Biography:
She started work for the Victorian Government in the Energy Reform Unit of Department of Treasury and Finance, a project unit working on privatisation of the Victorian energy industry (first electricity then gas). This project raised AUD 26 billion (in 1993) and gave her an inside view to mega projects. During the project she was engaged in managing the interface between the project team and government ministers. Towards the end of the project she was asked to advise on contingent liabilities arising from the process, She identified a number of risks associated with information management. Leaving her position with government she created her own consulting company, working on various projects with the energy industry, public sector psychiatrists and information management (specifically use of contractors and public records). During her recently completed Masters she considered the relationship between risk management, contractors records, partnerships and governmentality.
