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 publicly listed 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, what it means to be a director and learning how to successfully navigate the boardroom weren't part of my 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 careers and need some formal education and to learn some tips and tricks from experts and the experiences of others in the same situation. It also needed to be cost-effective.
Thus, Get on Board Australia was started; an organisation catering to the unique development and education needs of new and aspiring company directors. I invite you to read all about how you can kickstart your board career with Get on Board courses here.
