In Episode 11 of The Badminton Podcast, we focus on career. More specifically, a career in on of the BIG 4 Accounting Firms in the world.
At the time of recording, our guest, Saliya Gunaratne, is a Senior Manager on the road to potentially becoming a Partner.
He has been a part of badminton in Australia as both a player and coach over the last 15 years. In 2010, he was the winner men's doubles at the Australia National Championships and competed at the World Championships.
He now lives in Singapore with wife where he’s on Secondment, and he explains the pathway that someone would need to take to scale the corporate ladder in a BIG 4 accounting firm, and shares what helped him reach his current senior position.
While this episode is quite specific to a certain career path, it's something that's eye opening even for those who aren't in this field as the lessons that Saliya has learnt and shares are beneficial for anyone.

If you haven't realised by now, Jeff and I love badminton. How we feel when we play the sport, the rich experiences that it has given us and the rock-solid connections we form as part of a community. Speaking of connecting with people, in this podcast episode, we speak to Ferdi Mak. Ferdi is long-time friend of ours, who we would not have met if it weren't for badminton.
