Print article

Did anything good come out of 2021?

Sport continues to play a significant role in people’s lives; whether it’s playing, volunteering, or watching. Sport has definitely brought people together during this challenging period throughout the world. The Olympics in Tokyo was a highlight for me and showed the power of sport.

What’s your favourite summer memory?

Beach cricket and BBQ’s

Are you a summer or a winter person?

Definitely summer

How do you stay resilient during periods of change, like the year just gone?

Regular exercise and having a positive, optimistic attitude with a passion for doing something good every day.

Who were your heroes of 2021?

Frontline health workers and first responders. They put others before themselves every day.

What’s your secret ambition?

100 metre finalist at the Olympics in Brisbane (I’ll be 60 then so that might rule me out!)

What’s your favourite holiday spot?

Anywhere near the beach. We holidayed with family and friends at Hamilton Island recently. Weather was perfect. A wonderful place to unwind.

What are you hoping for in 2022?

A greater spirit of co-operation, patience, and optimism throughout communities once we rid ourselves of this brutal pandemic.

What have you been watching on television/streaming services lately?

Like many people, I’ve loved watching Ted Lasso. And I’ve also just started watching the second series of Morning Wars on Apple TV. Reece Witherspoon is brilliant in playing the role of Bradley Jackson.

Any people or businesses to watch in 2022?

I admire start-up businesses and particularly those people these businesses attract. They are creative, innovative, have a can-do mindset and are action-oriented. There are numerous companies in the fin-tech space which are emerging, focused specifically on making the lives of consumers easier and more efficient. Innovation in the technology space will be the sector that will continue to make the biggest strides in 2022 and all organisations can benefit from this breakthrough thinking.
