Phil Burgess, GMD, Public Policy & Communications, Telstra, 10 September 2008

CEO Boardroom

Phil Burgess addressed a boardroom lunch for 90 of the Chamber's key supporters in Sydney on 'Moving Australia to the Fast Lane' - our digital future, and the challenges and opportunities our economy faces. This event was generously partnered by Mallesons Stephen Jaques.

After 3 years at Telstra where he has been responsible for regulatory affairs, government relations, media relations, corporate affairs and the $5.5 million Telstra Foundation, Phil Burgess returns to the USA next month.

Telstra CEO, Sol Trujillo, said: "I have always valued Phil's advice and his principled approach to public policy and communications. Phil has great integrity and has not been afraid to show leadership, often speaking the truth even when it was inconvenient for established interests to hear it. Phil has consistently spoken out with great passion and courage, articulating how a national high-speed broadband network would produce enormous benefits for communities and the national economy.”
