Kerry Washington is speaking at the conference next week. What do you think has been the biggest scandal so far in this decade?
Well in terms of Australia, there’s been quite a few ‘scandals’.
A Pulitzer-winning reporter is writing an in-depth piece – about you. What are the three questions you really hope she doesn’t ask you?
Well, first and foremost, I wouldn’t want to be asked about any type of politics… especially foreign politics. I loathe politics, and most certainly don’t like talking about our own country’s political climate, let alone any other countries.
What do you love most about yourself? What do you love most about your favorite person? Are the two connected?
I don’t do these kind of questions. I’m not the type of person to sit here and talk about how awesome I am.
I can’t. I just… I can’t. I have far too many issues.
If I had to pick just one thing about myself that I love, then I’d have to say that I love the fact that I have become an elite person in my industry. I work my arse off for what I do, and the passion for what I do flows through my veins. In my specific field, there is only a team of about 10 of us, and I would have to say, without being arrogant, I would be the most passionate and dedicated out of our team. I may not be the one in charge, and I may not be the most senior person on the team, but I would be the most passionate about what I do.
My favourite person, my partner, is the same as I am. He is what he does. Although he has a different field to what I do, his passion and dedication is immeasurable. He lives, eats, breathes it, and wants more out of it – just like I do. And I want him to want more, and I want him to achieve more. However, unfortunately it’s not so much an industry that recognises talent, as it is an industry based on politics and arse-kissing.
Being that we both work in the same industry for the same organisation, of course there is a natural connection between the two – not just between what we do, but also between the two of us. It’s what led us to meet in the first place.
And the rest, they say, is history.
NB: Sidenote, if I was able to have a different one, I’d pick my sense of humour, as that’s something that uniquely identifies me, but it has no connection to my favourite person, because he usually doesn’t share my humour, or even understand my references.
