Our next guest is Jacob Masina, one of thirteen Board Directors at the University of Sydney Union, a not-for-profit body looking after more than 50,000 students, staff, alumni & who are responsible for the financial management & allocation of $29million. 

Prior to this role, Jacob was the President of  the Sydney Arts Student Society (SASS) - the official Faculty Club for Arts and Social Sciences students at the University of Sydney. If you’re a regular listener, you will be familiar with Michael Hester, the University of Melbourne Arts Student Society President, so today, from beautiful Sydney we are hearing another perspective on what it takes to lead one of the largest student societies on campus as well as hear all about Jacob’s other leadership roles & experience.

Top Quotes:

“The ultimate question is balance.”

“Google calendar is my bible.”

“People don’t really know what direction they want to go, they know which direction they’re heading.”

“Everybody has the capacity to know where they want to go.”

“Empowerment is a leader harnessing their own potential & the potential of their community to encourage & lift up everybody to improve their environment so that everybody who is a stakeholder in that environment is having a better time… Entitlement tends to blind leaders to that vision… & pushes away the very community members who you said you wanted to take care of.” 

“The only solution to entitlement is empowerment.”
