Scholarships: I am committed to encouraging diversity and equality and have a number of
scholarships available for this program. Two scholarship places are available at 75% discount. As a guide, someone applying for this scholarship might be a woman who is undertaking unpaid caring responsibilities, or in part time work and/or in the not-for-profit sector and will likely be earning less than $50,000. If you wish to apply for a scholarship, you will need to provide an outline of your reasons and evidence of financial circumstances and, if accepted, you will be provided a code to register and pay. Please contact Helga on

Note: This program is designed for women only.

What others have said about Board Kickstarter:

The Board Kickstarter program was a really good overview of responsibilities of Directors and governance role and issues. I really enjoyed it - it was fun, collaborative and inspiring. To those that are thinking about it, I say "Go do it! Definitely sign up". Bring your thoughts and experience and also an open mind to absorb what you learn. Thanks for the opportunity. Helga facilitated the program with a combination of her energy and passion for driving women to be confident in taking a path to directorships Anna Chung, Senior Finance Executive

Helga's Board Kickstarter program was a really good way to explore and understand what's involved in a NFP Board and how to go about it. But it was more than just that - it was also a useful way to rethink career development. The atmosphere was was creative and collegiate - a supportive network. Helga helped us to inspire ourselves. I'd recommend it to anyone in career transition or who is seeking to take up a Non Executive Director role Melissa Clarkson, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, Members Equity Bank

Helga's Board Kickstarter program demystified what being on a Board is all about. It helped me to understand what skills I had, where to look and gave me ideas for my CV. It provides perspective on the big picture that you don't always get in the stresses of day to day life. I liked the informal, flexible atmosphere and meeting a group of like-minded women. Overall, it was inspiring, motivating and very enjoyable. To others that are thinking about it I would say "just do it Nicole Kepert,Conciliation Officer at Accident Compensation Conciliation Service

I recently completed the board kickstarter with Helga Svendsen. Helga provided positive and uplifting sessions. She guided the group to set attainable personal and professional goals and gave us confidence to identify our strengths in order to determine some clear direction in our future career path.The sessions had a fabulous energy and it was great to share the experince with five inspiring women!
