Naked Leader Week 996 – 24 October 2022

Thank You Australia And New Zealand

As you read this I prepare to return to the UK after an amazing seven months in Veolia ANZ

Thank you to CEO Richard Kirkman and everyone in the company for looking after me, for your open minds and the incredible range of ambitious Outcomes you have taken on board.

Last week I was asked for the single biggest wow that I have experienced while being here. The people aside, it is without a doubt the modern era’s acknowledgement to their respective first people – Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders; and The Māori – the Indigenous Polynesian people of mainland New Zealand (Aotearoa).

A special thanks to Graham Kilby,  Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)  Program Manager, New Zealand / Australia

An example of this acknowledgement is from Sydney Opera House, displayed on posters, in programmes and spoken before every performance:

‘The Sydney Opera House honours our First Nations by fostering a shared sense of belonging for all Australians, and we acknowledge the Gadigal, traditional custodians of Tubowgule, the land on which the Opera House stands.’

With my love and best wishes to everyone I have met, for your care, kindness and great humour

And to you all

David X
