In her role, Liz oversees a global network of more than 5,000 government, healthcare and infrastructure consultants in KPMG member firms in more than 140 countries and territories. She uses global and local insights to help firms’ clients address challenges with the aim of producing better outcomes for citizens and the communities within which they reside.
Liz has more than15 years’ public sector work experience. She started her career as a social worker and then moved into management consulting. Liz joined KPMG in 2002 and established the Australian firm’s Health, Ageing and Human Services practice and went on to lead the sector at a national level in 2013 for 5 years.
Liz’s driving passion is health and social policy reform. Her work has predominantly focused on issues related to disadvantage, disability and vulnerability. This work has included strategy, policy development, program design and reform, service improvement, resource allocation and funding methodologies and evaluation.
Liz believes a positive and inclusive approach is essential to success: “It’s a matter of seeing the opportunity not the constraint. It’s about trying to find the one or two or three things that will move an issue forward. That includes bringing your stakeholders along with you. You can solve the problem at a theoretical level but changes in behavior, in a system, in practice, all have to align and that’s a complicated thing to do.”
