ATA announces more speakers for Trucking Australia 2013

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has announced that two leading Canberra insiders, Jannette Cotterell and Glenn Milne, will share their ideas at Trucking Australia 2013.

Cotterell is the Managing Director of Executive Counsel Australia, a non-politically aligned advocacy firm that is highly regarded by all sides of politics. She has designed and run many sensitive lobbying and communications campaigns, including a campaign on behalf of cancer patients, doctors and community pharmacists to overturn a $300 million budget cut.

“This has proved to be one of the most unpredictable Parliaments in modern history for industry groups to navigate through and achieve their goals,” Cotterell said. “Executive Counsel Australia looks forward to providing delegates with the tools to get what they want – and position themselves for this year’s election and beyond.”

Milne has covered Canberra politics for more than two decades, including as the political editor of The Australian, the Seven network and News Ltd’s Sunday newspapers. A Walkley Award, Logie and News Award winner, he is recognised as one of the most informed political commentators in Australia.

“The media is undergoing profound change at a dizzying pace,” Milne said. “Any sector that fails to understand these changes will be left behind, along with their goals and their profitability. At this conference I’ll be helping you to stay ahead of the media game – and your competitors.”

According to the ATA, Cotterell and Milne will highlight how the industry can get the wheels of government turning to get a better deal. Joining the two insiders will be Queensland Trucking Association CEO Peter Garske, who will run separate breakout groups where delegates can plan how to get action on some of the key ideas from the event.
