Hi, I'm Sean

I’d say I’m driven by achievement and progress. I’m quite a tactile, tangible person. I like to see hard work resulting in outcomes – the good you do being observed in other people. I hate coming home from a day’s work not knowing what was achieved.
Before Plan Partners, I worked in car and home insurance claims integrating supply chains that involved a lot of travel to places like Taiwan, India and the US trying to repair cars better and cheaper. Those days of travel feel like centuries ago now.
My favourite moment working with Plan Partners involved a presentation we did to McMillan Shakespeare Group. We wanted to truly convey what we do at Plan Partners and why we do it. Rather than present through the typical, sterile channels of PowerPoint, we asked a customer to come along and tell her story. At age 16, Anj was beaten within a millimetre of her death. Previously, a star netball player and overall high sports achiever, Anj was left with permanent physical and mental injuries, yet cognitively still bright as a button. When she finished telling her story, there wasn’t a dry eye left in the room. Anj, and customers like her, are our why; the reason we do what we do - and everyone at McMillan Shakespeare Group could very quickly understand that.
My advice to someone starting their NDIS journey?
Be ambitious. Set goals for yourself, for your life and what you want to achieve. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and support so you can chase those ambitions.
Top of the bucket list?
I’ve never really had one to be honest. I love wineries, going to the Barossa Valley. I always wanted a farm, but my wife wanted a beach house… and she won.
