Hello guys! Welcome to the pilot episode of my brand new podcast #TRYEVERYTHING! In this pilot episode my producer Danny thought it would be a good idea to give a personal background – WHICH IS LIKE A RESUME OF ALL MY ATTEMPTS AT TRYING BTW - as well as what this show aims to achieve. It was nerve-wracking since it is my first time being in a studio and recording a podcast but hey that’s what the show is about isn’t it? Hope you enjoy!

· My background and the many roles that I am currently involved in [2:36]

· How I started my career in the recruiting industry [4:04]

· Why I left my first job, and how I got into the banking industry while chilling on the beaches of Melbourne [6:37]

· What I learned about working in a bank and how to manage changes and opportunities [9:43]

· How my past experience served as a foundation for my current roles advising HR practices [12:34]

· How my sister’s death changed my world completely [13:25]

· Why you need to set your own metrics for success [19:23]

· My interpretation of the spirit of trying [22:48]
