Meet the Team: Laura

We’re highlighting our business’ strongest asset: our wonderful team!

Here at the Canberra Innovation Network, we’re passionate about innovation and are here to help you make an impact and change the world. Our team is full of clever, connected, and creative people and we’re excited to introduce you to our new Reception and Events & Marketing Support, Laura Croft.

Explain what you do at CBRIN in 25 words or less.

I am a part of the Marketing team at CBRIN, where I work on the social platforms, blogs and website.

Tell us about what you are working on at the moment.

Currently I am working on updating the CBRIN Brochure, which will be given out at events and workshops. Keep an eye out for it!

 Who or what inspires you?

I am inspired by everything around me, whether that’s driving to work, playing games or scrolling social media. I find inspiration everywhere.

What’s your favourite book or podcast?

My favourite book series is Throne of Glass by Sarah.J.Maas. This is an action, adventure, fantasy and romance book all in one. I love this series and definitely recommend if you love those genres.

If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be and why?

The Imperial System… that is all.

What’s your poison?

Anything sweet will always get me!

What do you work towards in your free time?

I always plan one activity during my free time whether that is going for a casual walk or something more exiting. But I am mostly always either shopping, reading, going out to restaurants or playing games. These are usually my go to activities.

What’s the coolest innovation you’ve read or heard about lately?

The coolest innovative start up I recently learnt about was creating a platform for students to talk and rate education facilities and universities. It is such a great idea and definitely a platform that would be useful to not only national students but also international students wanting to study in Australia or other countries.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that we may not know

Something you may not know is I enjoy building and taking a part things like my PC, controllers or anything mechanical. Just to see what the inside looks like or if I’m able to rebuild it.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?

Cotton Candy #FFBCD9 or Wild Strawberry #FF43A4
