culture - Donna Mayhew

Favourite movie and why?
I have two!
1: White Nights. It was done with a small budget and has bad acting with some really horrific Russian accents. There is a lot of Russian spoken with no subtitles. The plot is very weak, and is a very typical 1980’s US interpretation of Soviet Russia… But it has incredible dance scenes and awesome 1980’s music. And it is truly a “one of a kind”. 2: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. A classic, timeless movie. Gorgeous actors, simple plot that wouldn’t come across as “innocent” now as it has been accepted here.

Favourite place you ever visited?
Two again. Vanuatu – There was a small island called “Hideaway Island” that was operated by the locals. Completely cut-off from the world with no “commercial influence” so very basic living. A fantastic reef to explore that is protected – so is just gorgeous. Amalfi Coast – Beautiful – the blue of the Mediterranean with the history of the area.

Donna, let's talk

The right amount of day-to-day challenge that motivates me and a very supportive team to work with.

Dirty Dancing, it’s a cult and it makes me dream every time I watch it (are there actually better movies than that?)

Khalil Younis
Favourite movie and why?
Guy Ritchie movies: in particular Lock Stock, snatch, RocknRolla, Revolver. Love a good story line with a lot of different characters that all ties in at the end, plus they have a really cool comedy element! If I have to pick one, probably the original Lock Stock & Two Smoking barrels but Snatch runs it extremely close!!

Best advice you’ve ever been given:
“Learn something about everything and everything about something”.

Favourite place you’ve ever visited:
Disney World with the family when I was a kid.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?

Lachlan Mcleod

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
After a hard week at work I really like to unwind and reset, I really enjoy relaxing Sundays fishing with my mates, watching the footy (NRL) and going for a walk or bike ride along the water front with my partner. I am also a family man, so I try to get up to the Central coast to see them as much as possible.

What’s the best advice you ever heard?
“Celebrate the small wins”. A phrase you will hear a lot in the recruitment industry, but I think it applies to your personal life as well. Its important to reflect and enjoy those small achievements that lead to the goals you have.

Favourite band growing up?
To be completely honest I didn’t really have just one, like most of my life I have a wide variety of interests which influences my taste in music. If I had to narrow it down to 1 though I would probably say… Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

specialisations Luke

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?
I remember reading somewhere about the enormous effect your clothing can have on your psychological state. I by no means like to see people judged on their appearance alone, but I love dressing for an occasion/meeting as if I’m putting on a costume.
For instance, I worked for a corporate recruitment agency, and being dressed in a matching suit set and heels would always make me feel confident and more competent when meeting with my clients. It sounds ridiculous but it can really work!

Favourite band growing up?
HOW CAN I POSSIBLY CHOOSE???
If I had to choose it would have to be The Cranberries – No Need to Argue.
I had a cassette that I would listen to as I went to sleep when I was really young and they’ve really shaped my musical taste and style throughout my life! I could still listen to that album every day all these years later.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be?
I have always wanted to be able to draw. I am totally in awe of anyone with creative/artistic talent and I’d love to be able to sketch/draw in my downtime.
