The Crescent Club was proud to welcome Mr Cameron Clyne, CEO of National Australia Bank on Monday 18th June 2012 to present at the 3rd installment of the Crescent Club Executive Series. Again we thank our gracious hosts, Corrs Chambers Westgarth and especially Michael Chaya, a Partner in the firm's corporate advisory practice.
Some may not know this but Cameron was the youngest ever partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, at age 26. And, at 40, he was made NAB's youngest ever CEO.
After taking over as CEO, one of the first things Cameron Clyne did was to pull down the partitions separating workers. And he sits at a work station similar to that of his 35,000+ staff. It's this kind of approach that seems to set him apart (well, in addition to being 198 centimetres and requiring the mic to be adjusted when he speaks!).
The Crescent Club audience heard directly from Cameron Clyne as he spoke openly about his time growing up in Sydney's west and his thoughts on career development and leadership, especially whilst working at large multi-national corporations.
