In this series we’re spotlighting a different MWM team member each month so you can get to know the team a little better.
Say hello to Practice Manager Gill Duffy…
“The key to MWM Advisory’s appeal is its drive to find the best way to look after its clients’ needs and its focus on skilling up its people so they can deliver on this vision. It is crafting a unique offering to become the experts in being just a little bit different and I am delighted to be a part of it.”
Tell us a bit about your role Gill?
At our annual strategic planning meeting, MWM shares its plan for the next 1 to 5 years. My role involves doing what is required to assist the directors and the team in achieving that plan.
This includes recruiting new team members and settling them in, monitoring financial performance to ensure we are still on track, and looking at how we can be smarter with technology and stay up-to-date on professional development so we can deliver a great service to our clients.
What about when you’re not at work – what are your hobbies and interests?
At the weekend you can usually find me bush walking. We have so many great trails just an hour or so away.
I love to travel and seek out a trekking destination, while tacking a relaxing holiday on the end. In the last 12 months I have conquered Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and walked 300km of the Camino in Spain.
I listen to a lot of audio books ranging from crime to science fiction as I commute from Brisbane each day (thankfully I also enjoy driving!). When I catch up with any of my grown up children it usually involves food and socialising, as we all love to eat.
Gill, what’s the best part about working at MWM?
MWM is job number 13 for me so I have a lot to compare it with. I was attracted by the vitality of the directors at MWM who dare to be different.
They are open to new ideas and ways of working and are not chasing the cookie cutter accounting firm dream.
Most importantly I am working with a team of amazing people who are committed to the success of MWM, will allow me to be myself and don’t mind me bursting into song now and then!
