Board Search Breakfasts: Meet David Schwarz – CEO of Board Direction & Australia’s leading board recruitment expert – and hear about how you can develop a board career.


There are many things you can not prepare for in life but gaining a board appointment is not one of them. So, don't wait to find out the hard way what you should have done to achieve your board aspirations. Take the stress out of your next board appointment and find out how to separate yourself from your competitors.

Board appointments are potentially life and career changing. In fact, statistics have shown that people who have 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 future proof their careers better, have more successful retirements and weather unexpected career changes strongly.

However, gaining a board appointment is a highly competitive process despite there being thousands of organisations looking for Non Executive Directors each year. It is particular difficult if you don’t understand the way board appointments are made or how to circumnavigate these ‘rules’.

For these reasons and many others you should attend the Board Search Breakfast.
