Marla Ubhi – Stepping Stones Alumna
“Stepping Stones was critical in helping me develop my board skills for NED roles. The depth of knowledge and experience within the Transpire Community that makes the programe so special, showed me how to apply the theory with real life examples and experience. When I took on the Chair role, I felt that I had the knowledge but even more importantly, I had the support network to back me up when I needed it.”
