Board governance and director coaching.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR GREATEST TRIUMPH AND YOUR GREATEST SUCCESS IN THE LEGAL SERVICES FIELD AND WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM EACH?

Working with several clients to find and secure their first female corporate directors, and having them (the men) just relish in their success in doing so.
