Day Job

Project Manager at Forsythes Technology


Chanel is a Project Manager at Forsythes Technology and has almost 10 years’ experience in a variety of roles across both IT and HR. This is Chanel’s third year with hyp, and her second year in the role of Secretary. She is also on the board of Octapod Association and is the City Coordinator for this year’s Pint of Science.

She initially studied Psychology but after finishing that degree she realised it wasn’t for her and immediately enrolled in a Masters of IT followed by a Graduate Certificate in Project Management, which was a much better fit. From there, she continued on a rewarding career journey solving business problems, building relationships and leveraging new technology to make people’s work-life easier.

Outside of work, she is a wine and cheese enthusiast but balances these delicious pursuits with her long term involvement in Tae Kwon-Do. She has a second degree black belt and is an assistant instructor who has umpired at an international level (2018 World Cup).
