I read with interest your piece on Steve Vizard and his
relationship with See Life Differently (which is the self-conscious
full name for the advertising company to which you refer as See).
Vizard can occasionally be spotted swanning around in See’s trendy
bayside warehouse-conversion offices. I am unaware of whether or not he
has a direct financial stake in See, but See’s employees sometimes
refer to him as “the silent partner”.

Interestingly, See carried out
advertising work for the Victorian Major Events Corp while Vizard was
VMEC’s chairman. The work done was related to the 2007 World Swimming
Championships, and guess who was also chairman of Melbourne

2007 World Swimming Championships Corp at that time? Yep, it was Vizard.
