Greg describes himself as “a very competitive person, who loves to be challenged on a daily basis”. Greg attributes his success to the support he receives from his family, Country Energy, workmates and his head teacher at TAFE Dave Arnold. However Greg is aware that the desire to achieve comes from within, “My success comes from the heart; I am very willing to work hard to achieve my ultimate goals.” Greg loves his job with Country Energy; he finds the daily variety of his tasks stimulating and already has his eyes on advancement within company ranks in the near future. Greg and Tim took on the best young Mechatronics teams from across the world over four grueling days of competition. They were awarded a Certificate of Participation and are noted to be in the top 20 best Mechatronics engineers in the world. On his return from Helsinki Greg plans to complete his associate diploma and “hopefully secure a job in the PLC industry preferably with Country Energy”.
