Driven by adding value to the community, Angela says – “my strong social conscience is complemented by a keen achievement focus. I believe achievement and ambition are great, as long as they are not gained off-the-back of others,”. The vast majority of her career has involved providing services to vulnerable clients.
As a resilient and agile Covid-era executive, Angela is continually scanning changing conditions. She assesses strategic opportunities and risks, identifies viable growth strategies and looks for opportunities to deliver maximum value to the community.
Viewing her strengths as people leadership, balancing the strategic and operational and tackling new challenges with gusto and a practical mindset, Angela describes herself as very collaborative and instinctive, yet risk aware. She said, “I am a vulnerable leader and I see that as a strength. I believe that exceptional outcomes are achieved when diverse people work together within ‘safe’ cultures that allow them to leverage the collective strengths of the group.”
With tertiary qualifications in Marketing and Behavioural Science and after 15+ years reporting to CEO and Board, Angela is also both financially literate and astute.
A very warm, responsive, engaging and likeable professional leader, Angela Uilderks is an exceptional, can-do executive with a superb reputation for ‘getting in and doing it’.
