PAUL Nyausaru  holds a Bachelor of Arts  Degree in English and Communication  Skills, a Diploma in Training (IPMZ) and certificates in the following: Strategic Human Resources Management, InterAction Leadership Programme (British Council), Management and Leadership Development (MTB).
Nyausaru started working for Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) as examinations administration clerk (1991-2001). He worked for Zimsec as assistant examinations administration manager (2002-2005) and as training and development officer (2006-2008). He was also employed at the Zimbabwe Open University as staff training and development officer (2009- May 2010).
Nyausaru then returned to Zimsec in the department of training and development as  a manager (June 2010-March 2012). Currently he is the human resources and training manager (from March 2012) and also assists secretary to the board (since September 2011).
He is married to Netsai and they have three children, Prosper, Paul (jnr) and Primrose. His hobbies include reading and socialising.
The 21 Institute of Directors Zimbabwe (IoDZ) corporate governance modules that Nyausaru went through were an eye opener. He  said the block release programme has helped him appreciate what it means and what it takes to be a company secretary and this has made it easier for him to assist the board to make important and development-oriented decisions.
Nyausaru covered board procedures, board composition, strategic planning on the part of the board, and the financial aspect of looking at issues. He said it was very beneficial.
Nyausaru has a wider view of what corporate governance is. He is now in a better position to advice the board and come up with instruments that enable the board to function effectively.
He has the requisite knowledge and skills concerning how organisations should be governed. This has assisted him provide advice and help in the provision of secretarial services to the board.
“It has made my job much easier as I have been able to come up with a better and easier format for writing and capturing board minutes,” Nyausaru said.
His wish is to see corporate governance embraced by companies and organisations in Zimbabwe, and the adoption of the country’s own  Corporate Governance Code.
