As a structured and collaborative method, an advisory board is an incredibly powerful tool for organisations to harness external experts to gain new insights and advice to solve business problems or explore new opportunities by stimulating robust, high-quality conversations.
As one of Australia’s leading IT service providers, Fujitsu has identified an outstanding growth strategy through 2025 that will uncover creative new ways to bring innovation and critical thinking to what they do and how they do it. In order to solve their customers’ challenges, Fujitsu understands they need to connect their people with ideas and thought leadership from individuals with unique experiences and perspectives.
To that end, Fujitsu has taken the discerning step of forming an advisory board. Graeme Beardsell, CEO of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand remarks, “Appointing an advisory board is one way that we can engage with experts across a variety of industries to explore different business opportunities and collaborate, as well as validate new ideas.”
With this announcement, we are so pleased to share that Certified Chair™ Toby Hall has been chosen by Fujitsu to join this special advisory board. As Group CEO for eight years at St Vincent’s Health Australia, Toby has extensive experience in business development and is a leader in the hospital, health and aged care industry. Congratulations Toby!
