MY NAME IS JANE HOBAN AND I AM GLOBAL HEAD OF MARKETING AT T2 AND AM MARRIED WITH TWO BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. I'M FROM A VERY LARGE AND CLOSE FAMILY WITH FAMILY MEMBERS SPREAD ACROSS THE GLOBE.
I was born in Melbourne but have lived abroad for many years and travelled the world for work. I absolutely love the outdoors and anything to do with the beach... my favourite experience is wind on my face; that sense of freedom and space is so appealing.
My mother named me Jane because it was her favourite name and I believe my father had little choice in the matter.
Best thing about being a Jane is that there are not many of us and everyone can spell it!
I lived and worked in Singapore for 15 years and never met another Jane. Since moving home I have meet five (yes, five) and often get told that people's mothers are called Jane.
Worst thing is 'Plain Jane Superbrain' - a saying made famous by the show 'Neighbours' when I was a teenager and has forever haunted me.
Every day growing up – I felt it was such a plain name and I dreamed of an exotic name that no one could spell.
I agreed to be part of this project because I loved the central idea that there'd be so many differing personalities hidden behind what is considered a plain and common name.
I’m not plain Jane ...I'm completely unique!
