5 minutes with Brodie Thomson


Why accounting?

I have always had an interest in money, investments and savings. Growing up around the family business I have learnt about these concepts from an early age.

What do you love about your job?

I love working with people that are taking control of their own retirement plan and are getting excited about their super.

It’s an ever-changing career and the skills you learn can be applied to most things in life. There is always something new to learn or a better way things can be done.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

If you have a goal in life work hard and make it happen.

How would you describe what you do to a five-year-old child?

I help people manage their money.



How will you be spending Christmas day?

Over indulging in good food and drink with family and friends.

Where’s your favourite place in the world?

Anywhere by the water, river or ocean with a rod and beer in my hand! Broome, Mykonos or by the Murray.

What’s your view on re-gifting presents?

Normally I would say no way. However, this year I’m re gifting the Barefoot Investor to my dad amongst other presents.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

Ben Simmons – he has his whole career in front of him and I would love to be able to do what he does on the basketball court!
