Winner of IoD Auckland Branch’s Inaugural Emerging Director Study Award Announced
The Institute of Directors (IoD) Auckland Branch has announced Nicola Duggan as the recipient of its inaugural Emerging Director Study Award.
Nicky is Executive Director and a shareholder in Evolution of Surfaces Ltd, and has already made contributions in sports, community and commercial governance.
Congratulating Nicky on her award, convenor of judges Warren Dalzell commented, “The judges selected Nicky from more than 20 new and aspiring Director applicants because of her commitment to and understanding of the profession, and the varied relevant skills she brings to a board. The judging panel would like to also congratulate finalists Ian Cathcart and Carolyn Steele and convey that the calibre of the applicants made this a difficult decision.”
Nicky receives $2,000 towards the IoD professional development course of her choice, as well as complimentary membership of the IoD, access to a mentor, and free attendance at Auckland branch events for a year.
This new Award will be contested annually amongst members who have less than five years governance experience, who most clearly demonstrate commitment to developing their skills as a Director, and who demonstrate the best understanding of the importance of sound governance.
