Our clients understand the importance of strong governance in finance
“We were pleased to engage Jodie Wilmer from Conscious Governance to assist us with our triennial external board review. The Governance Evaluator survey of board members and key stakeholders, the one‑on-one interviews and the report provided us with valuable feedback. We appreciated Jodie’s insights from her extensive work with boards in a variety of industries and sectors. She facilitated a workshop with our board on her findings and assisted us to develop an action plan which enhanced our effectiveness and ensured we continue to meet APRA’s requirements.”
David Hutton OAM, Trustee Director and Chair, Remuneration and Nominations Committee, Australian Catholic Superannuation and Retirement Fund
