Pottinger joins Indopac Council.
Indopac founder, Peter Charlton, said "I am delighted to welcome Cassandra and Nigel to the Council. The presence of an acknowledged business advisory group whose strategic knowledge and advice adds to the key role in Indopac, and to the strategic talent of our council. The Council includes: Naryana Murthy, founder of Infosys; Jack Ma of Alibaba, the Steve Jobs of this era; and Gina Rinehart of mining fame."
Pottinger founder Kelly said "In the next 20 years, we will see a dramatic shift in the economic centre of gravity to the Indo Asia Pacific region which will contribute disproportionately to global economic growth. The Indopac Council reflects an understanding of the need for a much greater focus to the regions' business and government issues."
Cassandra Kelly will be presenting with Jack Ma at the Indopac forum in Hong Kong in late April.

Hosted by Directors & Boards
Cassandra Kelly spoke at a webinar on ways to improve the progress and the trajectory of women directors, hosted by Directors & Boards. The annual discussion features four women directors who have been nominated as a Director to Watch, recognizing ‘professionals who have contributed to and will continue to expand ongoing dialogue on board best practices and corporate governance excellence’. This year, speakers included Cassandra Kelly, Cheryl Mayberry McKissack, Brenda D. Newberry, and Beth Stewart. The discussion was moderated by Directors & Boards editor Jim Kristie.
Cassandra commented: “If you’re trying to get the very best thinkers around any table and you’re only recruiting from 50% of the gene pool, this is an illogical starting point. You can be certain you’re not getting the best if you’re not selecting from the whole field.”
