Paul Harrison is Telstra’s National Emergency Response Manager and is a critical member of Telstra’s Major Incident Management and Global Operations Team, preparing, monitoring and responding to emergency threats and impact on Telstra networks. Paul’s career with Telstra began 35 years ago as an apprentice technician for the then Telecom, in his home town of Ballarat. Since that time, Paul’s career has provided him the great opportunity to have worked in and across a variety of Customer facing, Network Operations and Leadership roles. The wealth of knowledge and experience accumulated both within Telstra and through wider industry engagements have provided the foundation, knowledge, and leadership required in the highly challenging role of National Emergency Response Manager.
Things that motivate Paul outside of work include motorcycles, music, and his love of exploring the most remote parts of Australia in his 4WD with his family.
