Telstra CEO David Thodey makes himself available to Communications minister Senator Conroy 'on-demand' for separation talks, he told media at the telco's investor's day in Sydney yesterday.
In this one minute clip, Thodey says he will "do whatever it takes" to come to a conclusion.
"I can't think of a higher priority for our shareholders and for the business going forward. As I have said to Senator Conroy, we want to do everything possible... to help get to a conclusion," he said.
When asked how many times he had met with the Senator, Thodey said he couldn't remember because it was so often.
"I meet with the Senator basically on-demand. I can't remember the number of times I have met with him. It is ongoing. It is very, very important to have an open, frank and honest dialogue because there are so many issues... we are enjoying working with the Senator, it's difficult issues, very important issues.
"And it is the same with the NBN," added Thodey.
