Canon

Community CookOff (Team)

About Team Canon

Team Canon is pulling out all the stops to raise $50k for the OzHarvest Community CookOff. For every $1 donated, OzHarvest can deliver two meals to people in need. This means Team Canon could help provide 100,000 meals by reaching our fundraising goal! If you can spare a few dollars for the cause, please donate today.

 

Meet our CookOff Crew

Kotaro Fukushima, Managing Director, Canon Oceania: Kotaro has only just joined Canon Oceania, and while he probably wasn’t expecting one of his first jobs here would be in the kitchen, he’s certainly up to the challenge.

 

Luke Clark, Chief Executive Officer, Canon Business Services: Luke is super passionate about OzHarvest and as a bonus, his childhood dream was to be a chef. Rumour has it, he still loves to cook so he should have no trouble in the kitchen.

 

Lawrence Mills, GM - Sales & Professional Services, Canon Business Services: Lawrence is at his happiest standing over a BBQ and he loves to entertain! Odds are he’s going to be a pro on the grill station and keep spirits high when the pressure is on.

 

Ben Luke, GM - Business Sales, Canon Australia: Not much is known about Ben’s kitchen prowess at this stage but when it comes to fundraising, he’s the team superstar. In fact, Ben has already raised the equivalent of 20,000 meals and moved his fundraising goalpost.

 

David Field, Director - People & Finance, Canon Oceania: David is all about community spirit and creativity, so by raising money for people in need and whipping up gourmet delights, he’ll be fulfilling two of his greatest passions.

 

Aaron Berthelot, GM Consumer Sales, Canon Australia: Aaron fancies himself as a Michelin Star chef who just hasn’t found the right restaurant yet, so this CookOff is the perfect opportunity to showcase his culinary skills (and Aaron is already proving to be a fundraising champion).

 

Canon’s Kyosei Philosophy

In Oceania, as in all parts of the world, Canon practices the philosophy of 'Kyosei' - living and working together for the common good. Canon returns the benefits of its success to the community through its sponsorships, charity and environmental programs.
