What are three career lessons you’ve learned thus far?
1. The importance of discipline.
2. To maintain perseverance and not give up – it is so important to keep following up when trying to make your targets. You cannot allow things to interfere with what you are trying to achieve.
3. The importance of integrity and gaining the trust of your peers. It is vital to make sure you do everything you set out to do and have promised to do.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
I could not live without my phone charger. Like most people these days, my phone is my connection point both on a personal level and professionally so it’s important that it is always charged! I have four chargers – one in my office, one in the car, one at home and one to travel with.

How are you lucky and why?
I am extremely lucky to have three fantastic children and an amazing family, both in Australia and in England. In a professional sense, I am very fortunate to have met through my working life a wide range of people in Sydney and Melbourne.

Where’s your favourite place in the world?
My favourite place in the world is Scotland. It’s such a beautiful and magical country.
