Partner, KPMG Digital Delta

KPMG Australia

Barbara-Anne is KPMG Australia's National Energy & Natural Resources Technology Partner.

She identifies as a ‘versatilist’, who has enabled organisations in a number of countries achieve world class, high quality and sustainable business transformations through technology improvements and collaborative relationships with strategic vendors, including ERP, GIS, infrastructure and telecommunications major players. Barbara-Anne’s view is success is achieved through the connection of strategic direction and operational practicality in the development of these initiatives and the teams who make them successful.
