The many boards Sandra currently chairs and is a director of are a testament to her abilities and extensive experience. As a business coach, authoress, entrepreneur and strategic adviser to business, Sandra delivers a fresh encapsulating modern approach to professional development.

John is the Founder of the leading workshop and mentoring for CFO's. The CFO of the Future workshops have been the no.1 training program in Australia and New Zealand for over twenty years, a huge legacy to John's ability to coach current and aspiring CFO's to accelerated career pathways.

A busy but humbling professional director to many boards, John's time is limited however he is passionate about providing best practice learning for CFO's and Finance teams, whereby Coachability is proud to present John Petty as an occasional Special Guest.
