Episode 90 – Trent McLaren

August 2, 2017

Trent’s beach life is perfect for coworker connections


Trent McLaren grew up visiting his family’s beach home near Melbourne anytime his parents had a long break from work. When he moved to Sydney, he thought what better place to live than on the beach? Then he can visit every day instead of just for holidays. When he isn’t entertaining coworkers at his home, he really enjoys walking along the beach and sipping lattes.

In this episode, Trent and I discuss his philosophy that “as long as my outcomes are being met, then everything is free reign.” We talk about how companies and firms can create the framework for a sharing culture to thrive but it’s still up to the team members to be an active participant in that. He also gives several examples of ways that coworkers have bonded at different places he’s worked.

Trent McLaren is the Head of Accounting & Strategic Partnerships at Practice Ignition in Sydney, Australia. He was named this year’s Thought Leader of the Year Award by Accountants Daily in Australia.

He graduated from Real Corporate Partners with a degree in Business Administration and Management before getting a Graduate Certificate and MBA from the Australian Institute of Business.
