Yi Dong (Terry) Wu

Senior Business Analyst & Certified SAFe 4.0 Advanced AGILE Scrum Master - Digital & Mobile Project Delivery at Westpac

A Sr. Business Analyst who has worked in a large variety of projects and assignments in the banking, accounting, auditing, risk analysis, digital/enterprise technology, business and product spaces.

I bring to the table a unique variety of experiences, skills and knowledge relating to business, technology, operations, risk, finance and of course all fundamental business analysis competencies. This is in addition to my educational background of finance, accounting and engineering, which has influenced me to have a very technical and analytical approach to my work.

My working experiences started with internal auditing at KPMG, which not only allowed me to experience the fundamental business and financial aspects of various companies from a multitude of industries, including but not limited to; enterprise technology, retail, agriculture, digital design and development, engineering, utilities/infrastructure and finance to name a few.

Eventually I moved onto banking and was fortunate enough to enter the St.George Graduate Program. This opportunity allowed me to move across various and vastly different areas of the bank and gained a multitude of experience and knowledge, ranging from building million dollar deals with the front-line Corporate and business bankers, to implementing hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of trades with the financial markets teams and eventually developing and implementing strategic projects with the Business Segments team.

My eventual transition into business analysis in Westpac's Program delivery business was due to my personal passion and interest in technology and also recognizing the current business landscape where there is greater emphasis on digital adoption and evolution

Since then, I have spent several years working on a several multi-million dollar projects for Westpac, helping deliver business, product and technological strategic solutions that have produced stellar customer experience and business results.
