On Thursday 18 May, we hosted our second Pathway to the Boardroom at the Hyatt in Canberra with seasoned NEDs Anne O’Donnell and Mark McConnell.

Anne spoke about identifying companies that genuinely interest and inspire you. She emphasised the importance of finding the right cultural fit, because in tough times you would be in the trenches with your fellow board members.

Mark talked about diversity in the boardroom and need to ensure we have diversity of thinking, skills set, gender, age and experience to ensure boards don’t end up falling into the ‘group think’ mentality.
