Beyond Work - Cameron Poetzscher's Hobbies & Interests
As Vice President of Corporate Development at Uber, Cameron Poetzscher is a corporate exec through and through. However, he also thoroughly enjoys time away from the boardroom. His range of interests and hobbies spans far and wide. Australian sports are near and dear to his heart, he keenly follows the rugby league and rugby union teams of his home country and is an ardent Australian cricket supporter.
Poetzscher has a broad and well-tuned perspective on the ins and outs of Australian sports and enjoys analyzing its changing landscape but his interest in sports doesn't begin and end in Australia. He is enthusiastic about American sports, competitive sports in general and the influences of technology on various sporting fields, all of which he writes about in his sports blog. Additionally, his connection to his country of origin spans far beyond its sports culture. In My Australia, another blog Poetzscher updates regularly, one can read about economic trends in Australia, interesting social phenomena, cultural developments, environmental issues, travel suggestions and much more.
Off the Track and onto the Trail
Australia is one of the most picturesque and scenic destinations in the world. It is virtually impossible to remain indifferent to the beauty and splendor of the coastal walks, inland trails and tourist hotspots the country has to offer. One of the areas dear to Poetzscher's heart is the great Australian Outdoors. He tackles this topic from different angles on his blog, providing hiking tips, discussing related environmental issues, sharing travel experiences and giving an insider's perspective any tourist could find helpful and interesting.
A Foreign-Native View on Australian Economy
Even before joining Uber Poetzscher had extensive experience-based knowledge in finance, economy and business development. He began his professional journey in Australia as a financial consultant, went on to excel at Harvard Business School and joined Goldman Sachs, where he became Managing Director and led the way on many international deals and major acquisitions. He has a creative yet analytical business approach and is fascinated by global economy and the international impact of various financial trends. A hint of this interest too can be found in his Australia blog where he takes a look at the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement of November 2015 and discusses the unique financial dynamics between the two nations.
Writing and Running
Cameron follows marathon coverage and research, he reflects on hot trends in the competitive cycling arena, and if one reads through his sports blog it's hard to miss how immersed he was in the Vendee Globe sailing competition. However, Poetzscher doesn't only follow competitive sports online and write about them on his blog, he himself enjoys participating in a variety of physical activities in his everyday life. Running is part of his routine, he uses cycling as a fun, practical and green means of transportation, and has enjoys sailing from a very young age.
