WOBChat is an interactive fortnightly online session designed to fill the current void. We’ll provide a facilitated, friendly environment for members to meet, network, share and learn - online.


It will be a relaxed and informal session with an agile agenda around the following:

  • meet others in the network (with attendee details provided post WOBChat for you to follow up);
  • ask questions;
  • we’ll discuss topical issues driven by attendees around governance, the impacts of COVID-19 and board journeys;
  • meet special guests;
  • build your confidence; and
  • meet new members in other states. 

How to manage your digital footprint

Your digital footprint can significantly and positively impact your board and career prospects. 

Almost everyone has a digital footprint. Understanding an individual’s reputation, level of influence and their network is more complicated. Many recruiters and search firms look online for candidate information, knowing that it can illustrate your industry leadership, your network reach and how your online reputation aligns with your offline presence. Equally important as we shift into the digital age, an relevant digital presence can also help you connect with key parts of your company and industry, helping you to be better informed about  emerging issues and risks that impact effective governance.

Claire Braund, WOB Executive Director, will explore the impact of our digital footprint with guests, Fiona McLean and Leah Fricke.
