Darren Marks – Team Leader Programs and Projects
Who would play you in a film? I think Kung Fu Panda would play me. He is totally in awe of everyone and everything is AWESOME! I can identify with that so definitely, Kung Fu Panda.
If you were planning a music festival, who – dead or alive – would be your headliner? I’m not a music person so can I have Robin Williams doing stand-up. His stand up is literally the funniest thing I have seen in my life – I just love his work.
You're given an airplane ticket to anywhere in the world – where do you choose to go? At the moment, South America but when the Dakar Rally is on, or maybe France during the Tour de France. Both I think would be great.
What's your favourite memory? When my kids were born and they finally arrived. It was a massive sense of relief when the birthing thing was over and then great to have them finally there with you.
Who is your inspiration? Shane Watts, he’s an off-road motorcycle champion who led the way for Aussies to race overseas. He started with nothing when he first went to the USA, lived out of a van and became a world champion.
You're on a deserted island – what have you brought with you? My wife. With kids, we don’t get to spend much time alone so it’d be a good opportunity. And, I kind of like her company.
Why Toowoomba Clubhouse? I like seeing people achieve something they didn’t think was possible and surprise themselves in their ability. When they make something happen, I really like explaining to them that I didn’t do the work, they did it themselves. In a sense, I get to help people become better versions of themselves, whether they are staff or members. That makes my job enjoyable.
