Gaining a Board Appointment should be a process – a system of goals, habits & execution.

Most people go about finding or pursuing a board appointment all wrong. They put most of their effort in the wrong place, and when that doesn’t work they do the same again. They then get frustrated, fail to obtain their goals and quit. If this sounds familiar, then it is likely you are doing one of these three things wrong!

  1. Aspiration – Knowing what sort of role you want AND can be appointed to is essential. Regardless of your skills or experience, this session defines the roles that are right for you.
  2. Articulation – Writing your board profile that addresses the 5 key criteria that a chair is looking for and then how to articulate it.
  3. Application – There are only four ways you are going to gain a board appointment. This session outlines them all so you can replicate what successful NEDs do and spend your time effectively.

“If you get each of these 3 pillars right, you should realistically expect to obtain a board appointment within 12 months”

We have developed a complete process or framework that focuses entirely on these 3 pillars. It ensures that one addresses and challenges each of the 3 pillars with practical and executable steps, routines and proven board ready documents.
