Re: Newsletter to CPA Spillers - 4th December 2017

Well it's been a long time coming, but I can finally confirm that the Spillers will have their voices heard in a meeting with our new President, Peter Wilson, next Monday 11th December. I can only imagine the lip service that would have been given - especially with the latest Statement from the CPA...

Any lawyer worth their salt will say that it was intended to "promote excellence, enterprise and integrity". The sentence includes "amongst members" CPA Advice does nothing of the sort.

Re: AFR 7 Aug 2017 - Inside story of Alex Malley's final days at CPA Australia

I think we should all acknowledge the good work that Brett Stevenson has done. His courage and efforts have brought the CPA Board and its executive to its knees, thus clearing the path for the organization to claw back from the mess Malley/Graeme et al created. Sure there is some work to be done - ...

Yeah they paid him out about 3 years in advance without even a thought about transitioning the strategy or salvaging anything from it.

I'm sure they wanted him out so that the independent review would not interview him.
