Bauke van Weeghel

Dear Sir/Madam,
I have just been reading about your ELGP program to engage young leaders to become a board member and/or have a more active role in the non-profit industry.

I was wondering if this program has a certain age limit.

I am 44 years of age and have 20 years of international experience as a financial professional and in this time I have been involved in the various aspects of financial management, management of small teams in an entrepreneurial for profit environment and positioned myself as an adaptable, trustworthy sounding board to all levels within a business and support them in their activities.

Trained by Big 4 accounting firm KPMG, my experience ranges from business management and financial management, business analysis to implementation of new systems and procedures. I have a strategic mindset with a commercial/entrepreneurial view on business with a focus on commercial sustainability and building a future proof organization. Together with my knowledge gained from my MBA study, strong and loyal work ethic and experience across different industries I strongly believe I can add significant valuable to Aged Care and Community Boards. Recently I have been appointed as treasurer for a NPO Hillary’s Out of School Care and board member of Bambara Primary School.
