My name is Selina Yousefi, I am an electrical engineer working at Stowe Australia. I was born in Iran, coming from a family of engineers. I studied in Iran at the Azad University, leaving in 2009 to live in Australia with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Following my passion for Sustainability, I completed a course in “Business Sustainability Management” with the University of Cambridge.
Over the years I have worked for some of the largest tier1 engineering firms, and on some innovative and forward-thinking projects that have been quite unique and rare within Australia. I worked at Norman Disney & Young as an electrical/communication consultant engineer involved in construction and fitout of the new Road and Maritime Services offices branches, Barangaroo International towers in Sydney, ANZ bank storefronts branches and high end consumer stores like Dior shop. I gained experience working as a project leader on high rise towers, smart commercial buildings and gained technical experience with advanced building automation.
Currently, I work for Stowe Australia, which is one of the largest Electrical Contractors across Australia as an electrical engineer on projects for the University of Sydney and strategy advisor for Stowe Project Division Strategy and Management Team. I have worked with tier one contractors and builders such as Lendlease, Laing O’Rourke and CPB.
At the moment I act as a mentor to young females through the National association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) for the second year. As much as I have taught and guided these young women I have learned.
While my career is the focus of my life I try not to box myself into one skillset or one stereotype. My passion is Sustainability and I enjoy ballet and painting. Apart from work, I am an active member of groups fighting for women’s rights.
What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...
The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
We got some quality leads. The show is managed by very nice organizers. We enjoyed the content and environment of the show a lot.
The show is excellent for the business. There’s lots of good quality people to do business with. This is also the best show we’ve ever been to.
