5.45 AM

I am up and going to the gym for a morning session.

7.00 AM

Get back home and start getting ready for work. If I am working from home like I am today, I will take some time to look at my phone and relax in the morning (as I will most likely be in pyjamas from the waist down!). If I am heading to the office I need to be ready to leave by 8am to jump onto the train into the city.

9.00 AM

I make myself a cup of tea to start and then check my emails and Audit dashboard to see where my clients are at with their deliverables. Below is my work from home station.

This morning, I have a meeting to catch up with my team and then a client meeting to discuss progress and air out any questions on outstanding work. I spend the rest of the morning updating and creating work papers and adding/closing requests on the audit dashboard. I then have a Committee call for PRISM in the morning to discuss LGBTQI+ initiatives and upcoming events. Here is a screenshot of an event called Wear It Purple which focuses on showing  LGBTIQ+ young people that they have the right to be proud of who they are.

Lunchtime! I usually plan lunch with my cohort. We will all go at the same time for our lunch break in the kitchen and dining area on level 15 to catch up and have a chat. Below is the view from the office.

The rest of the day is spent communicating with the team and our clients and updating and completing work papers so that they are ready for review by the manager.


End of work!  We usually head to after work drinks or dinner to unwind from the day. KBBQ is a popular choice.
