Feel like you've been "thrown in the deep-end"?
Hi! I’m Lisa, the founder of Get on Board Australia. After a career in the Sydney corporate sector, I moved to Adelaide and worked as a freelance marketing consultant. My marketing and business background led me to being approached by two organisations – a not-for-profit and a public unlisted organisation – to join their boards. The term “being thrown in the deep-end” finally started to make sense to me.
Even though I had completed business management studies, being a company director and learning how to successfully navigate the boardroom weren’t part of the curriculum. To make matters worse, the only options for director education and development programs were way too expensive, particularly for volunteer directors.
So, I decided to create something new, and specifically designed for people like me. Something for those future leaders who are at the start of their board career and need some affordable formal education and can learn some tips and tricks from experts and the experiences of others in the same situation.
Thus, Get on Board Australia was started, an organisation catering to the unique development and education needs of new and aspiring company directors.
