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

What excites you about being at Technology People?
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?)

Miles Austin-Raffan

What are your guilty pleasures?
Pork belly, chicken wings, rib-eye (done Chicago style only with green peppercorn sauce) and Lindt balls with a glass of cold milk.

Favourite band growing up?
I liked all of the cheesy boy bands – Take That and Boyzone. I remember having the day off school when Shane Lynch got married I was so devastated. I then moved on to Enrique Iglesias who I still love to this day.

Who inspires you?
My Mum has been one of the most inspirational people in my life. Outside of that, I really admire self-made Entrepreneurs like Richard Branson – he has built up his empire through innovation and hard work with modesty and charisma.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love socialising with friends, mixing music, Salsa Dancing Playing tennis and going to the gym.

What excites you about being at Technology People?
I admire Technology People in their ability to bring a variety of people together and maintain life-long relationships, and I can’t wait to become more involved in this supportive community.

If you could go anywhere, where would your next holiday be?
This is a tricky one because I love so many different environments and there are so many places I haven’t been to! But probably South America as I’d love to explore the mountains of Peru like Machu Picchu. South America also calls to me for my love of tequila so that’s another factor!

Favourite movie and why?
A Knight’s Tale. My brothers and I watched this so many times when we were growing up and still find ourselves quoting it today! I’m happy to sit down anytime and reminisce my love for it – and of course, watching Heath Ledger for two hours isn’t bad!

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!!

What excites you about being at Technology People?
Opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone whilst playing to your individual strengths.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
Sydney, Australia right?! That’s why I moved here. If I wanted to live anywhere else I would go…

Favourite band growing up?
Don’t have one! Favourite artists include Nas and Chris Brown.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
To master the art of Parkour. I love physical activity whether it is playing basketball or training at the gym and enjoy playing console games like Assassin’s Creed in my spare time. The combination of athleticism and freedom is found within this game, with the main concept being Parkour. Constantly overcoming barriers and displaying what the human body can achieve.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Listening to music, writing poetry, transforming my body in the gym, socialising with friends and family.

Trevor, let's talk
specialisations Luke

Favourite place you ever visited?
Georgia (the country), for its snowy mountains, pristine diving, and the modern vs ancient wine region (tastes like flavoured vinegar even with their barefoot bathtub stopping efforts). Georgians are incredibly hospitable, they will invite you into their home for a family feast, you might need to squeeze past the backyard cows, pigs, and every other four-legged farm animal but I promise flavoured vinegar has never tasted so good! In the sulphur-rich water baths you surrender to a birthday suit scrub and wonder how you have made it this far in life without it! Also, English and tourists are hard to find 😊

Who inspires you? What’s the best advice you ever heard?
Richard Branson – an incredible leader.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” -Benjamin Franklin

Favourite band growing up?
Foo Fighters
