Linton Briggs

2022 Board Effectiveness Program

About the Program

The first project to be funded by the Linton Briggs Advancing Apiculture Fund will be the Linton Briggs 2022 Board Effectiveness Program.

This Program will support two state beekeeping associations to participate in a tailored workshop and follow up coaching sessions run by Dr Judith MacCormick a specialist board advisor. Dr MacCormick advises leading company boards on board effectiveness and issues related to leadership, organisational dynamics and governance. She has worked in Australia, Europe and Asia and consulted to national and multinational companies as well as public and not-for-profit sectors.
