Reviews & Success

Does what we offer work?

You bet. There are hundreds of examples of success we could offer. However, one client with our help was almost immediately appointed to a board because of the Board CV we wrote and the advice we provided for him:

‘Why do I know the Board CV was a catalyst? Because I asked what attracted their attention to me, to which they responded “the style, format and clearly articulated content of the CV”… Thank you for assisting me to make this first step into directorship outside of my own company and good luck to you in continuing your worthy business.’ Rodney Clarke

'Thanks to your advice and support i now sit on two boards!' Hamza Vayani

Thousands of other have attended our Board Search Masterclasses and Board Search Breakfasts – typical scores are 9/10 with reviews such as this one:

‘Wow! I have received valuable information that will allow me to achieve more success in my pursuit of my next board position. 10/10.’ Robert Spears

What Value Are You Going to Get?

Statistics have shown that people that 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 career change better. Still, not everyone is suited to a board appointment. But, if you do have the desire to get onto a board, to drive your career forward with a board appointment, to transition from full time work to a portfolio of part time board directorships or to develop a portfolio career then the ACCESS PLUS Package can help.

A highly competitive process

Do you know why most people who want to become a non executive director don’t achieve their board aspirations despite their desire to do so? It is simple – more often than not they don’t understand the nuances of the board appointment process and don’t persevere where others might. Don’t let that be you...

Find your next board opportunity and take the stress out of the board application with a bespoke board CV and access to thousands of vacancies.
