Pao

Communicator. Educator. Aspiring Economist.

I am a 37-year-old communications and strategy practitioner with over 15 years of industry experience in the private and non-profit sectors. I enjoy seizing challenging opportunities for the company to grow through strategic and execution excellence, bringing an exciting blend of creativity, rigour, and curiosity to solve problems and seize opportunities. Getting even the most difficult things done and seeing teams succeed gives me a great sense of purpose as a leader.

I am a “full-stack” strategy and integrated marketing talent with a particular interest in driving growth in all dimensions. I also teach economics, corporate planning and philosophy while completing my doctorate in economics.
