Frédéric Venière, FACCI member, has set up a French desk at TressCox Lawyers, FACCI’s new member
TressCox Lawyers, a new FACCI member, joined when I moved to the firm in January this year (I personally have been a FACCI member for the past three years).
TressCox Lawyers is a highly successful, specialist law firm that has operated in Australia since 1897. With 300 people spread over Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, the firm provides professional legal services to public and private sector organisations / companies and individuals in areas such as corporate and commercial law, litigation and dispute resolution, insurance, health, media and entertainment, building and construction, infrastructure, water, energy and resources and estate planning.
I joined the International Business Group of TressCox charged with the role of establishing a French desk among the existing Japanese, German and Scandinavian desks.
I am a French Avocat with a PhD in law and more than 25 years of experience in the international arena. Before migrating to Sydney with my Australian wife 4 years ago I worked for major Parisian law firms, advising clients on corporate and business law (new technology and telecommunications law, litigation drafting and negotiation of contracts for large corporations and governments). I also spent 4 years in Tahiti (French Polynesia) where I set up and managed a bureau for a prominent Parisian law firm, and more recently spent the last 3 years at a boutique Sydney law firm providing French-Australian legal solutions.
The French desk provides legal assistance to French companies operating or investing in Australia and supports Australian companies in their operations and investments in French speaking countries (e.g. France, as well as New Caledonia, French Polynesia and some African countries).
Our Sydney office is located on Level 20, 135 King Street, Sydney NSW 2000. Enquiries may be directed to me, Frédéric Venière, on 02 9228 9351 (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Interview of Bryn Sharp, Managing Director of Lyreco
• Could you please tell us more about your business?
Lyreco is a Global Leader in the supply of office products, with operations in 27 countries and world class standards in servicing our customers. Our national team looks after the needs of businesses across Australia and has done so since 1999. Our mission is to be the reference the business community turns to for office supplies solutions.
• Your company is present in 27 countries. What are the specificities of the Australian market?
What makes this market different is there are 3 other main competitors, 2 being global like Lyreco and the pure size of the company and the ability to service. As an example we have 6 DC’s in Australia, the highest in the Lyreco World and with overnight deliveries to all Metro areas, this demands a very efficient logistics procedure to be in place.
• What are the keys of Lyreco’s success?
Our model is built on people and relationships. Half our Australian team is involved in sales and this is the key fundamental driver for our business. We listen to our customers and adapt our service offering to meet their requests face to face. We also pride ourselves on our product offering where we provide an order fulfillment rate which is best in class.
• What are the keys of Lyreco’s success?
Like any company growth and profitability, we never hide behind the fact that we will drive performance internally and work with our customers to get greater market share at manageable levels of sustained growth and profit, after all this is what our shareholders expect and what motivates us every day.

Orange Business Services
Addressing IT Risks for the Extended Enterprise
During the year, the Orange Business Services group hold information sessions for enterprise. At these bi-annual events in Australia, you can expect to hear from ICT industry analysts and experts who focus on key IT issues faced by enterprise today.
We will be hosting our Sydney session - Addressing IT Risks for the Extended Enterprise - and you are welcome to join us for the event.
RSVPs are essential so please contact email@example.com to register.
Zero trust model and the extended enterprise - Forrester Research
You are part of an extended enterprise — a new extended ecosystem of customers, clouds, service providers, partners, supply chains, and empowered users. The business expects you, the security professional, to somehow magically secure this ever-expanding universe despite budget restrictions and compliance pressures. This new reality will force security professionals to realign strategies in new and more efficient ways and discard many legacy world views. This is particularly true of network security. We can no longer control the perimeter, control the number of users that must access the network, or lock down the devices that connect to the network. We must take a fundamentally new approach to network and device security.
Trusted work environment - Orange Business Services
In this session, we shall present the security solutions enterprise can adopt to mitigate the risks introduced by the extended enterprise. Solutions and services around user authentication, secure communications and mobile device security. If you are embarking on any Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), enterprise mobility initiatives, you will benefit from this session.
