Global Advisory Board

The Global Advisory Board is the link between the Institute and our key stakeholders in the tech industry locally, nationally and internationally. Board members inform our ongoing development and research activity by advising on critical skill and knowledge needs of executives and businesses in the tech sector. They advise us on potential areas of applied and collaborative research, executive development and consultancy. The Board members act as a sounding board for new ideas and initiatives and they serve as our champions.
