2019 CEO Magazine Australian Executive of the Year Awards

Thursday 14 November 2019, Melbourne

Good evening everyone!

Firstly may I warmly congratulate all the other finalists and winners of tonight’s awards – there sure is a lot of talent in this room! I’m especially overjoyed to be able to congratulate my exceptionally hard-working EA Talitha Ramsey on being named as a finalist tonight.

Thank you so much for this award – I appreciate it very, very much.

Thank you to Chris and CEO Magazine. It is without a doubt that the CEO Magazine is our country’s leading business magazine and not only in Australia, the CEO magazine I understand is in several other countries too.

I am delighted to be here tonight accepting this award with my daughter and our loyal and hardworking staff as well as a number of incredibly hard working Olympians – they are fantastic role models, and no doubt many of whom, will become leaders for our wonderful country too.

Thank you again.
