– an enthusiastic young leader in the shipping container logistics industry, a mostly unseen effort which touches everyone’s lives through social, environmental and economic impacts.
It’s truly fascinating, however, I have many interests and aspirations beyond corrugated steel boxes and I’d love to share some of my thoughts and ideas with you.
I hope you enjoy my content on business, personal development, productivity, wellness, the future of work, and other topics I find value in.
The future of maritime and logistics
Maritime trade and logistics impacts everyone in society without discrimination. The business arena is changing rapidly, requiring aware leaders who understand oncoming challenges faced by social, economic and environmental disruption.
Mitch Hawkins is a passionate leader with diverse experience from an electrical trade through to management roles. This has enabled him to translate complex technical details into meaningful analysis for critical decision making throughout a project’s lifecycle and operations.
Through various roles in technical, project and program management, Mitch has attained valuable domain knowledge and transferable skills which support organisations dealing with large projects and change.
As a proud advocate for diversity and inclusiveness, Mitch has championed and supported social projects including graduate talent acquisition, community engagement, mental health awareness programs and volunteering of digital services for Mission to Seafarers Victoria.
As a self-aware individual who thrives on helping others to achieve their potential, my career has been elevated through inter-personal relationships built upon mutual trust and respect.
A team player with competencies in leadership, project management, delivery, strategy, marketing, product support, design and sustainability. I’m currently part of the delivery team for Moorebank Logistics Park, Australia’s largest automated inland container terminal with leading edge technology and equipment!
My personal time is largely spent continuously learning. Studying part-time towards a Bachelor of Business degree majoring in maritime and logistics management.
I pursue other personal-development activities such as online tutorials, short courses, reading and writing articles, listening to podcasts and audio books, and managing multiple websites.
To perform at my best, I value maintaining my mental and physical wellbeing through a mix of yoga, gym, sauna, walking and spending time outdoors in the sun. I believe in stimulating my mind and creativity through rich and diverse experiences.
I maintain my health through regular exercise, chiropractic, remedial massage and an ergonomic sit-stand desk regime. I also enjoy exploring urban areas, coffee, cooking, and the odd Netflix series.
