    S5, Ep 37 - Oana Aristide: The Accidental Hotelier

    S5, Ep 37 - Oana Aristide: The Accidental Hotelier

    Today, I am bringing you a story that is unfolding on a small Greek island - SYROS, where author and economist Oana Aristide has renovated a run-down, neo-classical villa into a jewel box of a hotel of just 9 suites, called Hotel Aristide.

    Oana’s personal story is a dramatic one. She grew up in Soviet-occupied Romania in her grandmother’s care, when her parents and sister defected - without her - to Sweden. She trained formally as an economist, a role which took her into the halls of presidential power in Bucharest, before a career in economic advisory in London and Europe. On any reckoning, in economics Oana had built the foundation of a solid professional career.

    But she was busy after hours as well, writing and editing a first novel, Under the Blue, which, with some prescience, describes an epic road journey during a devastating global pandemic, brought on by the unanticipated effects of climate change. This is a classic Unpaused episode; enjoy.

    S5, Ep 36 - Nicolette Rubinsztein: Not Guilty! Strategically Juggling Work & Home

    S5, Ep 36 - Nicolette Rubinsztein: Not Guilty! Strategically Juggling Work & Home

    Becoming a mother heralds a dramatic change in the lives of Australian women. New mothers go from spending a weekly average of two hours caring for others to a staggering 51 hours. And when women become mothers, they also increase the time they spend on housework, like cooking, cleaning and washing, leaping from a weekly average of 16 hours to 25 hours in not much more than the blink of an eye. Statistics like these bring the whole issue of gender equality into a new realm. 

    Married with three daughters, Nicolette Rubinsztein (author of 'Not Guilty') has lived this conflict and come out the other end with a well-developed plan for how to smooth the way to a happier and fairer household for the working mother. Having led strategy for Colonial First State, the wealth management arm of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia for 12 years, during the first 2 years of which she also had her first baby, Nicolette knows more than most about thinking her way out of a problem. Despite reducing her hours to become part time, she managed to retain her rank and position as one of Colonial's general managers and go on to have two more children as well. How did she do it?

    S5, Ep 35 - Judy and Annabelle Hickson Live in Conversation

    S5, Ep 35 - Judy and Annabelle Hickson Live in Conversation

    In our first episode of Season 5 I’m doing something different: interviewing Annabelle Hickson and recording it before a live audience at ‘Bertholme’, a heritage-listed, 19th century sandstone house on the outskirts of Brisbane’s CBD. Annabelle is here to promote her brand new publication GALAH magazine, which of course, is not her first foray into the world of publishing and the printed word, but definitely her most ambitious.

    Annabelle’s story is the ultimate Unpause and this chat is a timely follow up from my first interview with her (Ep 11) which took place during a time of professional uncertainty for her. That time of questioning her place in the working world has certainly now paid off as she forges her way in her new role as Magazine Editor-in-Chief (and writer and designer and distributor and funder!)

    S4, Ep 34 - Mia Feasey: From coffee cart queen to Australian Woman in Design 2020... How did Mia do it?

    S4, Ep 34 - Mia Feasey: From coffee cart queen to Australian Woman in Design 2020... How did Mia do it?

    Ex Asian Spice Girl (yes, this band really existed) turned founder of feted interior design firm SIREN, Mia Feasey has a dazzling Unpaused story to tell. Arriving in Australia from the UK with no friends, no contacts and just £1000  in her pocket, Feasey worked 6 jobs, joining the local lacrosse team when loneliness began to tell. Little did she know how that single step would open career doors and enlarge her world. Fast forward to today - Mia won the Women in Design Award in 2020 and leads a dynamic team of mostly women in offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Singapore, designing workspaces for the likes of Google, Uber and KPMG. She champions the working mother and is very candid about how she managed her growing empire with two babies in the early days. On top of all this, she has a message for her industry that it's not ok to trash the last fit-out without a backward glance to the environmental consequences. In a world of lookalikes, Mia is the modern professional woman with a head and heart beating to a new ethos of creative freedom and collaboration all the while recognising that we are all human, yes? It's a great story.
