Matthew Taylor - Conversation Program Manager
Maestro of the conversation event; Matt is a throwback from the Henley Club (Folio’s spiritual forebear) where he led the Arts and Culture Working Group. When he is not securing high profile speakers for Folio, Matt is a public policy manager at the Victorian Government and supports literacy education through his social enterprise, MET Designs.
Deirdre Hoban - Community Engagement Manager
Folio’s community engagement manager comes from a fine arts background but currently masquerades as Incubation Manager at AGL, bringing new products to life, most recently Electric Vehicle subscriptions. Look out for Deirdre creating the social magic for the community online, and keeping the working group in check in-between posts.
Kartik Iyer - Finance Manager
When it comes to the business of managing the business we turn to our money-guy Kartik. He will remind us that his CFO credentials leaves him a little overqualified for Folio’s portfolio right now but we know we are in safe hands as we scale. When Kartik isn’t helping out the little guys with their accounts, he spends his time working and volunteering in roles across the social enterprise, impact investing and not-for-profit ecosystem.
Benjamin Jacobs - Activities Manager
There is no Folio without the social, and for the best venues and drink deals we turn to Ben, our currently designated "activities manager". Besides being a phone or any technology geek, we are not sure what else Benjamin does with his time, so we are expecting a program of amazing social activities (and cheese pairings) from him.
Jeanette Chan - Membership Manager
Meet your Membership Manager Jeanette, the guiding hand for interviewing and onboarding as we grow our community. Jeanette can be found managing major agriculture projects for the state government, advocating for mental health with SANE Australia and lending her experience to the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative! Amazing.
Benedict Hoban - Marketing and Communications Manager
Another workgroup leader from the Henley Club days, this ex-marketing-hack lends his wordsmithery to the newsletter and website, keeping you informed of all goings-on and up-comings. When he’s not waxing lyrical pixels, Benedict can be found designing board games, cooking paella and managing digital projects for NFPs.
