Michelle Cox - Global COO Bastion Collective
Ambitious, feisty, driven, and passionate. Describe the qualities of people who have operated in the world of senior executive roles for the majority of their career and these words will come up. Few are also as kind, caring, and people-centric as Michelle. Having spent 17 years in the travel industry after owning and managing a hotel in Alice Springs from the age of 23, Michelle found herself on an adult gap-year exploring what impact she wanted to have on the world.
Four years ago Michelle set up the Sydney office of an agency business and is now the Global COO of Bastion Collective (a global marketing communications agency). Despite her career achievements happiness has always been her metric stick, and when she realised she didn't feel settled early in 2016 she embarked on some internal discovery to redesigned what her role meant to her.
Starting a side creative hustle, Knox | Cox Candle Co, Michelle navigates a global business during the week and spends her weekend wicking candles with a glass of bubbles or setting up stalls at local markets.
In our conversation we talk about the important of calling out biases and injustices at work, the importance of looking after yourself amongst the busyness, and what it really means to pursue happiness at work.
