In Episode 101 of the No Limitations podcast “Leadership: A Choice and a Privilege”, Blenheim Partners’ Gregory Robinson speaks to Sarah Hunter, Managing Director of Officeworks, an every-channel retailer supporting Australians to work, learn, create and connect. Officeworks has 167 stores, a website home to 40,000 products and over 9,000 team members.

In a spirited discussion, Sarah brings to life the importance of leadership, sharing personal experiences across Australia and the United Kingdom, having to adapt and thrive in different industries from professional services, sport, banking, airports and the fast-paced arena of retail. She touches on the attitude to not only achieve but to also unlock potential as a leader. Finally, Sarah reminds us of the significance of not losing sight of one’s purpose, priorities and what really matters.

Prior to joining Officeworks in 2019, Sarah was the Demerger Program Director at Coles, overseeing the successful implementation of the demerger of the business from Wesfarmers in 2018. She also held various general management positions at Coles and worked in the United Kingdom for more than ten years across banking and airports, having held senior commercial roles at Gatwick Airport and the British Airports Authority.
