Sean Dempsey, CEO of Plan Partners interviewed by Max King Rock Solid People

    • Mental Health

Sean Dempsey
Chief Executive Officer Plan Partners, Victoria
Sean is proud to say he is driven by achievement and progress. He likes to see hard work resulting in outcomes – "the good you do being observed in other people". I hate coming home from a day’s work not knowing what was achieved.


Before Plan Partners, Sean worked in car and home insurance claims integrating supply chains that involved a lot of travel to places like Taiwan, India, and the US trying to repair cars better and cheaper. Those days of travel feel like centuries ago now.


His favourite moment working with Plan Partners involved a presentation the team did to the McMillan Shakespeare Group. We wanted to truly convey what we do at Plan Partners and why we do it. Rather than present through the typical, sterile channels of PowerPoint, we asked a customer to come along and tell her story. At age 16, Anj was beaten within a millimetre of her death. Previously, a star netball player and overall high sports achiever, Anj was left with permanent physical and mental injuries, yet cognitively still bright as a button. When she finished telling her story, there wasn’t a dry eye left in the room. Anj, and customers like her, are our why; the reason we do what we do - and everyone at McMillan Shakespeare Group could very quickly understand that.
