The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) hosted a dinner in Suva for the Fijian business community on July 18 with former Wallabies captain Phil Kearns.

Mr Kearns, who now runs an insurance brokerage, discussed the parallels to be found between sport and the boardroom.

“Defining success in business is more difficult than in sport,” Mr Kearns said.

“Accountability is important: leaders need to be held accountable and receive feedback.”

The event also acknowledged recent graduates of the Fiji Directors Course that the AICD runs in Fiji.

The AICD will be back in Fiji from  October 1-3 to deliver the Fiji Directors Course in Suva.

They will also run an International Company Directors Course from  July 15-19, 2019 in Nadi: the first time it will be run in the West.

The course will run for five days and is based on global governance principles.
