How Jenelle is building a better working world

“As a client-facing leader, I work with my clients, helping them address their biggest people challenges and answer important questions, such as what skills will they need in the future and what’s the organizations’ role in preparing them for that, how can people make safer decisions while taking risks and being innovative, and how can organizations not just keep up with the pace of change but lead through it.

As the Markets leader, I work with my teams to unlock the power of the organization, helping EY clients solve critical challenges, including the infrastructure and energy needs of Australia and New Zealand as well as the needs of our citizens and consumers.”
