One of Australia’s most respected and powerful company directors, Carolyn Hewson, will share her insights on good corporate citizenship with the SA business community next month.
Ms Hewson will be a guest speaker at the Australian Institute of Management (AIM SA) on Thursday 6 September and discuss how to strike a balance between profit and supporting community interests.
Carolyn has more than 30 years’ experience in the financial sector and is a non-executive Director of BHP Billiton, Stockland Corporation and BT Investment Management, and recently retired from the board of Westpac Banking Corporation.
AIM SA chief executive officer John Stokes says Ms Hewson is an outstanding example of how to advocate for commercial success while supporting the not-for-profit and community sectors.
“This is a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with Carolyn and to be inspired by her passion, success and drive as a leading businesswoman,” he said.
“She is also heavily involved in the not-for-profit sector serving on several boards, and was awarded a Centenary Medal in recognition of her business leadership and was made an Officer in the Order of Australia for her community service to the YWCA and to business.
The evening will also feature a performance by ‘Hot Tutti’ – a quartet of disabled and proud young singers.
