5 minutes with Seb

ON-Q’s Quality Manager, who has been with ON-Q for 7 years

Tell us about your role at ON-Q and how you ended up here?

I work at ON-Q as a Quality Manager.  It’s a varied job but the basic purpose of my role is to make sure we deliver a service of excellent quality to our clients. I help to develop work methods and systems, seek feedback from our clients and staff about how we can improve them, and conduct audits to check that we are delivering services in the ways we said we would.

What do you love about where you live?

Being close to the ocean in particular; living in an open-minded, diverse community of people.

What do you love about where you work?

I feel that at ON-Q I can do my bit to address some of the inequities of this world, by helping disadvantaged people in our community gain employment, and through that achieve whatever they aspire to.

When not at work, you can find me …

Reading a book in the hammock, or windsurfing if it’s windy, out at a movie, or travelling overseas (when I’ve got time off)

Kind of music you like listening to?

A big mixture: from Drum & Bass, to trance/techno from the 1990’s, to classical when I need to chill out.  I’ve been listening a lot lately to groups like Odesza and London Grammar.

How do you recharge?

Surfing, windsurfing, being in the thick of nature – I’ve got to be connected with the non-human world in order to recharge.

What characteristic do you most admire in others?

Integrity, standing up for what you value and living your life accordingly.

What would a "perfect" day look like for you?

At the risk of sounding repetitive ….

  • Starting the day with a surf,
  • going to the farmers market to buy some veggies and listen to music,
  • then read a magazine in the hammock…  
  • then a lavish picnic overlooking the ocean,
  • then all afternoon windsurfing,
  • then out for dinner and a movie.

 That sounds pretty good to me.
