Having immigrated to Australia as a refugee from Vietnam in 1980, Liem has lived most of his life in Western Sydney and is a proud “Westie”.
Liem is passionate about building the public sector’s capability to work better with the community and the not-for-profit and private sectors to deliver lasting public value.
Liem is a graduate of the EMPA cohort of 2012. He won the EMPA 2012 Cohort Dean’s Prize and the Cisco Prize for top group marks in the Work Based Project. He has undergraduate degrees in Commerce (Finance major) and Law and is an admitted legal practitioner in NSW.
Between 2003 and 2022, Liem worked in the New South Wales public sector, in various strategic policy, communications and community engagement roles. His mix of central and line agency experience in high profile policy areas of drug, alcohol, climate change and road safety has provided an insight of the importance of bringing the community along to allow government to deliver public value.
Liem has a proven track record of collaboration, building and maintaining strong working relationships with other agencies, as well providing an environment for stakeholder involvement in developing, delivering and reviewing strategic directions. This includes the development of the NSW Road Safety Strategy, and Pedestrian, Cycling and Aboriginal safety action plans and development of a driver licensing access program for disadvantaged communities.
At Transport for NSW, Liem managed disruption communications, stakeholder engagement and business activation to minimise adverse impacts and bring the community along as the state undertook the biggest transport infrastructure program in decades. This included leading engagement and business activation to support construction and delivery of the Sydney Light Rail project.
