couple’s labour of love ranks alongside some of the best beachside properties. With little Jax saying “Go Pies” as we chat on the couches at their new family home, Alex says she has caught the building and renovation bug. “My dad is a builder so I’ve always wanted to build because I’ve just grown up around that,” she says. “We searched for land for a long time because we wanted to pick the right spot with the size and everything. “We finally found some land and we bought it the day before our wedding. We’ve had our hiccups as well but it’s been really, really, fun. We want to do it again – we’ve got the itch.” When Scott retires from Collingwood, the producers of The Block could sign up the couple – they are naturals.

T

he Pendlebury family spent an idyllic six months in Mount Martha before recently moving in, including a stint over the summer months, offering a change from the hustle of city life. “The house got held up and we had to find somewhere to live for six months,” Alex says. “Obviously we still worked, but it was a nice little break from Melbourne. The drive was OK for Scott, it was literally just freeway to freeway and he did all his phone calls and unwinding while driving. “We choose to live here because it’s closer to work and more realistic, but it was so nice living down there for a while.” Life as one of football’s most recognisable couples can be challenging in the fishbowl that is

Melbourne when it comes to the AFL. The focus was firmly on Scott last year after Collingwood’s heartbreaking five-point loss to West Coast in the grand final. As expected, the skipper handled the defeat with sportsmanship and grace. “It was a crazy day,” Alex recalls. “The game was so close the whole time, I just wanted it so badly for him and he would have wanted it so much more. “Let’s hope for this year.” The attention can be relentless, but the Pendleburys mostly stay out of the headlines and the regard Scott is held in doesn’t attract wanton negativity. But remaining private is easier said than done. “It’s not too bad for us,” Alex says. “I’m a pretty relaxed person, I’m not out and about all that much so it kind of doesn’t really affect us. “We’re pretty private home bodies anyway, so it’s not too bad for us, really.” Other than the Brownlow Medal or official Collingwood functions, the couple stay clear of red carpet functions and it’s not all about the game when they’re at home. “We talk a little bit about footy, I’ll ask how his day went, but we don’t talk too much about,” she says. They are likely to spend Mother’s Day at home, enjoying their new place, with Collingwood playing Carlton in an MCG blockbuster the day before. Alex enjoys going to matches, especially to watch little Jax grow familiar with what his dad does for a living. She says she continues to admire the athlete and person her husband is, as each AFL season rolls forward. “It’s more the mental side of Scott that amazes me the most,” Alex says. “He’s just so grounded and just always so positive. “I think it comes from his sporting background that he has this amazing positive attitude.” ●

Melanie Gleeson WHO \ Founder

and chief executive of Endota Spa, living on the Mornington Peninsula WHAT \ Launching new range for mums and bubs

E In t e r v i e w b y

JA N E R O C CA

ndota Spa founder Melanie Gleeson opened her business in Mount Martha 19 years ago with a high school friend and a $5000 credit card. Now she runs a multimillion-dollar company with more than 100 stores around the country, all thanks to her vision that our commitment to wellness isn’t a luxury – it’s a daily ritual we should all be doing. “The wellness industry has exploded because we need it as a human race,” says Gleeson, a married

mother of two sons (Jimmy, 6 and Fergus, 10), who lives in McCrae on the Mornington Peninsula. “It is something I have been committed to for 20 years and my journey is ongoing,” she says. Now, in a career first, Gleeson has launched a Nurture Baby range in time for Mother’s Day. Her desire to expand in this area stems from her commitment to product transparency and developing a range safe for mothers and babies to use. Developed with leading research

scientist Hayley Dickinson– best known for her work in reproductive physiology – the Endota range is about knowing what’s inside the products you use at any point of your journey of becoming a mother, from pregnancy to post-partum. “There is so much information out there on what ingredients you should or shouldn’t use as a mother,” Gleeson says. “What I want to do with the mother and baby range is inspire women to get back to basics with premium products that are not harmful to us. “I felt after I had my first baby I lost a bit of my intuition because I was listening to everybody else’s opinion. There was a moment when I said to myself I am going to stop listening to everybody and go with what feels right for me.” From certified organic products she introduced to the business 13 years ago to an Endota Spa range

that covers serums and masks, Gleeson is proud of her achievements. “When we went down the organic path more than a decade ago, not many manufacturers could make organic products,” she recalls. “I saw value in using raw potent ingredients and we worked hard to make it happen … it’s proven a winner and we’re happy with it.” Gleeson has learnt to drop the guilt when it comes to self-care. “I do daily guided meditations, yoga and need to walk on the beach and feel the ocean water on my feet,” she says. “Wellness has found its way into the beauty industry and it’s all about putting yourself first, having ingredient awareness like never before and taking time out of your busy schedule to pamper yourself. “When I feel good, I am better for my community and my place within my family and work life. Looking after ourselves is imperative.” ●

s I sashayed along Rodeo Drive, I bumped into a bloke who was wearing a powder-blue uniform. He wasn't a police officer, nor was he a parking inspector or a cabbie. The broad-shouldered dude with a friendly demeanour and innocuous name badge revealed he was a “Beverly Hills ambassador”. His job entailed hospitality, outreach and security. “I could walk you to your car, ask someone to stop smoking in the street, suggest some cool restaurants or perhaps help a homeless person,” he elaborated. Luxuriating in the knowledge I had three days in Beverly Hills (a well-heeled neighbourhood of Los Angeles), I had felt drawn towards this main drag for a lazy day of retail therapy. There's no need to be intimidated by the plethora of opulent retail spaces because, mostly, they're extremely welcoming. I meandered past Michael Kors, gawked at Gucci and swooned at Swarovski.

Personal shopping I turned to La La Luxe for a personalised VIP shopping tour, with a custom itinerary devised by the personable Courtnee Scully. The three-hour retail frenzy included an enchanting trip to Jason of Beverly Hills (exquisite jewellery and watch boutique) where I learnt which superstar had bought which diamond trinket. For the record, songstress Katy Perry adores the syringe ring filled with teeny blood-red rubies and singer Rhianna is a fan of the hefty, revolver ring with rotating gun barrel. Espresso coffee and shortbread biscuits were enjoyed as I perched on the pistachio-hued retro lounge at Prada and admired three levels of glorious fashion and wearable art. Then I was led through Neiman Marcus (a shopping haven unto itself) to Bloom's Room, where the most exquisite pieces are sourced by stylist Catherine Bloom and showcased to a select few.

After that, I wasn’t completely convinced I could drop a dress size, but I donned an apparatus that resembled a wired-up sleeping bag and lay down for twenty minutes at Upgrade Labs – a “biohacking gym”. I did feel “lighter” and was tempted to try full body cryotherapy, but instead I finished at The Spa on Rodeo Drive, where I experienced my best ever massage. ●

hen I hear people say, “I have a slow metabolism”, my answer is, “Do you really? Or are you simply preventing it from reaching its potential?” To release your metabolic handbrake, address these five mistakes.

YOU CRASH DIET \ Sure, restricting your calories

or skipping meals might cause you to lose weight quickly but, more often than not, you’ll put it all back on and then some. Dramatically lowering your calorie intake for prolonged periods of time puts your body into “starvation mode”. This means it can sense that food might be limited so it starts to conserve energy by reducing the amount of calories you burn. It’s your body’s way of protecting you from starvation.

R E S I S TA N C E T R A I N I N G I S K E Y

YOU’RE STRESSED \ Stress releases the hormone

YOU’RE NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP \

cortisol and too much cortisol can interrupt our bodies’ metabolic processes and ability to burn fat. Cortisol is considered a catabolic hormone, meaning it breaks down muscle for energy. Loss of muscle can ultimately cause a decrease in your metabolism as the greater muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn even when you’re simply going about your day-to-day life. One stressful incident might not affect your metabolism too much, but prolonged stress – and therefore muscle breakdown – can.

Prolonged sleep deprivation can cause what is known as “metabolic grogginess”. This means that your body’s metabolic rate decreases and you burn fewer calories. Bummer. Not to mention that when you’re sleep-deprived you’re more likely to skip your early morning workout.

YOU DON’T DO RESISTANCE TRAINING \

Incorporating resistance training into your routine is not only a fantastic way to tone and shape your muscles but also to increase your metabolism. The more lean muscle you have, the more calories you burn – even at rest.

YOU’RE NOT EATING REAL FOOD \ A balanced,

wholefood diet packed with foods that have a high thermic effect can help to naturally boost your metabolism. You should make especially sure that you are getting enough protein and high-quality good fats. High-quality proteins have a high thermic effect but are also good at promoting satiety, keeping you fuller for longer. ● ● 28bysamwood.com

EDUCATION & INNOVATION

The science of learning

JOHN DONEGAN

N

ot long after Alli Lehmann joined Genazzano FCJ College in 2017, she volunteered to be part of a pilot project at the school. Organised as part of the Genazzano Institute of Learning and Brain Sciences, the professional development program explored the fascinating world of neuroscience. In particular, the Science of Learning program looks at how neuroscience underpins learning and can be used by teachers to boost student learning and engagement. The program, developed by neuroscientist and educator Dr Jared Cooney Horvath, consists of five modules supported by a series of information sessions and “micro-projects”. Since last year, it has been rolled out to all Genazzano teachers and has been supported by the College’s engagement with the University of Melbourne’s Science of Learning Schools Partnership initiative. As a VCE psychology teacher, Lehmann already recognised the versatility of neuroscience. She says teachers across diverse subject areas feel the program has been beneficial to themselves and their students. “There are a lot of experienced teachers at Genazzano who have a wealth of knowledge. The Science of Learning program injects some new research into their teaching practice,” Lehmann says. “The whole premise of the program is that teachers are the experts in the classroom, but it provides us with another lens for viewing our teaching practice and for understanding why certain strategies, activities or ways of structuring our lessons are more effective than others. It gives us an underpinning of why certain things work by explaining what goes on in the adolescent brain.” Lehmann says the micro-projects completed during each module have been particularly helpful. Projects are based on the program’s Psychology Education Neuroscience (PEN) Principles. Her first project explored the “multi-tasking impairs memory and learning” principle. “I noticed a lot of girls in my class used their laptops to take notes as I presented, but with that comes the email or Messenger alerts. I wanted to see what happened if we went back to the basics of pen and paper,” Lehmann says.

A L LI L E H M A N N & S T U D E N T S B R O N T E , E LI Z A & C L AU D IA

“The girls had already identified that sometimes they struggled to stay on track when they used their laptops for note-taking in class and without them I found the girls were more engaged in class time, they had a better understanding of the knowledge and they felt more on task.” Lehmann’s second micro-project centred on the “embrace error to improve learning” principle. She has developed structures around how students receive feedback on exams and assignments to ensure they know what they need to do to use that feedback. “The process encourages the students to identify what happens next with their own learning. It’s encouraging them to really engage with the feedback,” she says. “It helps them look at areas for growth and recognises what they are doing well. The girls have said they feel calmer about receiving feedback and they now have a positive relationship with it, rather than seeing feedback as negative.” Findings from micro-projects are shared and discussed by teaching staff so they can cherry pick

strategies and techniques that work well and introduce them into their own teaching practice. Lehmann says the program is building consistency which benefits students across all year levels and subjects. Genazzano also promotes education on the brain and learning for the wider community, hosting a series of seminars and conferences to share insights and latest research. The program is already delivering positive results at the school, too. “The research has demonstrated that increased confidence and engagement both have a positive impact on academic performance, and this is reflected in the girls’ VCE results,” she says. “I came to Genazzano to teach because the school is a learning community that values staff learning and development whilst promoting the education of students and the wider community. I never want to stop growing, developing and learning and that is what Genazzano is all about.” ● SARAH MARINOS

5 Tips on how to sell for more in 2019 1. Accept the market was overpriced – The market is not falling from fundamental value, it is falling to fundamental value. When you accept the market was overvalued, the downturn becomes less painful and the next decision becomes easier to make. Waiting for prices to return to fresh highs means you won’t be selling in 2019 or 2020 for that matter. 2. Accept the market conditions – The vendor that fails to accept the market conditions and rails against reality, ultimately sells for less. Patience is a virtue, stubbornness is not. Knowing where the transition line is – this can be difficult to ascertain. If you are on the market for well above the suburb’s average timeframe, maybe patience is not the issue. 3. Accept that inaction is feedback – If the agent has run a good campaign and the buyers are not engaging and/or making offers, then the inaction is feedback. Blaming the agent is easy, it offers short term relief but it seldom changes the challenge at hand. Make it easy for the agent to tell you exactly what is happening and what you need to know. An interested buyer is easy to identify, they are clearly interested. Therefore, a disinterested buyer is easy to spot too, they are obviously disinterested. If the market at large is disinterested, the pricing strategy could be wrong.

4. Accept the agent’s guidance – Markets can turn quickly. The agent may assess the value of your home at $1 million, but by the time you list on the market, it could be $975,000. It’s no good if the agent is trying to achieve a high price for you whilst the market drops below it. If the agent detects a change in market conditions, accept their guidance if it seems credible. In the last quarter of 2018, property prices deteriorated rapidly. Those that accepted their agent’s guidance probably sold for more than those that resisted the advice. 5. Accept the best offer – It’s simple advice, but it’s not as easy to get right when prices are falling. The greatest tragedy when selling real estate is not selling for less than you wanted, it’s selling for less than you previously rejected. If you need or really want to sell in 2019, it’s imperative that you identify the best buyer and sell to them. There are two huge hurdles you need to overcome in achieving this simple goal. Firstly, the high quoting agent at the time of listing can blind you to reality during the actual campaign. Secondly, the best offers tend to come early in the campaign.

The Architects Choice

Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for most of the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs formerly at the Royal Victorian Eye Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery from 1963! He has now passed away but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,â€? Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision due to congenital cataracts even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is deďŹ nitely the best part of my job.â€? No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.
