Paul Dubal Paul brings a 30+ year career as a governance professional, which has allowed him to see every conceivable variety of boardroom conduct and behaviours, as well as numerous examples of poor leadership, the very antithesis of good governance. This fired his fascination for emotional intelligence or quotient (EQ), and how it could be used in the workplace to improve behaviours and create better leaders. Paul is a certified EQ assessor and coach and combines his global governance experience with EQ to provide unique leadership insights that help clients become effective board directors.

Mardi Witzel Mardi spent her career at the intersection of technology and financial services with NCR Corporation and is a Board Director with 20 years’ experience in not-for-profit board governance, payment systems, stakeholder engagement, strategic planning, fundraising and communications. Mardi’s area of focus is on director and board preparedness for environment and social governance (ESG) and the governance of artificial intelligence (AI). Boards and senior leadership teams in organizations across all industry sectors will need to consider these and other frontier topics if they are not already doing so. Mardi helps boards be ready as a number of relatively new topics are hitting the board agenda with varying levels of preparedness to address them.
