    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.
