December 1, 2017 Meet Ben Hickey :) Farewell Emma Hardy :(

December 2017 Newsletter

Emma and Ben

If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting our newest team member Ben Hickey, please allow me. Ben is a content creator extraordinaire with a love for personal essays, political satire, and short stories about ideas.

What we love about him:

  • He has a quirky moustache and beard
  • He produces his own podcast called Bensplaining
  • He volunteers for organisations such as More To Life, The Victorian Greens and Quit Coal.

Meanwhile, we bid farewell to Emma Hardy who has been an integral part of the Avion story for the past two years. We’re incredibly sorry to see her go, but we’re also thrilled that she’s starting a new chapter at NFP organisation, Justice Connect.

What we’ll miss about Emma:

  • Her enduring quest to challenge ideas for the better
  • Her wicked sense of humour
  • Her immense creativity
  • Her knack for solving jigsaw puzzles in our kitchen.

While we’re deeply indebted to Emma for her contribution to Avion’s growth, we look forward to seeing what fresh beginnings 2018 will bring.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Natalie & the Avion team

P.S. Our office closes 12pm Friday 22 December and reopens Monday 8 January.
