Guest Speaker: Donna Dark -  Principal Consultant/Owner Lighthouse Advisory Services 

Donna Dark describes herself as a “go-to” corporate governance advisor, sometimes University lecturer and lifelong learner. She is the principal consultant and owner of Lighthouse Advisory Services. Donna works with leaders and their teams to build confidence, capacity and resilience in their governance systems so that the focus is on the customer, not compliance.

Donna is a member of the recently formed Illawarra Regional Advisory Council for the Australian Institute of Management, and (as you may have guessed) is passionate about professional development.  She is inching closer every day to completing her Doctorate in Business Administration through the University of Wollongong Faculty of Business. Her thesis topic explores the ethical climates that exist in an Australian not for profit organisation undergoing significant growth and transformation. If you have a spare hour or two she is happy to tell you all about it!         

Speaker Topic: Authentic Leadership – are you the lighthouse for your business?

This session compliments the recent Australian Institute of Management Illawarra seminar about Authentic Leadership, with a practical application of research and current thinking about what authentic leadership looks like, with a focus on what this means for women, and business owners, big or small.  

Factors and world events influencing the recent focus on authentic leadership will also be explored in a way that will have you thinking about how you lead the way in your business, and your life.

 *At this event we will be supporting Illawarra's Dance with the Stars fundraiser - raffle funds going to the Cancer Council's fundraiser - raffle tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10.
