Aussie businesses are scrapping their offices for good: Here’s how to manage the shift
Australian businesses are giving up their office premises for good, and making a permanent move to remote work. But, while it will lead to reduced rent bills, there are other things to consider. Speaking to SmartCompany, Deanna Nott, owner of Gold Coast-based Wings PR, says she was looking for a new office space just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Now her work-life balance is improved, she and her team are being more productive, and even her family dynamics have changed for the better. She relishes not having to deal with a landlord, she explains, and her business’ carbon footprint has been reduced.
Gold Coast identity and owner of Wings PR Deanna Nott is now the longest serving public affairs officer at Royal Australian Air Force
Gold Coast Bulletin
FORMER Gold Coast Bulletin journalist Deanna Nott has just clocked up 27 years in Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) — she’s now the longest serving public affairs officer in the aerial warfare branch of the Australian Defence Force. The seeds of service were planted in her childhood when her Italian immigrant father Tony was conscripted for the Vietnam War. He would often say to his little girl “the opportunity to serve your country is the greatest privilege” and that message took deep root in Mrs Nott’s psyche. Born in Brisbane, she moved to the Gold Coast in 1981 with her boatie parents who had a holiday house in Paradise Point. She went to primary school at St Francis Xavier Runaway Bay and then high school at the now demolished Star of The Sea catholic college in Southport. In 1989 Mrs Nott won the Gold Coast Bulletin’s university cadetship scholarship and started at the paper in 1990. During her tenure as the police reporter she saw an advertisement in The Australian calling for working journalists to become Specialist Reservists, serving as commissioned officers in the RAAF.
