Board Directorships
Pathways, Pitfalls and the Importance of Governance for Growth

 

Over the last two years the landscape of directorships has changed. There have been strategic shifts in acquiring board diversity, encompassing gender, age, culture and experience; a global phenomenon that has been championed in the UAE. On the flipside, the value of Governance is being recognised by SME operators who require funding in order to expand their businesses. 

This panel discussion will address how business leaders develop the skill set required to take that step into a Directorship, and more importantly how they actually make that transition. Conversely, we also ask how can SME's and NFP's develop Governance in their enterprises and why this is essential regardless of organisational size or clout. 

If you are pursuing a career in directorship, or you are a business leader seeking to understand the role of governance in your organisational growth strategy then this session is for you. 

We are honoured to have the following minds share their knowledge and experienes: 

  • Rebecca Hall, Venture Partner for Mindshift Capital and Australian Institute of Company Directors Middle East Advisory Committee Member with experience in Investment and Portfolio management, Private Equity, Venture Capital, Value Creation Advisory
  • Adam Malouf, Chief Investment Officer for The Knowledge Fund Dubai & Chair of the Australian Institute of Company Directors Middle East Advisory Committee with experience in C-Suite Executives and Non-Executive Directorships
