Malcolm Alder is a strategy consultant who has worked in professional services for his whole career covering more than 30 years and has invested in digital businesses.  He has worked through all life cycle stages from initial exploration through start up and on to operations in both private and public sectors.

Outside work, Malcolm is a bit of a sports nut.  He’s a fairly keen golfer – particularly the Links variety – and still plays football (if you can believe that) and is a fan of both Sydney FC and his beloved West Ham.    Malcolm’s a Director of the LBW Trust which is a charity that supports under-privileged young men and women in developing countries receive a tertiary education that would otherwise be denied them.  Back in the day he was quite a keen thespian but has been “resting” for a number of years now.  Malcolm lives with his wife and two teenage children in Sydney in a house where his favourite feature is the wine cellar.
