Classnotes

Edward Dostine

Edward Dostine

Edward Dostine grew up in Darwin before moving to Sydney to pursue an undergraduate degree in science. On graduating he decided to broaden his horizons with a postgraduate degree in business. He says the Master of Management (CEMS) allowed him to develop a broad foundation of business skills, travel the world and meet people from a range of diverse backgrounds, ultimately helping to shape the person he is now. Today he works as Rider Marketing and Community Manager at Deliveroo, where he is able to provide opportunities for people to gain flexible income, contributing towards a better quality of life.

“In my career I’ve been fortunate to get in early at start-ups and help them grow, which has given me a great sense of ownership, passion and drive. It also means you can make mistakes as you go, learn from them and develop your skills at a faster rate.

“I think it’s important for all business leaders to have passion for what they do. With passion comes perseverance, which produces grit. And that will see you succeed in the end.”

Henrietta Ellice-Flint

Henrietta Ellice-Flint

Henrietta Ellice-Flint left school at 15 to study ballet full time, attending the Australian Ballet School followed by the National College of Dance, where she graduated as Dux. In 2009, she embarked on a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Art History and Japanese, before going on to complete a Master of Commerce. She was immediately recruited by global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company to a role that has taken her around the world, working for clients as diverse as fashion retailers in New York, mining companies in Papua New Guinea and a spirits manufacturer in London. She is now managing teams, and says the transition has been one of her proudest career moments.

“In my first two years I received the most incredible mentoring [from] my former managers, so to be able to (hopefully!) provide that for other analysts and associates is incredibly satisfying.”

One thing she still always takes in her carry-on bag? Her ballet shoes. Unbeknown to her team members, she does a barre routine in her hotel room before she starts each day.
