ALLCONNEX CEO CANCELS SPEAKING COMMITMENT

ALLCONNEX chief executive Kim Wood (pictured) has withdrawn as a speaker at the Australian Institute of Company Director’s (AICD) members event today at the Gold Coast Convention Centre.

In a statement, the AICD said that: ‘due to issues outside of our control, Allconnex Water, CEO, Mr Kim Wood has unfortunately withdrawn as our presenter’.

Wood is maintaining a low profile, following a decision by Queensland Premier Anna Bligh last week to ‘end the blame game’ over pricing and impose measures to enable local governments to accept responsibility for water pricing.

Gold Coast City Council is yet to decide whether the economic wrangle, reported to cost $100 million, is worth disbanding the organisation for.

Meanwhile the AICD has found a late replacement for Wood in Bronwyn Morris from the 2018 Commonwealth Games Gold Coast Bid Committee.

Morris will share her insights on the committee, the progress of the Commonwealth Games bid, and what a successful bid will mean for the Gold Coast region.

She is a professional non-executive director and a director of Spotless Group Limited, QIC Limited, RACQ, and Care Australia. She is also a member of the Australian Advisory Committee of Parsons Brinckerhoff and a councillor of the Queensland Division of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
