FYI, this story is more than a year old

The Tax Institute is hosting Dominic Price, ‘Team Doctor’ and Work Futurist at Atlassian, as the closing speaker at The Tax Summit, the must-attend tax event of the year, to be held from 19-21 October in Sydney. 

Given the challenges the past few years have presented with the pandemic, the Great Resignation and the rise of remote and hybrid styles of working, ‘Team Doctor’ and Work Futurist at Atlassian Dominic Price cuts through the noise to design collaborative patterns that are easily adaptable for any purpose and organisation.

Atlassian made waves as one of the first companies to take the bold step of closing offices indefinitely and transitioning all staff to work remotely at the height of the pandemic. An in-demand media commentator and keynote speaker, Price is revered for his ability to inspire people to transform their working lives and futures. 

In the lead up to The Tax Summit 2022, presented by The Tax Institute, Dominic Price, ‘Price shares a “goodie bag” of pragmatic, tried-and-true tips that leaders can action to become a better leader, manager, teammate and professional in the modern work environment:

  • Onboard new team members remotely
  • Distribute ways of working and build effective teams
  • Focus on intentional togetherness and psychological safety in new teams
  • Have less meetings
  • Working across timezones to improve inclusion

“I’ve been working with teams across the globe to build cohesion and identity in an environment where none of them have ever met before physically. And it’s very doable. Many organisations just don’t have the muscle to do it. Building that muscle starts with becoming a good teammate and working within the limitations of our environments by tweaking our mindset,” says Price. 

“My goal in life is to get people to connect across an organisation. We find true community where there’s diversity and inclusion. When you have those differences of opinion and get them to work together, that’s where the magic happens. There is so much opportunity for everyone to do a few degrees better every week. It has the potential to drive huge sustainable improvements.”

The Tax Institute’s President, Jerome Tse, CTA, says, “We are delighted to have Dominic join us at The Tax Institute’s Tax Summit event. Dominic’s ideas on community, inclusion and diversity echo some of our key priorities at the Institute and in the tax profession broadly. As our closing keynote speaker, everyone is sure to find value in his inspiring thoughts on these topics.

“This three-day experience is a unique opportunity to connect in-person with fellow practitioners and explore perspectives from around the world of tax as we look ahead to a bright future shared – and shaped – together.”

Price joins a compelling speaker lineup of the nation's most forward-thinking minds, including Allegra Spender, MP; Leigh Sales, AM; Jeremy Hirschhorn; The Hon Malcolm Turnbull, AC, Australia’s 29th Prime Minister; and many more. With a theme of “Shine Together”, The Tax Summit will be held at The International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney and see attendees, ranging from taxation specialists, accountants, newcomer tax professionals, business leaders as well as anyone with an interest in the latest issues impacting businesses on a local and global scale. 

The Tax Institute is the leading forum for the tax community in Australia. It is committed to furthering tax education, representing its members, and continuously improving the tax system for the benefit of all.
