☝️ The view from my office off the headland where my house is.
What changed in your approach to your role since you joined Touchcast?
The Touchcast business model of building remote workspaces across the world made me understand the power of technology and how it can allow each person to facilitate their work from anywhere. My work day is very structured and my output has improved greatly from working remotely.
What part of your childhood relates to your work at Touchcast?
Growing up in a family run business, I was constantly surrounded by hard working team members. Being welcomed into the Touchcast community I felt completely comfortable and at home even though I’ve never met my work colleagues for Friday afternoon beers!
What advice would you give to someone starting out in...(your role)?
Speak up! Everyone is very encouraging to hear about people’s experience and ideas to help take Touchcast to the next level. Ask lot’s of questions, everyone at Touchcast is more than happy to help anyone with questions get up to speed. Remember - there are never any wrong answers or bad ideas.
How do you make the most out of working remotely?
This is my first remote role and I love it! To make the most of working remotely, I’ve had to manage my time closely. With many events spanning across multiple time zones I can find myself, at times, starting my day early or finishing quite late. So I make an effort to take time for myself during the day which can include a dip in the ocean or even having a coffee at a cafe. Working remotely has given me the freedom to create my own structure to the work day ensuring I complete all my tasks, but take small breaks to allow my mind to focus efficiently. I don't waste time waiting for my lunch break or countdown the time to 5pm. I enjoy every day at Touchcast because it allows me to be my best productive self and feel excited about servicing our clients.
What is something outside of work you’re irrationally passionate about?
Formula One Racing - I have grown increasingly attached to this sport over the last couple of years. The Netflix series Drive to Survive got me hooked.
