Bryan Bloomfield, CEO, Grenadier Real Estate Ltd, thanked Alistair for his entertaining and informative talk.

"I wanted to say thank you once again for speaking to our team this week. It was a great presentation and the feedback has been very positive," said Mr Bloomfield.

"A large number of our people have told me how much they enjoyed the presentation and found the story of JG Russell fascinating."

Alistair's research interests include tax administration, compliance, ethics and taxation history. He is a member of the Taxation Interest Group and teaches accounting and taxation at UC.
