Describe what you do: I’m a director at Positive Good, an integrated cleantech marketing agency that works exclusively with renewables and cleantech companies. Some of our clients include sonnen, GreenSync, SwitchDin, S-5!, HIP V HYPE, NEXTracker and the Australian Energy Storage Alliance.
How do you like your coffee: In the mornings, two double espresso in a row.
Device(s) you use: My trusty MacBook Air 13″, a Telstra Netgear Nighthawk for a truly reliable 5G connection, iPhone XS, iPad Pro that is attached to a Brydge wireless keyboard for working on the fly and my Jabra Elite 75t for conference calls and music.
Describe your working style in one sentence: 6am start to scan news headlines so I can flag key issues of the day to clients. I like to schedule client calls around 10am-2pm and in between its strategy, writing and emails. If I need really focused work time, I block time in my diary for a specific activity and treat it like an important appointment. Work ends at 5pm with my first glass of wine.
What does your workspace look like: Pre COVID-19, it would be in a cafe on some mornings. For now, I’ve been working from home on a height adjustable coffee/dining table with views of the park in my living room that is flooded with lots of natural light.
I have a trusty notebook to take notes and post-its to scribble to do’s and reminders to myself. I have a resistance band on my desk to remind me to stretch during the day and a Theragun liv to get a deep massage for muscle soreness.
Do you have a favourite playlist for work: I’m currently listening to the REC CLUB MIXTAPE 2 on Spotify. I train at the Paramount Recreation Club and they make a mean playlist.
Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My bestie, Dr. Joel Fredericks who is an academic at the University of Sydney.
