Bachelor of Creative Arts (Drama);
Member of the International Goldern Key Honours Society.
Juliet has been a part of the Synergy Global Effectiveness Intern Team (EIT) since March 2015. In that time she has been promoted to EIT leader & now works closely with Chief Exec, Heather-Jane Gray to implement the business strategy, as well as the leading the EIT focussing on systems, & mentoring new intern talent.
Aside from achieving this position with Synergy Global, Juliet is also avid member of the arts & has enjoyed acting for many years. In 2013 she graduated from Deakin University with a Bachelor of Creative Arts, majoring in drama & minoring in philosophy. In her 2nd year she ranked in the top 15% of her faculty & was awarded the opportunity to become a member of the International Golden Key Honours Society, which she promptly accepted. While studying in her 1st year of University, Juliet took on another year-long course, ‘The Performer’s Ensemble’ at St Martin’s Youth Arts Centre, where she began to more thoroughly explore her passion for acting alongside 12 of her peers. In 2011, in between her university coursework, she also trained under the reputable Wendy Ward as a professional actor at the Ward Acting Studio. More recently she participated in the internationally renowned Howard Fine Master Class – another intensive acting course.
By studying acting in depth, Juliet has learnt many tools that aid her in understanding the psychology behind motives & actions of people. Juliet is emotionally intelligent in this regard & is transferring her knowledge to work with our Effectiveness Interns Team (EIT) to implement our Business Strategy & Marketing Plan.
She has also developed charismatic skills that allow her to engage a room, work effectively & enjoyably within a team – easily connecting with people on a personal & professional level. Training with the Ward Acting Studio has taught her to be self-aware & confident in her individuality, focussing on her strengths. This is directly aligned with Synergy Global’s values-base & culture, which is one of the reasons she was recruited by for Effectiveness Interns Team (EIT) to become part of our growing ‘Learning Community’.
Her key interests & skills focus around these 4 themes:
Continuous Professional & Personal Development
Continuous Quality Improvement – striving for excellence instead of perfection
Systems & Operations
Communication – creating transparent communication, rapport & ownership of work within a team
She has performed in many shows including productions in the Melbourne Fringe Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Midsumma Festival, & St Martin’s Hatched. Her most notable performances are: short film, ‘Plunge’ (2015), has screened in many national & international film festivals winning multiple awards including Melbourne Fringe Festival’s best student film award; Status (2014), a true account of peoples stories living with HIV; & Love Triangle, 1919 (2014), a monologue driven performance inspired by the story of Eugene Falleni, a transgendered man living in 1919, Melbourne where Juliet played the lead, the transgender man, Edward. Over the years Juliet has done many interviews & photo-shoots with radio stations & newspapers in order to promote her shows. She has become adept at marketing through learning to pitch herself as the brand & commodity to casting directors & acting agencies. By putting this skill into practice over the course of her acting career, Juliet can now recognise what is & isn’t marketable to consumers &/or clients.
In addition to acting, Juliet has worked in hospitality since 2008 in a number of roles, predominantly as a Barista & 2nd in Charge. It was during these roles that she developed her problem-solving skills, objection management, & ability to adapt quickly to new environments, co-operation, & leadership through training new staff. She has a strong work ethic & invites challenges that push her professionally to achieve goals, on an individual, team & organisational basis.
