Ann Burns

Resources Lead, ANZ, Accenture

Ann Burns, leader of Accenture’s Resources team for Australia and New Zealand, helping mining, chemicals, energy, utilities and water companies adapt and thrive as they face the disruptive changes and seismic shifts in industry dynamics.

Ann’s real passion is in finding answers to the challenging questions that digital innovation is asking: If digital is inevitably going to be the catalyst for change how do you avoid digital disappointment? How do you manage an ambidextrous organisation with the old world and new world in parallel? Can data truly be monestised? How best to elevate people with the use of technology and create exceptional workforce experiences? These are big and exciting questions. It’s a fascinating time to be working in the resources industry.
