Director Briefings

Clayton Utz Lunch Series

Sydney and Melbourne

One of our longest running corporate partnerships is with top tier law firm, Clayton Utz. We host Director Briefings with leading Non-Executive-Directors. These are excellent opporutnities to network with fellow directors who are members of, and external to, the WOB network at a small, boutique event with fewer than 50 people.  Topics vary, but usually encompass a short history of the speakers career and current challenges and opportunies in the sectors and organisations in which they serve as directors.

Mercer Lunch Series


The Mercer Lunch Series is an educative session for serving female Non Executive Directors. Speakers include chairs and Non Executive Directors and men and women serving in key leadership roles. A small event with fewer than 25 people, this lunch is a great way to connect with fellow WOB members and build other connections.

Director's Circle


To celebrate the anniversary of our 10th birthday, Women on Boards has launched a Sydney Director's Circle. This is new initiative for WOB members who are already serving as Non-Executive-Directors to take part in an informed, intelligent and confidential discussion in the graceful surrounds of The Women's Club. The Sydney Director's Circle will be held quarterly with members invited to sit in small circles of six or eight over drinks and substantial canapes and discuss issues and matters arising from a short presentation by a guest speaker. Following the smaller discussions, a broader conversation will be facilitated.

About The Women's Club

The Women's Club was established in 1901 by Dr Mary Booth, physician and welfare worker, as a meeting place for women interested in public, professional, scientific and artistic work. The main activity was the establishment of Circles, modelled on the salons for which Vice-President and founder of the Womanhood Suffrage League, Rose Scott, became famous. The Circles provided opportunities for women’s education in social, political and aesthetic matters and remain the lifeblood of The Women's Club today.
