Networking
  • To provide personal support, connections and encouragement through networking events are informal, friendly and fact-filled events with a guest speaker.
  • Opportunities to develop your professional network attended by like-minded people and gain practical information and insights at both information and events, focussing on you connecting with people who can help with your executive and board career
