How long have you lived in Canowindra and what do you like about living here?
I have lived in Canowindra for five years. It is very quiet, although sometimes a little too quiet, but I am close to my two grandchildren. They make my day, every day.
What did you enjoy about your job and what are your plans now that you are stepping down as publisher?
I have been the publisher of the Phoenix Group of Newspapers for four years, and have really enjoyed the weekly challenges. I love meeting the business people and learning more about their business. I plan to do a lot of travelling, and will be available for businesses and big media clients for consul- tancy initiatives.
What do you do to unwind after work and on weekends?
I do a lot of reading, and love my garden.
What are you really good at?
I believe that one of my strengths is my sales ability – this still continues to give me a buzz.
What is your pet hate?
People who do not respond to emails and phone calls.
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
I have had a lot of exciting holidays, al- though some of my best holidays would include, time in Italy at Easter with my two girls and a wildlife game drive north of Dur- ban in South Africa. I am looking forward to my holiday this year to Italy, Spain, Portu- gal and London.
