Thanks to my Board Direction membership my non-executive career is well underway. I secured two non-executive board positions this year.

Executive Member

Studies 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

Career Development

Whilst some boards remunerate their directors, all board appointments offer the opportunity to brand yourself as a non executive director. Equally, they demonstrate your strategic expertise and connections at the highest level.

Additional Income

Whilst some board directors get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars the average paid director gets $35k-$65k and because governing boards are essential to most organisations they are, as such, rarely effected by global financial downturns.

Personal Development

Giving back to an industry, sector or cause you are passionate about drives many directors. Whether in a commercial or NFP setting, sitting on a board of an organisation you are passionate about is a terrific way to utilise your skills and experience.
