Margaret Manning OBE, Partner
EY Digital Pte Ltd, Singapore
Margaret Manning is a Partner at EY Digital. EY is a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services. Formerly the CEO of Adelphi Digital Group, Margaret and her team are extremely excited to be joining EY in both Australia and Singapore. “EY has a very strong innovation consulting culture, which is a great match with our heritage in digital transformation and user experience design,” says Margaret. Adelphi Digital was a U.K. digital consulting company trading mostly in Asia Pacific. It was set up through an MBI of the Singapore and Australia offices of Reading Room, one of the UK’s largest digital agencies. With offices in Australia, Thailand, and Singapore, Adelphi Digital worked with clients from the USA, the Middle East, and across the Asia Pacific region.
Outside of work, Margaret Manning adores red wine, and is a self-confessed geek. Her fascination with programming and gaming started at University, and now manifests as a deep and unbreakable bond with her iPad. Margaret’s lifelong pursuit of online gaming, a degree in psychology (specializing in artificial intelligence), and a management-consultancy background with PwC, have together led Margaret to a special interest in online communications. She particularly enjoys exploring how new forms of communication are changing the way business works in fundamental ways and sees the increasing acceptance of agile business is one clear example that the old ways are changing.
In June 2015, Margaret received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for her services to export to Singapore and the wider Asia-Pacific region. She remains committed to helping SMEs from any region to expand both nationally and internationally. In Margaret’s own words: “I was lucky enough to have great mentors over the years and it’s a favor I would like to pay back to young business leaders.”
