What is the most important personal attribute that you bring to your job?
I have an unabashed passion to work creatively for a sustainable world for all our children and their children and all the other creatures in it. Perhaps surprising but nevertheless true, I see this possible in programs like the NSW Environment Protection Authority’s business waste program called ‘Bin Trim’.
It’s all about how we manage ‘stuff’ in business and our normal lives!
What is your favourite sport to watch?
The answer is simple for me – it’s Aussie Rules because, while important changes have occurred over the years, as a game it still maintains the essential elements of being an enjoyable spectacle.
What are you going to do when you retire?
So, I had to check the dictionary to find what this word ‘retire’ really means! This research then gave rise to the question for me of should we ever do so for there are so many things we can all do to make for a sustainable world.
