I know that gaining a board appointment can be stressful.
However, regardless of whether you are an experienced Director or just starting your board career, there are some simple things you can do that will: make you more appointable; separate yourself from your competitors and; help you gain you the appointment that you want.
Be under no illusion though, finding and gaining Non Executive or Advisory Board opportunities is difficult. Of course, the effort is worth it because Board appointments can be life and career changing. Statistics have shown that people that hold Board Directorships, in addition to an executive role, are: more appointable, earn more, are unemployed less and have better networks and connections. They are also able to better future proof their careers, are likely to have more successful retirements and weather unexpected career changes strongly.
Board Appointment Solutions
With over a 15 years of board recruitment experience and having appointed hundreds of individuals to some of the most significant board roles in the world I know how and why people get appointed. Utilising this experience, I have designed four exclusive Board Appointment Solutions that have helped thousands of people gain a board appointment.
