    Bill has been providing advice to major companies on their strategic issues for over 20 years. He began as a consultant to Pappas, Carter Evans and Koop (which became the Australian office of the Boston Consulting Group). He was also a Director at the spinoff company Australian Consulting Partners which was acquired by Arthur Andersen where he was a Partner in Business Consulting for two years. Bill has worked in industry policy at the state and federal level. He was the Industry Policy Advisor to the Victorian Minister for Industry and Commerce in the Cain Government and in that capacity assisted in the development of the first state economic strategy. He was later appointed as the Director of the Australian Manufacturing Council, a tripartite advisory body to the Federal Minister of Industry established by the Hon. John Button. Here he led a number of landmark reports on manufacturing which were influential in the opening up of the sector in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Bill is a Director of Colin Carter and Associates which evaluates the performance of the boards of directors of many of Australia’s leading public companies. He was also CEO of the Victorian WorkCover Authority for three years and has consulted in workers compensation in New South Wales and South Australia.
