Courtney Brown started her career within Australia’s first digital banking proposition, ING Direct. She is dynamic and performance oriented, always seeking to exceed expectations through accountable delivery. Passionate about a legacy for the next generation and those yet to come, her drive is to disrupt systems and business models whilst also advising Boards and Executives for how to prepare for the future. This future where IT security is like currency and where distributed ledgers and open-source systems will be the way Millennials will soon demand to work.
Reporting to a Board of Medical Practitioners from the age of 25, Courtney has an entrepreneurial mindset having established and grown digital sales within numerous organisations. She has an advanced understanding of governance, commercial strategy, financial services compliance and will always remain an advocate for the customer of today and the customer of the future.
She performs at her best when facilitating negotiations of difficult conversations. Or, to develop the best strategy considering all risks and angles. Her management approach is stewardship. The Millennial Group’s immense talent pool as a collective has no organisational structure and she encourages collaborations across borders and with partners to tackle emerging and known technology challenges.
Helping boards to communicate the ‘why’ for adoption of emerging tech and the need to be the leader or first follower rather than the disrupted is why Millennial came about.
And having returned to Sydney after years abroad and interstate, Courtney is preparing to deliver value back to her hometown and the Australian economy. It is her belief that from afar Australia can become an economic powerhouse leveraging our distance and destination draw cards for collaborative success.
