Jenny White - The Big Cheese AKA MD

Why do you think that White Now loves having you as a team member ?
Well as the owner of the company I have been here since day dot so I guess they don't have a choice ! Seriously, I really believe that the team love the integrity and values of the company along with the ability to have amazing flexibility in their jobs ! This is definitely NOT a 'stiff or rigid' company - we love to have fun.
What is the best thing about being part of the White Now team ?
What can I say - seeing happy people loving their jobs ! It makes my day.
If you were given an open plane ticket for anywhere in the world, where would you go and why ?
I would fly to Heron Island and build an office under water at the base of the Great Barrier Reef. The office would be made totally of glass and scuba-diving to work is a must ! I love the water !
What do you love doing in the time that you're not at work ?
Dreaming of having an office under water and looking after my gorgeous family. Wrapping up in my snuggie when it's cold!!
Do you have a mentor and if so, what do you see in that person that makes them your mentor ?
I have both business mentors and personal mentors. The values that they demonstrate are honesty, personal and professional integrity and the ability to embrace everyone around them with an endearing demeanor and positive outlook on life.
If you could not have your current job, what other job would you love to have ?
I would love to be a Scuba Diving Instructor / Dive Master working on all the reefs around the world.


Sarah Watts - Amazing All Rounder with Too Many Skills to List ! (AKA Chief Leader of White Now)

The White Now team and work environment is quite unique - you can wear your Snuggie at work !!! The work is interesting and can be challenging, but it is lots of FUN to be a part of this team ! It's a pleasure to come to work, NO Really !

Italy - I LOVE Italy but I haven't seen all of it, still lots to explore, see and do! (and eat and drink).

Walking, going to the beach, reading, spending time with my husband Pete, family and friends - general socialising !

Andrew B-S – Webmaster Nerdy Num Num & Technical Advisor

Why do you think that White Now loves having you as a team member ?
Being as nerdy as I am and White Now being such a well known website, they need my nerdy webmaster skills – they couldn't do without me !
What is the best thing about being part of the White Now team ?
I love everything – it is such a relaxing environment and the boss really cares about making sure we are happy.
If you were given an open plane ticket for anywhere in the world, where would you go and why ?
I am a skydiver and have racked up around 1500 jumps so I would probably have a round the world ticket with 50 or 60 stops and jump in all the most scenic places in the world.
What do you love doing in the time that you're not at work ?
Being a true nerd, I love my sci-fi movies and have been known to spend the day watching The Lord of The Rings Trilogy in my own home theatre – that is 12+ hours (including required breaks) !
Do you have a mentor and if so, what do you see in that person that makes them your mentor ?
Shall I say Bill Gates ? No, I am not that nerdy. I love the core values set by the founders of companies such as Google and Virgin, so I guess I watch what they are up to.
If you could not have your current job, what other job would you love to have ?
I am analytical by nature and love problem solving and there are many jobs that would suit. If the truth be known, I would love to be a full time Dad and look after my little boy for a living. He is simply adorabubble !

I like to be immersed in the deep blue sea as much as possible - summer, winter, rain or shine.
Do you have a mentor and if so, what do you see in that person that makes them your mentor ?
Not so much a career based mentor but I would consider my father a life/values mentor as he is calm, just, thorough and still intellectually curious at nearly 80 years of age.
If you could not have your current job, what other job would you love to have ?
Researching and writing on anything that takes my fancy.

Coming from a hospitality and service background having worked as a Woolies storeman, Primary School teacher, trained as a Chef, looked after apprentices and the admin for a Group Training Company, and I have some knowledge of RTO's and training.

What do you love doing in the time that you're not at work ?
Catching up with my family on the Central Coast of NSW is a biggie ! Then there's the friends here in Sydney who I enjoy going out with for meals or a drink ! I don't consider myself a very good soloist but having a bass voice singing in a choir works for me ! I've sung in four different ones to date and looking to getting back into that again soon !
Do you have a mentor and if so, what do you see in that person that makes them your mentor ?
I have a business mentor Now ! Jenny White is not only a fantastic, caring boss but provides a great sounding board for bouncing ideas and thoughts by, drawing on her massive knowledge of the club, gaming and hospitality industries. I also have a long time friend who, though has moved away from Sydney and to sunnier and warmer regions, still regard his opinion as one to abide by.
If you could not have your current job, what other job would you love to have ?
I could be His Royal Highness, Prince David John, Prince of Wales, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Extra Knight of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, on and on and on, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfew, Lord of the Isles, Prince and Great Steward of Scotland. Seems an easy enough job for Charlie !

My mum is the Big Cheese and she lets me play with my toys all day when I'm not at school.
