Age – 37
Position – Marketing & Communications Co-ordinator
Time in role – Approximately 1 month.
What do you like most about your role and CDS? I genuinely feel like the job I do is making a difference to the organisation and everyone I have met has been fantastic and welcoming.
Why are you working in this industry? I have had some experience in a previous role and when this position came up I realised I still wanted to work in this industry. I get a buzz out of making a difference.
If you weren’t in this industry what would you be doing? Something in multi-media.
What is the greatest myth in this industry? That people with disabilities are of no use to anyone. That could not be any further from the truth. Like me and you, they can work and they are capable of anything if you go about it the right way and empower them.
If you were CEO for a day what would you change first? I think the changes that need to get made are getting made. Peter has done a great job in trying circumstances transitioning us and Jeff has run with it and now we are starting to see some results. I think the biggest change both men have implemented is a positive culture change
