Our Chief Executive, Linda Noble, was among around 100 invited guests of Her Excellency The Governor General of New Zealand, The Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy, at a reception for Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The reception was held at Government House and was attended by representatives from the arts, sport, health, fashion and business, as well as many Queens Award recipients. The Governor General is the patron of Governance New Zealand.
Linda was given the opportunity to meet both Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, to shake their hands and chat about the work being done by Governance New Zealand and Women on Boards to improve the level of governance capability and diversity around the board table. Duchess Camilla was particularly interested in Women on Boards, and both the Prince and the Duchess congratulated us on our achievements and wished us well for the future.
