Tell us about yourself
I came to Honan because I wanted to try something completely new. I’d been working ‘in house’ for a long time and I was drawn to this role because of the opportunity for a challenge.Outside of work, I love spending time with my kids. I’m a fan of yoga and swimming. I’m also a bit of a geek and I’ve been known to read legal textbooks in my free time! My office is full of textbooks brimming with notes!

The Financial Services Royal Commission brought home the importance of businesses meeting community expectations. We are seeing more of a focus on the importance of corporate culture for effective risk management. I’m hopeful we’ll see more and more businesses reward the right values and behaviours in line with what the community expects and really ‘walk the talk’.
