A HILTON business owner from the mining sector says he is keen to add a lending hand to a large not-for-profit group.
Riley Upston is close to graduating from the Southcare Inc-run Emerging Leaders in Governance Program (ELGP).
The program prepares professionals under 40 years of age for board positions within not-for-profit groups.
Mr Upston, a metallurgist specialising in precious metals, said he believed he could bring the “agility” of a small business to a large not-for-profit organisation.
“After witnessing various family members’ experiences in aged care facilities, I am incredibly determined to further improve upon the industry’s good work,” he said.
Also in the program is Beeliar accountant Ian Edwards.
“The program has been a fantastic experience providing an opportunity to learn about the not-for-profit sector and meet some of the key players,” he said.
