Connecting You: interview with Georgina Costello SC

Video still_Connecting You_Kathryn Howard and Georgina Costello

At Hall & Wilcox, we are passionate about bringing together members of our professional community to connect and inspire each other. While we physically distance due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever to remain connected to each other.

We are delighted to welcome Georgina Costello SC as the first guest in our new ‘Connecting You’ series. The head of our national Public Sector industry group Kathryn Howard recorded a chat with Georgina during the COVID-19 lockdown. Georgina spoke about how she was coping with COVID-19, silver linings and opportunities the pandemic has presented (including why it’s important to eat the canned food we’ve all stocked up on!). Georgina also shared ideas for how to improve our approach to work post-COVID 19 and what sparks joy in her life.

Georgina, who was appointed as a Senior Counsel in Victoria in 2019, specialises in commercial, property, regulatory, administrative and common law matters. Her professional profile may be viewed here.

So please take a break from your desk, play this podcast and be inspired.
