Director Lunches  |  WOBChat & WOBMeet  | Meet the Headhunters   


Getting your feet under a boardroom table (or two) is only the start of your board journey. How you exercise your responsibilities and what you achieve while serving on the board will then set the tone for the rest of your board career.

Our aim is for you to succeed in the boardroom, and we will do our best to support you for the duration of your board journey.

WOB has a range of programs, director lunches, boardroom insights and update sessions to provide you with the knowledge, information and connections for you to exercise your director duties wisely and well.

Director Lunches 

In conjunction with our excellent corporate partners, we host Director Briefings with leading Non-Executive Directors. These are excellent opportunities 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 speaker's career and current challenges and opportunities in the sectors and organisations in which they serve as directors.

WOBChat & WOBMeet

WOBChat is a one hour moderated session with a guest speaker sharing insights, experiences, and expertise with WOB members. Held between 5:00pm and 6:00pm, WOBChat provides a facilitated and friendly environment in which members can be educated on and discuss a specific topic or issue.

This event is complimentary to Premium, Full, Corporate and Champion WOB Members

WOBMeet is held quarterly at unique inner city venues in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and now Hobart for our members to meet or reconnect, share knowledge and information and practice their all important 'elevator pitch' ...over a friendly drink. The atmosphere is informal, relaxed and supportive. 

Meet the Headhunters

What are non-executive recruiters looking for in a board candidate? What do they want to know about you? And how does your ‘pitch’ really come across?

Meet our guest headhunters who will share a brief insight into their work and what they are seeing in the market currently. In discussion with WOB Chair, Ruth Medd will further discuss:

  • The search process: What’s in demand; is it women? Is it particular skills?
  • Tips for candidates wanting to be known by their firm.
  • Advice to a candidate that makes it to interview and beyond​.


"This was an awesome presentation – very useful tips, fascinating insights and well worth attending."

"Thank you Ruth, Vanessa and Jeremy for your open, pragmatic and supportive insight. Very helpful and enlightening."

"This was a really fabulous session. I’ve come away with lots of great tips."
