We think that it is time to deepen your connections.... so join WOB for our 'Members' Only' Christmas luncheon with special guest, Rowena Ironside.
Forget those COVID kilos and enjoy a wonderful meal. To help us get festive, enjoy a glass of bubbly on us on arrival.
Kylah Morrison will be there along with many old WOB friends and acquaintances so why not take time out to connect, learn and leave inspired. This is our key event of the year. Book early to avoid missing out as numbers are limited.
Special Guest Speaker: Rowena Ironside
Co-founder and Non Executive Director, Women on Boards UK
Non Executive Director, Digital Catapult
Steering Committee Member, THIS.Institute
After emigrating to Perth with her family as a teenager, Rowena graduated from St Hilda’s in 1973 and subsequently did a Bachelor of Business in Information Processing at WAIT (now Curtin). Her first programming job was with the Swan Brewery (Canning Vale) after which she headed to London in 1981.
After 20 years on the leading edge of the IT industry and then a year at London Business School doing a Masters (post the dot.com boom and bust) Rowena built a second career around purpose-led business and in 2012 was one of the founders of Women on Boards in the UK, where she was Executive Chair for 8 years before stepping back into an NED role. In 2020, Rowena developed WOB’s “Becoming an Effective Chair” programme, which she still delivers 3 or 4 times a year for WOB UK.
Rowena started her non-exec career in 2006 and has experience as a trustee, Chair and NED across private, public and not-for-profit sectors. As well as Women on Boards UK, she is currently an NED at the Digital Catapult, a publicly funded digital technology innovation centre in London and Chair of the healthcare charity PSPA. She also sits on the Steering Committee of The Healthcare Improvement Studies (THIS) Institute in Cambridge.
