  • 2. About this Yearbook This Yearbook has been printed using 9Lives 80 stock paper in line with ANZ’s commitment to reduce its environmental footprint. 9Lives 80 contains 80% post consumer fibre and 20% chlorine free pulp (i.e. pulp bleached without the use of chlorine chemicals), all of which is sourced from sustainable forests. 9Lives 80 is manufactured by an ISO 14001 certified mill — an environmental standard recognised worldwide. The 2007 graduates are proud to be part of ANZ’s environmental commitment. This yearbook is produced by Australian graduates, for Australian graduates. Future editions of the yearbook will be a collaborative venture between all countries of ANZ participating in the graduate program. Internal Use Only

The size and vitality of our Graduate Program has been a particularly important development for us here, and I’m delighted we have increased the recruitment of high quality grads, but also enabled thousands of people here to study for degrees. It is from this foundation that our future leaders will emerge. In my conversation with grads, one of the questions that comes up most often is how to find a good balance between work and life otherwise. I simply say “get a life and be good at work”. The problem is, work is really important but there are other important things in life also. You have a family, friends and at some stage a partner. You might also want to excel in sport, to play the violin, to read the works of great authors, or to travel the world. At the same time, you need to be at the peak of health and fitness, physically, mentally and spiritually. The problem is not only fitting in all of these important roles, but also doing them all well.

Congratulations to the “Class of ’07” for initiating this inaugural Yearbook.

  • 13.

For those brave enough, networking opportunities extended to Transport Bar, Phoenix, Bimbo’s or Cookie. The themed bowling night was the crowning event of the week. A chance for all to relax and put the various skills learnt throughout the week to the test, all whilst living those ANZ values. Where else could a clown, a flapper girl, a soccer player, a tennis player, the All Blacks Rugby team and the pilots from Top Gun share a few drinks, laughs, and stories while not feeling completely foolish! There were even some who attempted karaoke! Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. What we all realised is that networking is not just uncovering opportunities, identifying landmines and learning best practices. It is having fun with newfound friends, sharing jokes and having Michelle Sichlau, Anthony Pati and Athena Lin pose for the camera. interesting discussions.

Real business case studies, Breakout and the MOBCO simulation coupled with learning on personal development gave us all a taste of some of the issues we will need to deal with in our careers.

After skimming through the project outline we knew we had struck gold. Our project was titled ‘Clarity and simplicity’ and asked us to evaluate ANZ’s current brochures.

  • 19. Tech exposure Written by Simran Kaur ‘Building Networks’ has become the motto for the graduates. Having just started out on our second rotation, most of us have come to rely on our networks to know exactly what is happening and how to go about making things happen.

Technologies (MT) in a Support role. When I first received my job description, I was quite daunted — firstly because I had no experience working on the platform and secondly because I was sure the team would expect me to pull my weight and begin writing code right away. Boy, was I wrong! The team over at MT has been very supportive and encouraging. Never did I once feel that my ‘limited’ mainframe abilities were being frowned upon. I was provided with training, manuals and support, left, right and centre, which made my whole experience within the team terrific. Everyone was welcoming in accepting my queries — and blank looks — and took the effort to slow down to explain various tasks and processes to me. Heading for lunches together, going for walks around the ‘Tan’, or just meeting up for a few glasses of red at Vintage Cellars are just a few examples of how we spent some of our afternoons. The majority of my immediate team members joined as graduates a few years ago, so it was good to join a gang who knew exactly where I came from. The support system, including both the team and ANZ overall, has been awesome. 9

The Finance world within ANZ is diverse and extensive. Therefore the fourteen graduates that are currently in the program for 2007 can move into various roles across different divisions. This gives us exposure in both Group Financial Management and Business Unit Finance teams. For this year, the different areas that the graduates rotated through included Audit, Tax, Personal Division, Institutional and Corporate Centre. During the first year, all the graduates had the opportunity to network and research these different areas to help us make the decision of what direction we would ultimately like to move our careers into. This allowed us to make a more informed decision about the type of areas we were interested in, and the sort of experiences we wished to obtain.

Eight months later, my buddy and I still catch up and talk about issues, our work and our lives outside of ANZ. As the year closes, another set of graduates are being selected to join the program. Meeting them, I am reminded of how much I have developed. Just months ago I was the timid newcomer, apologetic and shy. It is now my turn to be the familiar face, the respondent to all those questions and the invaluable source of confidence that helped me settle in so quickly.

The TGA was officially launched in April this year, and within months its membership jumped from five (founding members: Arthur Oz, Garry Sien, Gavin Oh, Stephanie Tong and Steven Ta) to over 200. Since April, the TGA has had a very successful launch event with the help of Peter Dalton (Chief Information Officer) and Kieran Griffiths (Group Manager, Enterprise Services). A trivia night organised by my fellow 2007 graduate, Alex Topaloski, along with successful breakfast sessions with TGA members provided the opportunity to meet other members, as well as Heads of Technology and General Managers of Technology. The TGA has also assisted in the set up of committees in India and New Zealand. Hopefully through the networks and The TGA team comprising of 2007 graduates Eugene, Nathaporn and David. relationships created by the committees across the campuses, ANZ Technology will be stronger. ANZ on campus Written by Ian Butler In March I was lucky enough to represent the ANZ Graduate Program at a Monash University careers fair. This was a very enjoyable experience not only because of the free Slurpees, but because it also gave me an opportunity to meet many keen students of different disciplines and year levels. The day was an excellent opportunity to educate students on the opportunities available to them at ANZ and let them meet actual graduates. It was also an opportunity to meet representatives from many other organisations all competing for the best graduates. I would recommend the experience to all 2007 graduates for the upcoming 2008 career fairs. It is time to spread the good word about your experience at ANZ!

Being part of the SMC committee has been a major challenge, yet thoroughly rewarding. It has allowed us to work alongside a fantastic group of fellow graduates from different departments and not only different cities but different countries — contacts that will no doubt be highly valuable in the future. One aspect that has been particularly interesting is that many of the graduates participating in the Stock Market Challenge have taken the challenge very seriously! A few interesting phone calls and emails have been received throughout the course of the SMC from participants arguing that they have either been hard done by or The Technology graduates visiting the Payments building in Richmond. arguing that they should not be penalised for something that has taken place.

  • 28. [ our Journey ] You never never know if you never never … ask Written by Rudi Mitutoiu Put your hand up. The end. Actually, let’s unpack that a little bit. Putting your hand up is not about answering a teacher’s question — those days are long gone. In your career with ANZ you will have many opportunities to get involved in various projects, meet people across the business and advance your career. But what happens if you’re having an opportunity drought? We often go through life waiting for people to tap us on the shoulder and offer us something. “Oh, I would get that dream job but I’m just waiting to get stuck with (insert name of boss) in the lift”. “If I could just have an opportunity to speak to them, then I’d have an entry point”. Or “if I knew someone that knew that person then I could be introduced”. And so the list goes... Kate Hathaway and Andrew Dowman take the opportunity to network. Sometimes this will happen — you’ll know someone who knows someone who can introduce you. But most of the time you won’t. Most of the time, you will need to tackle the dreaded task of actually talking to that person yourself. It gets easier over time the more you practise. But one thing is for sure — it pays off. If you want to see what they do in Private Bank, call a Private Banker. Simple. Ask if you can shout them a coffee and talk to them about their role. Will everyone say yes? No. Will everyone say no? No. We are so afraid of getting knocked back that we miss out on fantastic experiences because we just don’t give it a go. I have spoken to heads of businesses, managing directors and even John McFarlane (ANZ’s former Chief Executive Officer), and I can attest to the fact that none of them bite — in fact, they’re very nice. They say that the simple things in life are often the best. That saying has stood the test of time for a reason — it’s true. Be honest, open and enthusiastic. Pick up the phone and call that person you’ve been meaning to. You’ll find that ANZ is an extremely open and friendly organisation and most of the staff are extremely approachable. People will give you a go if you let them know you’re interested. I can tell you from experience, there’s no substitute for putting your hand up. We’re a friendly bunch at ANZ. 28

I’d never had an ‘office job’ before, and when I told people I was going to work at a bank my friends tactfully pointed out that I needed to consider that working in a bank would involve ironing my clothes and brushing my hair every day! Before starting this job I thought that I would stand out by being older than most of the graduates. So, it was a good surprise for me to arrive at GO Week and discover that there were quite a few people my age who had come to the graduate program from directions other than the traditional ‘school-uni-first job’ path. All in all, I think that coming to the program with different experiences actually opens up what you can do within your career. While the specific skills you have picked up may not directly be used in banking, many broader skills like time management, persistence and the ability to relate to people from different backgrounds will be useful in any field. You also have a firmer idea of what areas and types of work you are suited to and interested in pursuing. Shannon Byrne presenting at the Graduate Project Showcase. 29

I believe it’s the whole experience, from the moment you reach the airport to the moment you touch down on the tarmac. It’s checking in your luggage; buying a magazine for the trip; making it through the security checkpoint without a ‘beep’; collecting your recycled headsets; the smell of the food once the plane has ascended into the sky; gazing through the window at the fairy floss-like-clouds and it’s also about getting out of the office to enjoy a change of scenery. For those starting out in their career, it’s kind of like being a child at their birthday party.

As much as I love to travel, to meet new people and better understand other cultures through firsthand experience, living and working in Asia still raises many questions for me. Although I have traipsed through Vietnam, from the spectacular Ha Long Bay to the mountainous region of Sapa, I am unsure about the corporate atmosphere and culture that exists in Asia.

  • 39. [ our Community ] Think Tank Written by Sandi Chen The Business Process Think Tank committee was set up as an initiative to promote re-engineering business processes to help reduce paper consumption/waste. As part of the committee for Project PAW (People Against Waste), a half-day workshop was coordinated for graduates and executives to be able to take these ideas back to their business units for evaluation and adoption. The outcome of the Think Tank will be used to drive long-term waste consumption reductions across ANZ under the umbrella of the Sustainability team’s initiatives and also individual business unit drives. Jana Blair from WWF outlines strategies for creating a paperless office. The Think Tank committee at the steps of Queen St. Graduates power green machine Written by Shannon Sali In early 2007, Karina Yozefovich and Shannon Sali embarked on a mission. Their mission was to make a difference to ANZ as an organisation and more importantly have an effect on the community in terms of its environmental footprint. The primary objective of the mission, should they choose to accept it, was to reduce ANZ’s environmental footprint by reducing waste to landfill. It would be a tricky mission, one that would include many challenges like negotiating contracts with sponsors and educating staff that there was life after desk bins. Through weeks of pain, struggle, sweat, tears, and interesting emails, Karina and Shannon successfully completed their mission of reducing the pilot floors’ waste to landfill by an incredible 0 per cent! Their pilot’s success was so well received that Peter Dalton, Chief Information Officer, Reducing our environmental footprint will preserve places like this. gave the green light to continue the mission and take forth the message to others. With another highly successful mission under their belt, Karina and Shannon can now rest easy knowing that they have taken a forward step in making the organisation a better place for not only the staff but also for the wider community and environment. 0

At ANZ, work-life balance is highly encouraged and supported, allowing employees to work non-traditional and flexible hours that fit their lifestyle, family and personal commitments. Since working at ANZ, I have experienced a company culture that has far exceeded my expectations. ‘Work and life balance’, ‘fun’ and ‘different’ are some of the keywords that my peers and I would use to describe ANZ. The culture also encourages each of us to be unique and be comfortable in “bringing our whole selves to work”. Activities such as the Technology Unplugged Sports Day and the Breakout Festival really help make working at ANZ a fun experience. Team Turkey champions of the 2007 Technology Unplugged sports day.

Since meeting the other graduates at GO Week, I’m not sure that there has been a Friday night that has gone by without some sort of graduate get-together. From CQ to Word, Marrakech to The Apartment, 6Links to karaoke and all places in-between, the venues may vary, but the sense of excitement that the weekend has arrived is always palpable. FNDs provide a great opportunity to unwind and debrief on the week just passed and ‘shoot the breeze’ about all sorts of topics. Memories have been created (and sometimes forgotten) over a few beers, orange juices, lemonades and wines. It is great to be friends with graduates from all over the bank, and as we don’t work together day-to-day, the regularity of FNDs is a great opportunity to stay in touch and network. FNDs are not just limited to graduates. We welcome non-graduates from ANZ, friends from other organisations, states and even countries. In short, FNDs are a great way to expand your social circle. The regularity of FNDs is comforting; if there has been no email sent out by Sarah Palmer, Sarah White, Lloyd Stone and Clare Hicks have FUN @ FND.

  • 56. Network connection Written by Justin Hadgkiss As a graduate and an ANZ staff member you are privileged to have such a great social network to experience. Looking back to the start of our graduate year, GO Week proved an excellent opportunity to meet and get to know other graduates, including those from different divisions, states and countries. One of the first activities we undertook was to establish who was born where. After various countries and states were knocked off, we found that barely any one was originally from Melbourne! The diversity of people I have met at ANZ has been both a surprising and wonderful thing. Sarah Trask, Justin Hadgkiss, Rachael Seeto and Lloyd Stone get chummy. After GO Week, the socialising did not stop. Discussions over lunch, a quiet after work drink on a Friday, karaoke, movie, comedy nights, and fundraisers are just part of it. In addition to these events organised by the graduates, there are interesting conferences, volunteering days, sports days, three invaluable learning labs, team events and much more that you can participate in. All I can say is – don’t be a stranger! Make some friends and get involved. ANZ is all about work-life balance and a great social network helps you to enjoy your job even more. It also means that you get to find out the happenings in other areas, share experiences and ultimately find out where best suits you at ANZ!

Our third event featured the then CEO, John McFarlane, talking on the topic ‘The Secret of My Success’. This also provided us with the opportunity to ask him questions about work, life and the work-life balance. In addition to these Melbourne events, we have also hosted events nationally.

The first night was ignited with trivia, music quiz and merry dancing. Everyone, surrounded by laughter, was so relaxed to engage in these activities while tasting fantastic food and sipping rich reds or crisp whites. It’s said that the best offsites are born from serious discussions about business objectives. The second day seemed a perfect match of the saying. On the outset of the day, Internal Audit General Manager Richard Moore crystallised our thinking and knowledge into a concrete Internal Audit strategic vision, which I originally thought would be a monotonous session but turned out to be very impressive and worthwhile.

I found out I was pregnant at 21, and had my son Eli eleven days before my university graduation, at 22 — admittedly not an overly surprising age to have children, but in Australia the average age for a mother to have her first child is 32, so I felt very young. I still do. The day Eli was born, all our lives changed for the better. For the much better! We were all much happier than we had ever been before. It’s hard to explain, but there was a lot more love around. Not only towards Eli, but towards each other as well. My relationship with my partner Rob grew enormously. He is such a proud and involved father. You can’t help but love a man more when he comes home from work and changes a dirty nappy while still wearing a suit and tie. Hope and her adorable son Eli.

This disaster resulted in a 32-month hiatus in the NASA shuttle program but more significantly a major loss of reputation to NASA and the government. A Commission into the accident found that NASA’s organisational culture and decision-making processes had been a key contributing factor to the accident. NASA was under pressure to launch the shuttle because of an extensive flight schedule and, among other things, television ratings. The key error was that even though senior managers had known that contractor Michael and his manager understanding risk. Morton Thiokol’s design of the boosters contained a potentially catastrophic flaw, they failed to address it properly. This led the Commission to conclude that the Challenger disaster was ‘an accident rooted in history’. Breaking the vault isn’t that easy Grace. 64
