JEREMY CHEETHAM | PRESIDENT
Jeremy Cheetham got his start working with professional theatre company Tropic Sun/Full Throttle Theatre, which was operating as an ensemble with daily training, workshop facilitation, rehearsing and performing together while also managing some of the operations of the organisation in a similar way that QSE operates. Notable credits include multiple productions of Shakespeare In The Park (2006-2009), a tour of Futz to Korea’s Suwon Hwaseong Fortress International Theatre Festival (2008), a tour of Oedipus to Japan to open the newly built Iwaki Performing Arts Centre (2009) and multiple tours of 3 Blokes & Their Barbies across WA & QLD between (2008 – 2010).
Since leaving the stage, Jeremy has built a career in digital marketing and is excited to bring his experience in marketing and acquisition, focus on partnerships and passion for advocating the incredible skills and talents that QSE fosters among a diverse range of actors and artist managers to enrich the lives of our communities and bring epic stories to the stage.
JUDY ZHU | SECRETARY
Judy is a ‘multipotentialite’ – classically trained pianist, intellectual property and technology lawyer, arts administrator and aspiring museum professional. After graduating with a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and a Master of Museum Studies, she became deeply passionate about the role of arts and culture in our society, and the protection of all forms of cultural heritage.
When she is not beavering away at her day job in private legal practice, she can be found sipping a latte of some description, respectfully enjoying art in its many forms, volunteering at the Arts Law Centre of Australia, assisting the management committee of the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra and of course, working with the talented humans of the QSE.
KYLII DAVIES | TREASURER
Kylii has been involved in managing Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble mainstage productions since 2010 with her first introduction to the company with The Merchant of Venice. Since then Kylii has continued to work with the company as the Mainstage Production Manager.
When not coordinating logistics, budgets, creatives and crew for QSE, Kylii spends much of her professional career managing customer accounts, facilitating payments and purchasing requisitions for a local manufacturing company with an interest in technology solutions to drive efficient practices within her team and the broader organisation. Kylii has an Advanced Diploma in Business and is a Workplace Health and Safety Representative and over 15 years’ experience in managing and processing finances for several large companies.
TRACEY LLOYD | GENERAL MEMBER
Tracey Lloyd is the Founder of The Art of Creative Strategy, a boutique consultancy providing strategic planning, governance advice, systems development, business advice and coaching to small to medium enterprises in both the commercial and profit for purpose sectors. Tracey worked across the commercial and community space for over 25 years including senior leadership roles in the human services sector.
She holds an MBA from Griffith University and is a Fellow of the Institute of Managers and Leaders. Away from the physical (or virtual) facilitation space, you’ll find her under a pile of books in the library hunting for important details like what Saturday during the 1954 rugby league season a Balmain Tigers fan could get married without it clashing with a home game.
