to work with and build on. Iron­i­cally some of the sub­jects I least en­joyed have been some of the most use­ful; sta­tis­tics and ac­count­ing for ex­am­ple.

I think a sense of hu­mour, to­gether with a sense of be­ing cen­tred and know­ing that you are do­ing the very best you can ev­ery day, re­ally helps con­quer th­ese pe­ri­ods with steep curves’ learn­ing

There are so many things I love about my job. I love the op­por­tu­nity to be touch­ing dif­fer­ent parts of the world ev­ery day, and to pro­mote in­cred­i­ble life en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. I love the op­por­tu­nity to work with pas­sion­ate peo­ple and to pro­vide ex­pe­ri­ences and frame­works at work to help them reach their full po­ten­tial. I love the chal­lenge of cre­at­ing and shap­ing what we do ev­ery day to keep up with mov­ing trends and de­mands. And I re­ally en­joy the think­ing that goes into mak­ing work and pro­cesses flow seam­lessly and ef­fi­ciently. One of the great­est chal­lenges has also been one of the most ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments, as I guess is of­ten the case. Win­ning the op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent Brand USA in Aus­tralia and New Zealand was an in­cred­i­ble hon­our and I am grate­ful for that ev­ery day. I think be­ing brave enough to have a go and back my­self and my team. I know that we are pas­sion­ate, cre­ative, smart and hard work­ing. I give us per­mis­sion to be un­at­tached to the out­come, as long as we know that we’ve sin­cerely given things our very best shot. I have been in­spired by many. I’ve never had a for­mal men­tor, but one of my bosses played a very big role in in­spir­ing me to do what I do now. Over the past few years, I’ve also en­gaged coaches who have been amaz­ing at help­ing me nav­i­gate this grow­ing busi­ness and fo­cus on what’s im­por­tant. Pas­sion­ate, en­gaged peo­ple. Fo­cused sys­tems. Strong stake­holder re­la­tion­ships. Have fun! Be nice. Think holis­ti­cally.
