He discusses what he likes most about his role and life in Brisbane.

My role within Brisbane Economic Development Agency involves:
Market research, insights and lead generation – further establishing and managing a broader customer insights framework to make decisions based on data. 

My favourite thing about my role is:
We work in the knowledge industry and the impact of our work reaches beyond the economic values – there are significant social and cultural benefits too. 

The greatest challenge of my work is:
The very nature of the business operates with several known-unknowns and unknown-knowns. A challenge is developing the most effective and efficient customer insights and lead generation strategies in a constantly evolving environment.

Brisbane makes an ideal business events destination because:
Quality of life in Brisbane is one of the best in the world – warm and friendly people, compact city, and most of the attractions are within a walkable distance of the city centre.

Brisbane is an exciting place to be right now because:
It is a transforming city, and that puts its community into a positive mindset on a growth trajectory. It is a rising star.  

I’m inspired by:
Generosity and warmth of people around me.

I couldn’t live without:
Going for a run along the Brisbane river. 

One of my favourite things to do in Brisbane is:
Cycling around the City and being perplexed with thousands of choices for brunch.  

I would spend my last $100 on:
Buy a bunch of eucalyptus seedlings and plant them for future koala generations.
