#HumansofMEA - Josh Clark, ICC Sydney
#HumansofMEA asked Josh Clark, ICT Solutions Delivery Specialist (Aka guys who makes stuff work) at the International Convention Centre Sydney a number of questions and here are Josh’s responses:
1. Josh, what strengths do you bring to the events industry?
I’m a people person through and through – and I also love technology. Being able to translate tech speak to relatable information and solve complex issues – that’s my forte.
2. It is 5 pm on a Friday Josh – what is in your glass?
3. If you had a super power what would it be?
I’d be the Flash. My mind works on overdrive which shows in everything I do, from speaking really fast to walking quicker than most. I was referenced as the Energiser Bunny in my wedding vows, if that’s any indication.
4. If you could work anywhere in the world Josh, where would it be and why?
I’d love to work at NASA as a Launch Director.
5. Josh, can we ask how do you like your eggs?
Fried, with bacon, on fresh white bread with tomato sauce.
6. Name one thing that makes a great meeting stand out Josh and why?
One of my most enjoyable meetings ever (a recurring finance meeting) always started with a quote on the slideshow and a small conversation. It really set the tone and made the meetings much more engaging.
7. What is a skill no one would know you had Josh?
I can recite almost every line from Brooklyn Nine Nine’s first 5 seasons.
8. What do you like the most about working in the events industry?
For me it’s about creating experiences and memories that people will treasure. Think back to your favourite concert. You won’t remember the name of anyone but the artist – though you’ll remember the amazing time you had. For me, being able to play a part in creating memories like this behind the scenes for millions of people is something that drives me every day.
9. Josh, where is your favourite holiday destination and what activity did you spend most of the time doing?
Hawaii by far has been my favourite holiday destination. Equal parts shopping and relaxing makes it the perfect getaway.
10. What is the current TV series you are watching Josh?
I’ve just restarted watching Arrow on Netflix. I stopped watching in S3 and there’s been 5 seasons since, so I started from scratch in the hopes of catching up by the new year.
11. Josh, we would like to you where would we find you on the weekend?
I would be at one of three places
- Catching up with Family and Friends
- Shopping at Ikea
- Being a professional Gamer on my PC
Thank you Josh for being part of #HumansofMEA!
