VIRTUAL EVENT – “Talking the COO Role” with Nicole Sorbara, Macquarie Group

Wednesday, 1st December @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


At FEI we talk often of the path to CFO, but have you considered other C-suite career options?
The role of Chief Operating Officer is one that is increasingly prominent on the radar of finance execs.

What do COOs do? What skills are required? And how can you navigate your career in that direction?
Join us as we pose these questions to our next FEI guest, Nicole Sorbara, Group Chief Operating Officer of Macquarie Group.

Starting her career as a chartered accountant, Nicole has gone on to lead a diverse range of functions and teams.  No stranger to bold, and potentially risky, career moves she has been Macquarie Group’s Chief Operating Officer and Head of Macquarie’s Corporate Operations Group for nine years, leading a global team of 4,500 people across 22 countries.  Responsible for Digital Transformation & Data, Technology, Market Operations, Human Resources, Business Services, Business Improvement & Strategy, and the Macquarie Group Foundation, Nicole has been a member of the Macquarie Group Executive Committee since 2013.

This event offers a rare opportunity to better understand the day-to-day agenda of the COO and to hear from a leading senior executive whose breadth of career embodies one of the principles close to our heart at FEI – that of continual learning.  Hear how Nicole has learned to operate with confidence outside her core expertise, her thoughts on being a global leader at scale, and how she goes about upskilling herself and her team for new opportunities and responsibilities.

FEI is delighted to be able to host Nicole.

This event is for FEI Members only, at no additional charge.

FEI events typically meet the requirements for CPD for professional bodies. This event would be regarded as 1 hour of CPD.
