Volunteer Profile – Lynne Edwards
When did you commence with Good360?
What is your role at Good360?
I’m part of the Marketing and Communications team. My main responsibilities include Google AdWords development, analysis and optimizing and newsletter content development. Most recently I was helping set up the Shoes of Prey fundraising sale – I’ve never seen so many amazing shoes in my life!
Where do you call home?
Tell us a bit more about yourself!
I am originally from Cheshire in the N.W. of England but I have been in Sydney for over 20 years. I studied business at Birmingham University and worked for an international student organisation in London before getting an internship in Sydney and deciding to stay permanently in Oz.
What roles/jobs have you undertaken and for what organisations/industries?
I have worked in marketing management roles for a broad range of businesses, including banking, sales’ coaching, and a community training college, plus most recently in business to business software. I have experienced working for large and small companies, Australian owned and international, one with HQ in Helsinki, Finland and another in Portland Oregon, USA – both provided the opportunity to travel for conferences.
What are your passions? What are your interests? What do you consider your main achievements in life so far?
Apart from supporting family, my greatest passion is caring for our doggie – a beautiful strawberry blond Spoodle called Chloe, she is 14 years old and although almost 100% blind and deaf, she is still a cute, happy little soul.
I’m a subscriber to the Sydney Theatre Company and member of a great book club and try to stay healthy through Yoga, Pilates and swimming.
Main achievements: Completing two university degrees and varied travelling adventures, as well as establishing myself in Sydney with a lovely group of good friends. Finally buying a home in Sydney (!) and celebrating 17 years married to my soulmate.
I’m very happy to have found Good360 to support through voluntary, to help less fortunate people, save waste and to maintain my marketing and communication skills, whilst searching for my next full-time career move.
