We had an amazing session yesterday sharing with YWLC’s Alumni on “What it really means to serve on a board?”.
Thank you, Young Women’s Leadership Connection, Kelley Wong, Jia Yun Wong for co-hosting this with us. Thank you to our esteemed panellists, Karen Loon, Jacqueline Chan, Raen Lim for sharing your personal experience and valuable advice from your board director journeys. Thank you to our moderator, Lynn Er for facilitating such a robust discussion. And thank you, Milbank LLP for hosting us in your spacious boardroom with a gorgeous view.
Some of the discussions included what are the considerations for new board members, how to prepare to become a board director, what to consider when choosing a board, what makes a good board director, how is a board director being evaluated, what is the difference between an executive and board director CV, the importance of having a sponsor/mentor etc.
