They’ll Come, a Governor of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation, Patron of Healthy Bones Australia (formerly Osteoporosis Australia) and Non-Executive Director on the Board of not-for-profit Aurora Education Foundation.

Helen worked as a reporter at the Nine Network for nearly 20 years before spending 11 years at Sky News Australia as a host, anchor and interviewer. She co-anchored the coverage of four consecutive Federal election campaigns and hosted several national television programs for the Sky News Business channel, including Sunday Business, Business Agenda and News Now with Helen Dalley. She has won a Walkley Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism and recently consulted to The Walkley Foundation over a number of years, providing integrity and fact-checking advice to the judges of The Walkley Awards.

Independent Journalist Council Members have an important leadership and governance role in the operations of the APC.

Bruce Dover is the Managing Director of DCI Media Group, a media consultancy with partners in Sydney, Hong Kong, and London. Bruce is a senior executive with experience spanning 40 years in television, digital media and interactive content development.

He was Vice President (China) for News Corporation/STAR TV in Beijing for four years. He has also been a foreign correspondent in Asia, winning the Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year award (1986).

Industry Adjudication Panel Members are independent of publishers and have an important role in determining whether published material, which has been the subject of a complaint, has breached the APC’s Standards of Practice.

“The APC is delighted to welcome Helen and Bruce. Their experience and perspectives are vital to the balance, relevance and integrity of Council’s processes and decisions”.
