John Donnon



John is enjoying a career change after working in the Disability Employment Services space for the past fifteen years. Until recently he was the General Manager of a Melbourne DES provider delivering high performing specialist and generalist contracts. During his time in DES, John was been involved in writing successful tenders, rolling out unique and innovative programs, and sitting on disability peak body committee and advisory groups.

In the broader disability context, he has assisted with NDIS-readiness transformation of his previous organisation and is aware of the opportunities that exist when a creative approach is taken to service design. John sees the potential in the teams he works with and plays to their individual and collective strengths to achieve the best outcomes.

To keep business life diverse, John also manages a successful Bayside landscaping business, runs a busy airbnb guest house on the peninsula and has returned to his drama teacher roots with ongoing extra roles on the both small and large screens.
