When did you know you wanted this job?
My big career lightbulb to expand my career from Risk Management into Resilience, came from my first-hand experience in the 2011 Brisbane Floods. Working in both the community and with organizations to clean up and subsequently recover lit a fire for preparedness and resilience.
What is the biggest risk that you’ve taken?
There is no shortage of risk in co-founding a resilience focused technology business. Moving out of the very stable world of consulting into technology has been by far the greatest risk I’ve ever taken, but is also providing the most rewards with regards to professional and personal growth.
What did you do at work yesterday?
I was on a 5am flight to Sydney. Started my first conference call before reaching the office. Had the pleasure of working with three major organizations in the US, South Africa and New Zealand on their microsimulation programs. Got to reunite in person with team members who work and operate in a different state.
What is the best career advice you’ve ever received?
Be conscious of your weaknesses, but lean into your strengths.
What impresses you the most when you are considering hiring someone?
Their attitude and passion to grow.
How do you, your team or company define success?
Our success is largely tied to our client’s success. Supporting resilience practitioners in increasing engagement across their organizations is one of the key metrics we use to measure both our, and their success.
