Boardroom Insider of the Month with Jodie Hawkes | Ep. 50

As Chair of Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland, and CFO of Bowhill Engineering, Jodie Hawkes relishes in the opportunities to lead people. Whether it’s in the boardroom, in the factory, or across a regional community, Jodie is focused with determination to ensure that goals and objectives are met while building high-performance individuals, world-class organisations, and resilient communities, with a deep sense of well-being and connection with the world around them.

Jodie shares what motivates her to be involved at the board level, the value she gains from that experience, how she overcame her biggest boardroom challenge, and distils advice for aspiring and new board members from her many years in the boardroom. I also ask Jodie about how she navigates the unique challenges of rural and regional based boards. It’s a rich conversation that I hope you enjoy.
