Darryn resigned from the Children’s Medical Research Institute in May, after a 20-year stint that saw him rise to become head of operations and manage a team of 50 people.
Now, he’s pursuing a career in radio.
Despite the big career shift, Darryn isn’t going in cold.
Darryn’s previous job focused on engineering and technology. And, since 2019, he’s been working as a producer and presenter for a community radio station, Alive 90.5 FM. So he’s open to roles that involve studio work, on-air presenting or some combination of the two.
One thing that impressed me during our lunch was Darryn’s communication skills – he speaks clearly and asks good questions.
That’s not a coincidence, it turns out.
Darryn says his 18 months in radio have turned him into a better listener and made him more aware of the annoying filler words (“like”, “um”, “ah”) people use when they speak.
When Darryn’s not behind a mixing console, you’ll find him on his bike. He’s a keen cyclist and a director of Bicycle NSW.
