Annette has been involved in data and technology for over twenty years. Working across change management, communications, marketing and business development in B2B organisations has allowed Annette to combine passions in data / technology and communication.
Working with the IAPA Board, Annette grew the IAPA community to more than 8,000 people Australia-wide. As Managing Director of IAPA, Annette is the driving force behind promoting the strategic role of data and analytics in business and helping the industry meet the challenges of a fast-paced data environment, including addressing the analytics skills shortage and fostering data informed decision-making.
Key to this role is the recent introduction of IAPA-certification for analytics to help those who work in data and analytics gain independent recognition of their skills; and the soft skills in-house course that helps analytics teams to improve skills in communication, collaboration and interaction with business stakeholders. New corporate membership options allow analytics-savvy organisations to demonstrate their commitment to enhancing analytics capability, advancing the careers of team members and promoting data-driven decision-making.
Annette holds a Bachelors and Masters in Marketing.
