During the last 12 years, as a Director at Microsoft Australia, Brett drove significant growth in an emerging division of the business. His much sought-after leadership involved driving results through team coaching and simplification of processes and interactions with channel partners. Brett’s contributions to the Microsoft business have left a global impression. His work is recognised in the international arena to this day with many current global programs and processes designed and implemented from Australia. In addition, with the recent increase in remote work, Brett has led many organisations through the process of moving to hybrid workstyles, using technology, space and culture to support successful adoption.
Prior to Microsoft, Brett held senior roles with Palm Inc, LG Australia and Telstra, leading sales, marketing and channel teams in Telecommunications and Hardware markets.
Brett is passionate about culture in the workplace and the impact this has on people and business performance. His success is measured through his results in building sustainable business models as well as the growth of people through active learning and coaching.
Brett lives on the Northern Beaches of Sydney with his wife and two daughters. Despite his prowess on the corporate stage, Brett is in his true element when on the humble grounds of nature. He draws great pleasure from baking artisan breads and has both a knack and a passion for all things cooked with fire. Virtual platforms are his professional playground, but as he is one to practice what he preaches, he also knows the value of work-life balance and enjoys recharging the soul through his love of boating and being outdoors with his family.
