About the panelists:

Lindsay Gordon has experienced a few career transitions so far (from engineering to customer service to career coach) and currently helps people make career choices based on what they know about themselves. She took the leap earlier this year, leaving Google to grow her career coaching side business into a full time gig (A Life of Options, LLC).

Kat Loughrey is an Australian-raised, Berlin-based digital consultant who specialises in social media and community management for startups and creative businesses. In 2014, she quit 9-to-5 life, sold her belongings and moved overseas in less than 6 weeks to embrace a remote work and freelancing lifestyle.

Scott Daniel Cooper is originally from Melbourne, Australia and is currently the Marketing Manager at a startup called GO1. He is also a live music photographer and videographer, has a project called Unseen Monsters with New Zealand artist Mr Leon Taylor, and loves to help out Melbourne based charity Helping Hoops.
