Board Appointment Masterclass

David Schwarz


At the Board Direction Masterclass you will hear from David Schwarz – Australia’s leading board recruitment expert – about why gaining a Non Executive Directorship is such a highly competitive process and how you can gain a board appointment.

Finding your first board directorship can be arduous and time consuming. More experienced Non Executive Directors suggest finding subsequent board roles can be equally challenging. This journey can be even more challenging if you don’t understand the way board appointments are made or how to circumnavigate these ‘rules’. Further, not starting your journey to a board career early, relying on existing or stale networks and not fully understanding the complexities of how board appointments are made can cripple your chances of being appointed to a board. Addressing these issues is why our Board Appointment Seminars are so popular.
