I’m also the Executive Sponsor of the Deloitte Foundation, which spearheads our charitable contributions and community partnerships, something I’m personally passionate about.

Throughout your experience with CEDA, what have you enjoyed the most?

CEDA is an important partner for Deloitte.  We have a shared purpose around creating informed debate on the issues that help to build a stronger economic future for Australia, such as the transport infrastructure event series that Deloitte is currently supporting.  Personally I enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded leaders who help me provide a different perspective to our clients.

How does CEDA help your company to achieve its agenda?

CEDA provides high level networking and relationship building opportunities to enable us to debate Australia’s most important economic issues with both the government and private sector. Deloitte is proud to be a member of CEDA and to be involved in those conversations that help shape the national economic agenda. CEDA connects us to the people and insights that help us to make an impact that matters.

How does CEDA help your company understand/meet challenges and opportunities you or your clients face?

CEDA provides robust insights and policy perspectives into many of the key economic and social issues affecting Australia today.  The calibre of its events and speakers is second to none and provides Deloitte with a valuable network to sense-check our perspectives.
