Implementing a new business model in conjunction with the multidisciplinary and management team to ensure outcomes are in line with the strategic direction of the centre and Mater Health Services.
What are the things you enjoy most about your job?
An area in which you have needed assistance:
Strategic planning in the 'Mater' way - every organisation is unique and has its own idiosyncrasies... in that regard, the Mater is no different.
