I’ve been a member of AuSAE since…

2008 when I first received a copy of Third Sector magazine.

The most valuable thing about my AuSAE membership is…

Belonging to a professional group.

Before I was an association executive I was…

A British Army Officer working in over 30 countries and seeing active service in the Balkans, South Africa and Northern Ireland; then an Australian Army Officer seeing active service in East Timor.

I followed this with a spell in the corporate world with Vodafone and a web development company, before getting the opportunity to run Surf Life Saving at Sydney Northern Beaches.

If I wasn’t an association executive I would be…

An artist, if only I could paint; or a philosopher, if only I could write.

The thing that gets me out of bed every morning is…

My darling wife with a cup of tea.

My career highlight would have to be…

Graduating from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and coming home from active service.

I love working in this sector because…

Of the people who work in it.

The trouble with some associations is…

The members! (Whoops, should I have said that?)

As a manager it’s important to…

Understand the difference between management and leadership.

The relationship between CEO and board is…

A patient one with a voluntary board.

I am inspired by…

Nature, art and philosophy.

When I am not working you can find me…

At the beach in the surf.
