Non Executive Directorships &
Board Advisory work
An important component of my portfolio is NEDs with organisations I am passionate about supporting.
Currently I chair the Wright-Burt Foundation, a private fund which generously supports the arts, environment, heritage and education. I also sit on the board of Forrest Personnel which helps people with disability in gaining employment.
Past board positions and board advisory work:
- WA Ballet
- Eastman Theatre Group
- Perth Symphony Orchestra
- Fremantle Chamber Orchestra
(seeing a pattern here? I love performing arts and WA has so much talent!)
- The Fremantle Press
"Lyn is the chair of the TEC group I have been a member on for more than 10 years. She challenges me and keeps me accountable in ways that only an experience coach who is external to an organisation could do.
Her vast corporate connections coupled with The Executive Connections' global reach allows me to do business better.
I consider the monthly meetings which have expert speaker sessions on a wide range of topics, plus the executive peer sessions lead by Lyn as critical to my professional growth."
2017 West Australian of the Year Finalist and 2015 WA Telstra Business Woman of the Year winner are just some of the recognition for Angie's considerable business achievements.
Her personal journey into leadership is inspiring: having overcome considerable personal challenges, to more recently having lead the development of two award-winning national and international enterprises for Holyoake where she now works as CEO.
Angie is a highly articulate keynote & motivational speaker who speaks from the heart and generously shares the lessons she has learned, many the hard way!
"Lyn and I have both had a parent succumb to Alzheimer's, so she personally knows how important our research is to stem this tsunami. Lyn's involvement with Alzheimer's research has been in various ways over the years. She's provided strong business acumen and much needed support right from the fledgling stage.
Lyn has insight, energy and strategic thinking as her strengths."
Professor Ralph Martins is a world leader of research into Alzheimer’s disease.
His team made the first significant discovery showing that the beta amyloid protein that coats the brain is the foundation of Alzheimer’s then the critical discovery that the Alzheimer’s brain is under oxidative stress. He has been instrumental in bringing to Perth new technology that makes it possible to determine if a patient has deposits of the toxic beta amyloid, and therefore allow early treatment before the brain has been irreparably damaged.
Professor Martins is working to develop an early diagnostic blood test.
"Play, discover, excite, learn and shine is what PSO is all about! Everything we provide to audiences and communities is for the purpose of meeting one or more of these objectives and I think they apply equally to Lyn’s approach to her consulting work. She might be a highly qualified CPA and company director but she also knows the importance of fun, big dreams and new adventures in business.
I have appreciated Lyn’s counsel when I needed to dig deeper to better understand my business before making big decisions. Highly recommend doing business with her."
Bourby studied at Oxford University and Royal College of Music in London, and did a MBA at University of Western Australia. This has allowed her to combine performance music with business. As director and founder of North Street Music (NSM), Perth Symphony Orchestra and Perth Chamber Orchestra, she spreads her love for music across the state. Bourby lectures at WA Academy of Performing Arts, performs as part of a rock string quartet and, when possible, plays viola with Perth Symphony Orchestra.
