Merry Christmas to Peter Wilson. When it was suggested that Peter Wilson should be independent of the old board so that we can have a fresh start Peter responded with "That's your issue". Summary of the meeting here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=594

The Naked CEO - Have you noted the change

Post by Time4Change » Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:55 am

Has anyone noted the changed, the Naked CEO which the board has been talking that they had trademarks all over it has now been renamed wait for it wait for it - "Your 24/7 Career Mentor"

And now it no more has the the yellow chair and the layout and color has all changed, which is so questionable. It now has the CPA logo on the front page and promote "Become a CPA" Which mean after all those years the board knew they were promoting Alex and paying from our money to promote himself and also paying for his TV show. The Naked CEO was launched in 2012 and we have been paying to promote Alex while we members here are paying excessive CPD and membership fees which barely any value to us full members. So if you still believe that the current board is trying to repair this mess, then you are lying to yourself, as since 2012 they have been moving CPA away from its core which is us members or even prior to that.

I completely agree Time4Change.
They just don't get it.
This is why the CPA board needs to go, and I would suggest a major refresh at Head Office needs to occur.
This is a major culture problem for CPA, and rebadging a woeful book is just continuing with the same marketing strategy with a superficial change.
We need to make a dramatic statement to the membership and to the world that things have changed at CPA Australia, and to think they imagine a title/cover change to a book, and rebadging an already questionable program will do it is just nonsense.
Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

I listened to the radio interview of Mr. Malley on the deplorables show, and when he was disparaging the CPA members who have questioned his self promotion and direction he has taken the CPAA, he commented on the lives and careers of these individuals as if he has specific and detailed information on individuals. He also made a comment about a person who wrote a criticism of him on this site saying he was a 58 year old director of finance and other specifics about him. Does this mean that the CPAA board and senior management are investigating members who are openly challenging them. Is CPAA gathering personal information on the members that are questioning the past 7 years of board and management decisions. Has the CPAA become an intelligence spy gathering organisation using membership fee revenues to investigate those who threaten to expose their schemes and gravy train of stealing millions of dollars ? If so, this is creepy and intimidating and another matter for the reviewers to look into.

Mr Malley also made comments about his name being not Malley but a "Wog" name and that he might take some revenge as a "Wog" would do to those that disparaged him. First of all this is a criminal offence of "uttering threats" and also a racist cultural slur against those that are of a non english speaking heritage, many of whom may also be members of the CPAA. This comments have been made publicly and are recorded. The police and a prosecutor should be contacted and a complaint made to stand up to this person and let him know that his behaviour is unacceptable and that he will be held accountable. I am currently traveling in the US and not able to take much action from here. Is there anyone that would be willing to take a stand against Mr. Malley for his comments?
