Outside of Nous

As an organisational development specialist, Sally designed and coordinated organisation-wide culture and engagement activities. This included the ongoing success of a graduate program – including recruitment, selection and placement of graduates – and an annual organisation-wide employee engagement survey, including communications, data analysis and results distribution.

Prior to joining Nous, Sally completed her business honours studies exploring the decline of rural Australia due to the selective service withdrawal of banks and building societies and the response of the people and communities affected. This research fueled Sally’s passionate for regional development and planning.

In her spare time...

Sally enjoys getting active and being outdoors. She loves spending time outside of the city and running her small grain-cropping farm on the Darling Downs.
