March 13, 2023 | 0 Comments

Dorothy Butterfield, Yvonne DeCosta, Carol Dixon, Laureen Franks, Natalie Millar and Megan Nesbitt have joined the Institute of Directors Bermuda board.

A spokesperson said, “On March 1, 2023, the Institute of Directors Bermuda Branch held its Annual General Meeting [AGM]. Current Board Chair, Michelle Cardwell, was elected to continue in the position this year and she is joined by Treasurer, Megan Nesbitt and Secretary, Susie Tindall.

“In recapping the year’s highlights Ms Cardwell pointed to the marked success of the professional development sessions with local partners KPMG, Carey Olsen, Deloitte, and PWC which saw more than 1000 registrants participate in 19 sessions.

“The AGM also saw a number of members join the Board for the first time and others step into new positions. Joining the Board this year are, Dorothy Butterfield, Yvonne DeCosta, Carol Dixon, Laureen Franks, Natalie Millar and Megan Nesbitt.”

“Once again, we have a great group of individuals who have chosen to continue on the Board this year and we also have members who have stepped forward and joined the Executive Committee as Directors or Ambassadors,” says Ms Cardwell.

The spokesperson said, “Last year, IoD Bermuda implemented an Ambassador initiative with members of the Board taking Ambassador positions in key areas for the organisation. These are divided in the “core” areas of Policy and Governance, Education and Skills, Diversity and Inclusion and PR and Communication, plus positions focused on Climate Change and Sustainability, Public and Third sector, Fintech/Cybersecurity and Professional and Financial Services.”

“Ambassadors are important positions that help us to communicate with our members but also with the general community,” explains Ms Cardwell. “They act as a focal point for the Branch’s efforts to identify and raise the profile of key groups while driving membership within these groups.”

The spokesperson said, “In addition to IoD’s focus on professional development, education and networking for Bermuda’s Director community, Ms Cardwell says the organisation will this year be focused on creating even more networking opportunities for members and continuing to encourage participation in the Certificate in Company Direction programme.

“There were also a few members who stepped down from their positions on the Board including former Co-Chair, Sara Schroter along with Neil Glass and Natalie Neto.”

“They have all had a tremendous influence on the growth and success of the Branch over the years and I am personally grateful for their support and efforts,” says Ms Cardwell. “We wish them well and are sure they will continue to stay involved with IoD Bermuda.”
