Meet Coretext associate manager Adrienne Dolphin

Thoughtful and thorough, Adi has been integral to the growth and success of Coretext. Her care for her colleagues and clients ensures the smooth sailing of the business – and she never forgets a birthday!

Here she shares a few things about herself as part of our #2minuteswithcoretext series. 

• Describe your job: 

Managerial oversight of the company, originally as a business manager and then as general manager. And making sure the directors don’t spend too much.


• How long have you worked at Coretext? 

I’ve worked at Coretext since its start, so roughly a third of my life.


• Tell us about the photo you’ve provided

Getting away from the computer and taking in the salt air is a favourite pastime! Larry (director of meeting and greeting at Coretext) has spent quite a lot of time on the water, and luckily we have never had to fish him out of the drink.

• If you weren’t doing your job what would you be doing?  

I would be doing as much adventuring as I could to make up for the lack of adventuring over the last third of my life! This could mean anything from travelling to learning to paint, trying pickleball, volunteering or other unrealised pursuits! However, now I have to take bung knees into account.


• Best aspect of your job? 

The people at Coretext and how the inspiring work of our clients brings out the best in them.


• Where were you born?  Melbourne, the traditional land of the Wurundjeri people, part of the Kulin Nation.


• What are the best things about where you live now? 

Yarraville has been my home for many years, and I love the sense of community and local pride. I also love the Sun Cinema, the local eateries and being able to ride my bike in many directions. And it’s close to town.


• What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you? 

I studied piano at the conservatorium and used to be able to play Beethoven sonatas and Bach preludes and fugues. My favourite composer to play was Debussy. I’m very rusty now.


• What is your favourite overseas destination?

The next one! Although Iceland is spectacular for its geology and landscape.


• I have a talent for:

Always getting a car park outside where I need to go. The ‘Hollywood’ park.


• The scariest thing I’ve done is:

My first jump out of a plane was solo; tandem jumps were not yet a thing.


• My last holiday was:

Over Christmas and New Year in Perth with family. Indian Ocean beaches (numerous), Rottnest Island beaches (numerous), Swan River boating jaunts, and a lot of food.


• I admire the ability to:

Always see the positive. It makes anything possible.
