About Us

Cinnabar International provides specialist advice on governance for commercial, non-profit and government organisations.

The business was founded in 1997 by Christine Hawkins AM, after a highly successful executive career and a track record of non-executive director roles.

For over 20 years Christine has been Chair and Deputy Chair of organisations in a range of industries, including finance and investment, research and development, agriculture and agribusiness, environment and waste management, government corporations and non-profit organisations, including start-ups, in complex regulatory and stakeholder situations. This experience has informed the development of systems of governance that enable all types of organisations to cope with the increasing and increasingly complex requirements of the contemporary corporate environment.

We believe that all organisations, no matter how small, should aspire to excellence in governance and that, with an open mind and constructive planning, this is achievable.
