Not only reporting to Fastmail’s board, Nicola also participates in external advisory boards where she meets with other company leaders and discusses their greatest challenges and opportunities.
Nicola organises CTO School Australia, having extended its reach from just Melbourne to the rest of the country, where she coaches aspiring tech leaders, and sources speakers to broaden attendees experience.
