Host Mundanara Bayles is guided by Aboriginal Terms of Reference which is the accumulated knowledge that Aboriginal people developed over the tens of thousands of years of living in this land, now known as Australia.

Relationships are at the core of Aboriginal Culture and Society and in our whole history of living in this country we never invaded our neighbours.

An Aboriginal Terms of Reference introduction is based on “Who you are and not what you do”, this way of introduction has been practiced by Aboriginal people since the first sunrise. From an Aboriginal perspective this way of introduction reinforces our humaness, we are much more than our job titles.

Tom Seymour is the CEO of PwC Australia . As CEO he leads a team of more than 700 partners and 8000 staff across PwC’s three businesses – Assurance, Financial Advisory and Consulting.

Tom is also the Chair of PwC’s Elevate Indigenous Reconciliation Action Plan, and a board member of Top Education Limited. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce from Queensland University of Technology, a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) from Bond University and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia. He lives in Brisbane with his wife Danielle and 3 children.

Never in a million years did I ever think I would have the chance to sit down and have a yarn with Tom Seymour, a man I talk about most days, delivering BlackCard workshops. You’ll hear how our relationship began at Garma 2019 and his and PwC’s involvement with BlackCard ever since. A great yarn not to be missed!
