Elizabeth Jameson founded and is now Executive Chair of a leading Australian governance consultancy Board Matters and its associated governance legal practice, Board Matters Legal. This draws on her prior 15 year career as a corporate commercial lawyer which culminated in partnership of Australian law firm Deacons (now Norton Rose Fulbright) with a strong footprint in Vietnam and other centres throughout Asia.
Elizabeth has over the past 30 years therefore provided corporate legal and governance assistance and advice, with a real-life ‘practising director’ perspective, to a large range of companies, organisations, and industries throughout Australia and beyond. She maintains an active portfolio of directorships, presently including the board of a $1.5B member mutual group (incorporating an insurance company and a bank); being chair of a theatre company and board member of two philanthropic foundations. Her past directorships have included the boards of over 20 for-profit and not-for-profit organisations, including as chair of a private company board in the UK and chair of a leading professional services firm with practices around the world.
Elizabeth will facilitate Day Two of the International Company Directors Course.
