Phil O’Sullivan is a technology, media and telecommunications specialist who recently became a partner at Allens. He tells KIRRILY SCHWARZ why his next goal is his most ambitious yet.
Noosa is best known for its happy holiday memories. Located on Queensland’s gorgeous Sunshine Coast, it’s famous for surfing, brunching, boutique shopping, koala spotting, and long days at the beach. Phil O’Sullivan laughs as he admits that his recollections now include a flash of fear.
O’Sullivan, who was promoted to partner at Allens in July, was competing in the swim leg of last year’s Noosa Triathlon when he was caught in a rip. A strong cyclist and runner, he tells LSJ swimming has always been his weakest skill, but the difficulty reached an entirely new level as he watched lifeguards racing back and forth, plucking his competitors from the water and ferrying them to the sand.
