Angela Emslie spent 24 years on the board of HESTA, the last nine as chair, before stepping down in December 2018. We ask Angela about her time with the fund and what she'll miss most. She also shares a little about her unconventional childhood, lightbulb career moment, how to cultivate a positive workplace culture, and her board roles in the areas of responsible investing and suicide prevention. And about that time, as a new graduate, when she developed a fascination for ports.

He also pays tribute to his support team, names his charity partners, and admits he might just have another book or three in him. Stay tuned! More
