Head of Product - Belong
I’ve been at Telstra for a number of years now, I started as a Product Manager and I’m currently the Head of Product & Marketing at Belong. In my time at Telstra, I’ve had the opportunity to grow and develop my career and now landed my dream role, whilst working with some truly outstanding people. Outside of work, I collect/hoard houseplants, love my 2 dogs and love to ski.
 

  • A look at the opportunity and inclusion you’ll experience at Telstra

    As a proud Indigenous LGBTI+ man who has worked across several Telstra teams over the past nine years, I feel lucky to be working in a space I’m genuinely passionate about - diversity and inclusion. 

    Why? Because I have such a personal connection to it. I am heavily involved in various D&I initiatives - I sit on our Spectrum council, which is for our LGBTI+ network and I work across all aspects of Indigenous employment.
     

  • Going agile: why it’s helped my team to grow

    For my commercial marketing team here at Telstra, agile working has become an incredibly important part of our daily working lives.
     
    Agility has improved our workflow, increased the quality of our output and enabled us to better understand and deliver on our customers’ needs.
     

  • How I foster team connection as a leader in the digital age

    As more of us work from home, or even just in different locations from our co-workers, leaders need to continuously evolve and lead in a different way.
     
    Although we have amazing virtual connectivity tools available to us here at Telstra, as a leader I’ve learned that it requires a truly conscious effort on my part to ensure that my remote teams remain engaged.
     

  • Three behaviours all great leaders possess

    In my time at Telstra, I have worked closely with several leaders who have had an enormous influence on the company culture. They’ve made complex things simple to understand and helped me find my courage by showing that they care.
     

  • What does the future hold for voice-based communication?

    We have reached ‘peak telephony’ in the developed world – people are using less traditional voice and SMS and more data-driven messaging applications, a trend that began in 2015.
