Let me introduce myself: My name is Amy. I like to talk. And tell stories. I do most things fast. I'm excited by change and the possibility of tomorrow.
Here are some other things about me: - 15+ years in communications and government relations across the private and public sector - Experience in markets spanning APAC, U.S, and EMEA - I call Australia home but spend a lot of time on planes
