Tapping into new networks is a two-way street
You may want to call it serendipity. Just when the Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences was looking for a board member with a background in business and accounting, Nidhi Nijhawan, a successful chartered accountant and hobbyist photographer, wanted to stretch her wings further.
With a strong desire to make a difference, Nidhi was now looking to volunteer with a board that would value her experience as the Chief Financial Officer and Controller at Medical Futures Inc., a niche pharmaceutical company that sells both pharmaceutical and natural therapeutic products in North America. “There are so many benefits to joining a board. And for me I’m really looking forward to being exposed to new experiences and tapping into networks that I would not normally come across in my career,” says Nidhi.
