Women on Boards – Board Success Stories























Mayvin Global Founder, Deanna Varga shares her board journey with Women on Boards


WHAT BOARDS DO YOU SIT ON?


Currently:

  • Sydney Improvised Music Association Board since 2016

  • Biz Events Asia – Editorial Advisory Board Member since 2013

  • Arts Tasmania and Screen Tasmania – Cultural and Creative Industries Expert since Feb 2018

WHEN AND WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A DIRECTOR?

I’d been thinking about a board role for many years, and when I first established my consultancy in 2011, it was a logical career progression; I’m a strategic thinker, have a commercial view point for long-term sustainability and work across many sectors. These factors meant I could add some high-level value.


WHAT ARE YOUR SHORT AND MEDIUM-TERM BOARD ASPIRATIONS?

Short-term I’d like to be appointed to a not for profit or government board. Ideally this would have grounding in the tourism, business events or cultural/arts sector.

Longer term, I’d like to lend my experience to a major cultural institution or performing arts board. I’d like to hold at least two paid board positions.
