Meet the Philanthropy Team

KENNETH WATKINS, PHILANTHROPY DIRECTOR

As a member of The Australian Ballet’s Executive team for more than 18 years, I have made a strong contribution to the vision, values and strategic objectives of the business.  I have worked to increase the profile of the company and look forward to working with the philanthropy team to ensure The Australian Ballet has the resources to be one of the pre-eminent ballet companies in the world. My vision is to make a difference through relationship building and securing a strong financial base through philanthropy.  As Australians begin to embrace philanthropy as part of their culture, they are beginning to make a real difference to the life of all arts companies.

SHARYN GILHAM, Assistant to Philanthropy Director

I have been so fortunate to be part of the Philanthropy team at The Australian Ballet for the past ten years.  I have been truly amazed and inspired by our dancers and creative staff, together with many talented colleagues who are all striving to help the company excel at every level.  I have also been inspired and humbled by the generosity and passion of our Patrons who give so generously to support the Ballet to ensure its future success.  I love my job!

JANE DIAMOND, PATRONS MANAGER

In my role as Patrons Manager (NSW & ACT) I oversee philanthropic fundraising for The Australian Ballet.  For the past 15 years, I have worked closely with ballet patrons in Sydney and Canberra to facilitate their ballet experiences and nurture a love of The Australian Ballet.  Should you wish to speak to a ballet representative in Sydney about the potential to join the ballet family, I would be delighted to hear from you on 02 9253 5316 or email using the button below.
