Executive Chairman, IMA (International Management Assistants)
Nina Aunula was elected Executive Chairman of IMA (International Management Assistants) in October 2019 and was the Chairman of the Finnish National Committee 2012 – 2016.
She has a background of more than 30 years working as an Executive Assistant or in similar positions and was a regular lecturer for Bachelor of Business Admin students at the University of Applied Sciences for 6 years. Her passion is to raise the awareness and the regard of Management Support Professionals.
Today, Nina works together with the Corporate General Counsel at a global listed company in Finland. She also assists the Board of Directors and the Leadership Team and is particularly interested in specific tasks comprising Corporate Governance in general and e.g. Insider Management in particular. (Which was a surprise both to herself and those who know her).
She loves to run, to read and to travel, as well as being active in peer support groups. She gets inspired, over and over again, by the Phantom of the Opera, Nelson Mandela and Charles Dickens, to name a few.
The Seamless Professional Collaboration Between Manager and Management Support Professional
Personal and professional development and a relentless drive for improvement are my main goals, but most important of all are the underlying dynamics; i.e. how to maintain a healthy equilibrium and growth in the process?
- How to start swimming when you have jumped in at the deep end
- How to take responsibility of your position and form it to reflect the added value you give
- How to work independently but towards common goals
- How to sustain a professional partnership on a senior level
