If you are serious about gaining your first or a subsequent Directorship the Board Appointments Book: The Definitive Guide to Gaining a Non-Executive Directorship is for you.

There are many things in life that you cannot prepare for but the board appointment process is not one of them. Finding Non-Executive Director opportunities can be challenging, gaining an appointment even more so as it is a highly competitive process.

Non-executives often describe finding their first directorship as an arduous and time-consuming process. More experienced Directors suggest finding subsequent board roles equally challenging. For this reason, 4 years ago, I wrote the first Board Appointments book.

This book has helped many on their journey to a seat on a board. Last year I updated the information in the book and also added a lot more information. Board Appointments: The Definitive Guide to Gaining a Non-Executive Directorship is a unique and invaluable guide to everyone looking for a board role. Regardless of your approach, the process of finding and being appointed to a board takes a certain amount of skill and practice. This book provides practical advice, clearly written from the perspective of an experienced board recruiter, to help get you on a board.

Specifically, it addresses how to:

⇒ Define your board profile

⇒ Articulate your Board Profile – your pitch

⇒ Create personal connections that lead to board appointments

⇒ Write a successful board application

⇒ Know questions to expect in a board interview

⇒ Know how to respond to board interview question

⇒ Learn what due diligence you should do once offered a role

Importantly, it will give you an insight into the board appointment process that only Chairs and recruiters know.

Authored by David Schwarz who has close to 15 years’ experience of putting people on boards as an international headhunter and non-executive recruiter. He has been quoted as a CV expert by MyCareer, and on Channel 10′s ‘The Project’. He has also been featured in the Financial Review’s BOSS magazine and speaks regularly for organisations such as Governance Institute of Australia, Sydney University’s Graduate School of Management (AGSM) and the CEO Institute.  There is no one more qualified in explaining the non-executive recruitment process, and how individuals find board roles.
