Take on Board: Accelerator

Build your board portfolio and governance skills

Accelerator is a small group program for board directors looking to build on governance experience and explore challenges in a safe environment.

This practical 12-month small group (6-10 people) program brings together like-minded women to support each other in their journey to build governance wisdom.

Sessions are held monthly. There are four time options:

  • Morning session, Thursdays, 7.15am to 9am (via Zoom)
  • Midday session, Thursdays, 12.15pm to 2pm (via Zoom)
  • Afternoon session, Thursdays, 4.15pm to 6pm (via Zoom)
  • Evening session, Thursdays, 7.15pm to 9pm (via Zoom)

Each year, two scholarship places available at 75% discount. Aboriginal women, women from culturally diverse backgrounds or women with a disability will be given preference for these scholarship places. Contact me or go to TryBooking for more information.

Bookings are now closed for Take on Board: Accelerator 2022.

Helga’s Take on Board: Accelerator program was terrific. Helga ensured a safe space to learn and discuss all the ins and outs of being an effective board member. I learnt lots and made really useful action plans for my improved board practice and the monthly meetings and regular follow-up ensured I carried these out. Another excellent aspect was the great network of women participants. While each had different experiences all were generous in their sharing - we learnt so much from each other and I believe will remain firm friends. Thank you so much Helga for making this extremely rewarding experience possible.
