71 world beaters JANINE ALLIS OCCUPATION: MANAGING DIRECTOR OF BOOST JUICE. BEST KNOW FOR Setting up largest juice chain in Australia Janine Allis opened the first Boost Juice Bar in Adelaide in 2000. The idea came from a holiday in the United States where she noticed the proliferation of juice outlets. Boost Juice is now the largest and fastest-growing juice and smoothie chain in the Southern Hemisphere and has more than 200 stores in Asia, Europe and the Middle East through franchises. A recent deal with Nestlé UK will facilitate the growth of Boost Juice's 'Ready to Drink' products throughout the UK. The menu offers more than 20 juices, smoothies and crushes developed with the assistance of a nutritionist, and all are at least 98 percent fat free. ❝ I do not think that there is a difference between women or men in business, so my advice is the same: know your business inside and out; make sure you do your own accounts in the early days so that you know how your business ticks; hire only exceptional people and do not tolerate mediocrity in your team, yourself and your suppliers. Be a great listener, and do not let arrogance lead to failure. For women who have small children, get great support around you. We are not superwomen, so if you do try and be mother, wife, friend and business woman without help, you will struggle to do it all well and it will lead to disappointment. ❞ BUSINESS LARS RASMUSSEN OCCUPATION Computer scientist BEST KNOWN FOR Inventing Google Maps After Danish-born Lars Rasmussen lost his job in Silicon Valley during the tech wreck of 2002 he moved to Australia where he and his brother, Jens, founded mapping start-up company Where 2 Technologies. When the brothers sold the concept to Google in 2004, Lars joined Google, working as one of the engineers on the team that turned his concept into Google Maps. Lars enticed Jens to join him in Australia in 2007 and the brothers are now working on Google Wave, a new one-spot system combining email and instant messaging with document, maps, image and video-sharing. ❝ Ground-breaking technology and world- changing ideas can come from anywhere in the world and our best Australian thinkers realise that geography is no barrier to world-class achievement. The internet in particular puts the whole world at our finger tips and Australian universities are producing superb science and technology graduates. We're going to see a lot of very exciting things from the Australian technology industry in the next few years. ❞ ••• TECHNOLOGY
