Lawrie Milnes

Shipment Coordinator

What energises you at work?
When everything runs smoothly and I don’t hear anything after the documents have been sent. If I hear back then most likely something has gone wrong!

What’s the biggest misconception people have about your job?
That it’s easy and stress-free. There is a huge reliance on factors which are completely outside of my control for every shipment to run smoothly, i.e. all flights must arrive exactly on schedule and staff members in another facility thousands of kilometres away have to fully understand every instruction/schedule given.

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Relaxing, looking at places I want to visit next, watching historical films.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
White – most people think white crayons aren’t very useful but you can make really nice artwork with white crayons on black paper.

Favourite coral and why?
Scolymia’s, because of the number of amazing colours and contrasts you get with them.

What do you love about the job?
The work culture and freedom.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
Be able to control probability,e.g. I currently have a one in two million chance of winning the lottery, if I can control probability, I can give myself a 100% chance of winning it
