Why did you choose Flybits?
The way we bank in the future and the way we interact with our customers is all changing. I saw moving to Flybits as a pivotal move to future-proof my career, in the same way, Flybits is future-proofing our banking system. Here I can bring together my past experience as a client advisor at Deloitte, to help Flybits navigate the changing landscape of how business is done.

What brought you to HR?
My career hasn’t always been HR. I started off in sales, marketing, and then eventually found my way to the people side of the business. That’s what truly motivates me day in and day out. Through Flybits, I’m able to focus on people with an organizational lens and help shape its culture, health, and security, and ultimately ignite the heartbeat that helps scale the company while empowering its people.

We take a people-led approach to our organizational culture and design which is very much inspired by our employees.

Is Flybits doing something different? We take a people-led approach to our organizational culture and design which is very much inspired by our employees. We encourage employees to bring ideas forward, lead initiatives, and ultimately shape our culture and way forward.

What is your leadership philosophy?
Step back to listen. Learn from those that are around you. Find moments to advise and guide. Let people loose. Repeat.

Who inspires you?
I come from a background where my family worked both in health and business. I had a parent whose job was to focus on the wellbeing of people and another whose focus was on the wellbeing of an organization. Dinner table conversations were highly encouraged and heavily debated – a wonderful forum that inspired me to my career. This shaped how I think about the intersection of people and business, why I think focusing on these as a whole instead of its separate parts is critical, and ultimately why I wanted my career to be in this space.

What are you most passionate about?
While typically a very practical person, this also allows me to be passionate about living in the moment. I’ve never had a 5 year or 10-year plan. I find this puts me in a more positive space as each success and failure are merely just pivot points towards the next adventure
