Question and Answer

How long have you worked at Weber Shandwick?

Time flies – it will be 16 years in 2018!

In five words or less, how would you describe your Weber Shandwick colleagues?

Really, really smart. Ahead of the game.

What is the best restaurant / your favorite meal in Sydney?

Pizza and a glass (or two) of red on a Thursday night at the local near the beach.

What is something people may not know about you?

Many years ago, before kids, I drove an old Land Rover from London to Capetown on the trip of a lifetime. It taught me so much.

What’s your passion outside of the workplace? What has it taught you that transfers to the office?

I love anything outdoors – snowboarding, surfing, running, big expeditions. Planning is critical, life must be balanced and to focus wholly on the task at hand.

What’s the coolest (or weirdest) place a project has taken you?

It's a bit of a stretch but I recently went snowboarding in Kashmir in the Himalayas in India. I came to know of the place through visiting and working with our India team. Our CEO, Val told me a couple of years back that I had to visit Gulmarg and the planning started from there.
