Kailis Bros
101 Oxford Street

Board Directors are expected to provide leadership and input into the organisation’s goals and objectives. In this series, the components of business strategy, governance and your own objectives will be covered.

FACILITATED BY: Maree Gooch and Business Women Australia

Over three morning sessions held in Sept, Oct and Nov, you will tap into the experience and expertise of Maree Gooch who will share her insights as a Board Director and Chair. The ability to impact on a successful strategy will be explored while you delve into the effective ways you can build and leverage a high profile personal brand that will open the right doors for you. This pragmatic three-part program has been designed with input from the leadership team of Business Women Australia to cover the key Board responsibilities of strategy, governance and “you”. Board Directors (and those aspiring for Board roles) of private companies, not-for-profits, family businesses, social enterprises, government agencies and corporations, will gain an understanding of the best practices in leading and directing an organisation as an effective and valuable Board member.

* Limited to 16 participants to ensure the value of working together and tapping into the collective wisdom in the room.
* Designed and facilitated by Maree Gooch, an experienced Board Director and Chair.
* An experienced guest Board Director will be invited to each morning session to share their advice.

It's time to develop the practical knowledge about the role and responsibilities of an effective Director, while getting a deeper understanding of what you bring to a board as an individual. This non-accredited program is pragmatic and designed for hands-on knowledge transfer based on the experience of genuine board directors. Being connected to Business Women Australia provides exciting opportunities to mix with a wide cross section of influential female leaders in business, government and the professions. Our calendar of events is developed for ongoing professional, personal and business development.
