What does Winnie the Pooh have to do with my 10 years at Banna Property Group?


Words cannot express the amazing experience of growth and achievement I’ve had with Banna Property Group over the last 10 years. After starting with a team of 2 people, to a ‘family’ of 15, I could not have imagined that what started out as a property development role, slowly morphed into a leadership journey learning about the impact of drivers vs expressives, strengthfinders, 3in3s, UNO games, circumplexes, and emotional intelligence.

With a heavy heart, I now leave a business that has built momentum and on the verge of becoming a Jim Collins-esque ‘Good-to-Great’ company. It is not only a company that embodies teamwork in its truest sense, but also one that believes in an unwavering care for its members as if it were a family unit. The best part is that the team has had so much fun along the way whilst fulfilling its goals (see the photo of my desk wrapped in tin foil to celebrate my 10 years at the company).

I enter the next chapter of my career in pursuit of a new challenge, and take with me an open mind (and heart), and trust that my experience at Banna can add immense value to the teams I work with in future.

I would like to thank all at Banna, and especially Brad Chan and the Chan Family who gave me that opportunity in 2007 to assist in building the foundation of what the company is today. To honour Brad’s favourite pastime of quoting great minds, I would like to sign off with the words of A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh…

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
