Bond University was a proud sponsor and host of the recent BoardConnect residency on Friday, April 20.
BoardConnect provides a service designed to support the boards of non-profit organisations in Australia.
Board members from a variety of organisations gathered at Bond to hear presentations about essential principles of governance and developing entrepreneurial skills on the Board.
Dr Justin Craig, Associate Professor of Global Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Family Business within the Faculty of Business, was one of the keynote presenters and shared his expertise about how to create opportunities for organisational growth while managing the associated risks.
Feedback from the attendees was very positive with one commenting the best elements of the event was the ‘concise, relevant, practical guidance and examples’ provided by the speakers.
Governance and board development issues remain significant and challenging for many not-for-profit (and commercial) organisations and Bond University is proud to support initiatives that provide education in the field. Future events are being planned for later in the year.
