Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders, Australian Institute of Company Directors (2019)

The program was beyond expectation – I didn’t think it would be so rich in information and application to everything we do. I thought it would be a hard slog, but the facilitators brought it to life. It was an amazing opportunity to meet Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people working across all sectors; high achievers and inspirational. The exam prep day was excellent and gave us the opportunity to ask questions. There is definitely a need for this program as there is an expectation from our own organisations and an emphasis from private and government organisations to have Indigenous directors. Indigenous people sit on Advisory Boards (which is what I did) then once you get enough experience, you are asked to sit on a board. The course organisation was fantastic and the online portal excellent and we were all treated professionally by Perpetual and AICD. It was heaps of fun.
