On this episode we are speaking to Duncan McHugh, Head of Finance at Nutrition Warehouse, and Co-Founder of One More Rep.
Duncan’s story is one of loyalty. Having a Dad who worked as a CFO for the theme parks on the Gold Coast for 25 years, Duncan is someone who didn’t find it strange to stay in roles for 10 years.
We also talk about:
– How he spent time in a remote town in Northern Queensland early in his career.
– What it has been like to start his own Accounting Firm.
– What it means to ‘manage up’
– How he managed Covid as a leader at Nutrition Warehouse.
Another great episode with a great guest.
