Donna Worthington
Partner, MinterEllison Consulting, Sydney
I have a strong record in delivering complex regulatory, risk and compliance programs. I bring a blended background of working in industry and consulting, having worked in Big 4 consulting and for large ASX50 Financial Services institutions in executive management roles in both operational and risk management roles

I advise clients on risk and regulatory projects, with particular expertise in governance, accountability and conduct issues. My previous experience includes working for a Big 4 consulting firm providing advisory and assurance services in relation to risk, regulation, business transformation and customer experience. I bring extensive experience in risk management, process improvement, strategic planning and delivery on large-scale projects within financial services institutions. My diverse skillset and experience means that clients often work with me in a ‘trouble shooter’ capacity, working on complex, highly sensitive engagements.

Career highlights

Since joining MinterEllison, I have led the APRA prudential self-assessment for leading financial services institutions reviewing governance, culture and accountability practices. I have worked on sensitive engagements reporting to Executive and Board level. I am valued for my ability to ‘cut through’ quickly to the issue or matter at hand requiring resolution, my ability to develop innovative and pragmatic solutions and my humanistic approach to the way I engage with people at all levels.
