Swimming against the tide

Written on the 17 June 2009

THE AICD is presenting a breakfast featuring Bank of Queensland boss David Liddy. Liddy will talk up Australia’s fastest growing retail bank and one that has reached its success by swimming against the tide. The breakfast will cover the global financial crisis and its impact on the Australian economy, specifically the Australian banking sector. Liddy will discuss consolidation in the Australian banking industry and its impact on Bank of Queensland and how operating a ‘locally run’ business model targeting local customers can put you ahead of the pack in a field of national giants.

Liddy was appointed managing director of Bank of Queensland in April 2001. The bank has since recorded a succession of record half-year and full-year profits which has occurred through a complete transformation of the bank, with the opening of new branches and a return to more traditional, face-to-face, people-focused business and commercial banking services.

The breakfast is on July 2 at Novotel Twin Waters, Ocean Drive Twin Waters, from 7am to 9am.
