The Inner Chief

Apr 5, 2022

In this episode of The Inner Chief podcast, you’ll hear from Izzy Silva, MD, APAC at Wolters Kluwer, on using EQ to good effect, making the vision visible, and data-led decision-making.


Izzy was born in Sri Lanka, moved to New Zealand when he was 9 but has called Australia home for the last 25 years.

He is currently the MD in the APAC region of Wolters Kluwer, a global information services and solutions provider focusing on health, tax and accounting, risk and compliance, finance and legal sectors.

Since graduating from Monash University with a Bachelor of Information Management & Systems, Izzy’s career has seen him take on roles at well-known organisations such as HP, Deloitte Australia, Telstra and Equifax.

His first CEO role came at GetCreditScore, a start-up based in Sydney. He has been at Wolters Kluwer APAC for nearly 4 years, having been promoted to MD from Chief Commercial Officer in late 2018.

In this episode we talk about:

  • How his EQ is his secret sauce and how he uses it to lead change;
  • Living and breathing the vision and setting the example;
  • Why data is the key to realising client and company value; and
  • The technological future of privacy, diversity and creativity.
