Getting to know - Natasha, our Board Member

What do you do for work?

I have been a general board member since April 2007. My daytime job is a business relationship manager for Commonwealth Bank. I look after a portfolio of Business Customers.

Who would you like most to have dinner with (alive or dead) and why?

Gail Kelly, as a woman of influence in Australia, to understand how to overcome the pressured facing a female at CEO level and how to have pressure and command the attention of a room full of people.

What is your favourite quote?

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans (John Lennon)

Having and raising a family.

What is your favourite holiday destination?

Any resort with tropical weather, a massive swimming pool and amazing day spa. (Oh and a kids club)

What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?

I was always in everything. If there was a picnic on the floor I would run through the middle, if there was papers on a table I would mess them up, if there was a private conversation to be hard I would be eaves dropping, and adding my two cents worth in.

Getting to know - Faye, our Deputy Chairperson

What do you do for work?

I am currently working at Main Roads in a HR Management role, specialising in Industrial and Employee Relations, Diversity, Health and Safety and Talent Management. I am the Deputy Chairperson at the Spiers Centre and living in the northern suburbs most my life, I am really passionate about making a positive difference in my community.

Who would you like most to have dinner with (alive or dead) and why?

There are a few, but I would love to have dinner with Stevie Wonder (and hopefully he can serenade me after dinner) or Robin Williams as he seemed like such a warm, funny and genuine guy.

What is your favourite quote?

To be outstanding – get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

What would you say is the biggest project that you have ever accomplished?

Having a family and juggling a career whilst renovating a house. You don’t get much more hectic than that!

What is your favourite holiday destination?

I am a New Zealand fan. Although I am not the most adventurous person, I am a bit fan of Sauvignon Blanc and having a wine in the middle of Queenstown is probably the closest you can get to perfection.

What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?

What didn’t I do… I was always up to no good but luckily I always had remorse and could admit when I was in the wrong. It took me a while to get over the rebellious teen years but once I did, I settled down pretty quickly.
