Dear Lottery Colleagues
Traditionally we represent an industry protected by
monopolies and regulations. Comfortable working conditions in a stable
environment. However, as we have all experienced, technology and changing
consumer preferences have made substantial changes to our frame conditions.
A wise chinese saying goes like this: "When the winds of
change are blowing, many seek shelter, but there are those who build
Our changing environment is offering a lot of new
opportunities to our industry, if we have the capability to exploit these
changes. Several studies have been made recently on the most important factors
contributing to the growth in the wealth and prosperity of nations. These
studies point in one direction: the single most important factor is not
education nor production capacity, but the ability to change!
Sometimes we need to get away from everyday trivialities,
getting the challenges and opportunities into perspective and concentrate our
minds on the long lines into the future.
Under the theme "The knowledge to lead. The vision to
prosper", South Australian Lotteries are giving us the perfect opportunity to
trigger inspiring processes directed towards the future.
The scene will be set in a beautiful city on the south
shores of the Australian continent, welcoming the lottery industry for the 2002
WLA congress in Adelaide.
For those of you who have not had the pleasure in visiting
this charming city, you will indeed find it a tranquil, yet stimulating
environment, tailor made to sharpen your perspective, providing the ideal
backdrop for an excellent professional program, social events, and the slate of
informal meetings to be staged here.
Welcome to the process of building windmills of change, for
a sustainable future of our industry. See you in beautiful Adelaide in
Reidar Nordby JR.
President, World Lottery
