SPEAKER 

Amy Brown
Deputy Secretary, Strategy & Delivery 
NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet


Amy Brown loves working for NSW Government. She is passionate about delivering real outcomes that improve quality of life for our citizens, provide access to opportunities for individuals and deliver value for taxpayers. 

She’s currently Deputy Secretary and head of the Strategy & Delivery group at Department of Premier and Cabinet – a group formed to provide expert commercial, strategic and economic advice to the Premier on major and complex whole-of-government policies, programs and projects. 

Prior to joining DPC, Amy was a Partner in the Sydney office of PwC’s Infrastructure and Urban Renewal Business, with a practice that focused on social infrastructure and housing.

FACILITATOR

Monica Attard


Monica spent 28 years at the ABC working across radio and television. She was the ABC’s Russia correspondent at possibly the best time in modern history to be a Russian correspondent.

She reported on the coup against Mikhail Gorbachev, the collapse of Soviet communism, the rise of Boris Yeltsin and his peculiar brand of capitalism and democracy, the first Chechen war and she covered civil wars across the old Soviet Union. Four years of covering the revolution left her with just enough energy to pump out a book about the events.

Monica is now working with CNN International and The Hoopla, a women’s website, based in Sydney.
