Finding Your Epic Podcast: Episode 16 - Simplicity

Welcome to the Finding Your EPIC podcast.

In this episode, host Jacqueline Frost talks to Lucy Newcombe, Chief People and ESG Officer, Computershare

Throughout the conversation, Lucy highlights the gradual realisation of her own problem-solving skills, particularly during a pivotal moment early in her career in Australia. Tasked with a complex challenge by the Chief Legal Officer, she learned to deconstruct problems into manageable parts, a skill she traces back to overcoming imposter syndrome and a curious nature developed from childhood.

Lucy’s closing thought, inspired by a quote from Gandalf in J.R.R. Tolkien’s writings, encapsulates her philosophy: we must decide how to use our time wisely, choosing either to complicate or simplify our approach to challenges to maximize our impact and effectiveness.

This perspective not only guides her professional actions but also serves as a personal mantra, reminding her to pursue clarity and purpose daily.
