Negar is most passionate about creating an influence in areas where the most amount of people can be helped, particularly those who could be more vulnerable. Negar enjoys travelling, snowboarding, playing lacrosse and continually seeking more areas where she can add value.
At 19, with 1 year to finish her University degree, Negar started employment in a Recruitment Admin role with Performia Australia. As she so successfully handled this role, 4 months later in August 2008, she was promoted to Production Manager. Negar studied her second last semester of University degree full time whilst also working full time at Performia in 2009. Statistics had been the highest and triple the previous years, and double the next year.
In August 2009, Negar hired 2 more trainee consultants and got them trained which allowed her to travel to France on a student exchange program where she completed her final semester of university.
She returned to Performia in 2010, putting in many new productivity systems into the business and in June 2010, Negar was selected to establish the new Performia China office. In 1 week, the office was organised & structured. She trained 3 staff and the success of this meant that the new office could start their programs and expansion.
At 22, Negar achieved the highest project delivery record at Performia, something not done prior at any of the 23 international Performia offices. Since then, Negar has moved rapidly within the organisation to General Manager and next as CEO in 2017, overseeing Australia and China.
Negar also volunteers and enjoys giving back to the wider community. In 2016 and after one year of volunteering with Cancer Council’s Community Fundraising event Relay For Life, Negar was asked to become the Chair for the region of Moreland, Victoria. She delivered an outstanding relay event in 2017 with results higher than the year before in challenging conditions. She is now a member of the volunteer training team to help connect, empower and inspire the Chairs across all regions in Victoria as well as the broader Relay for Life Community.
Recently, she became the Strategic Director for Brunswick Lacrosse where she supports the future of this sports club that was established 25 years ago with a new women’s team that was launched last year, 2019.
