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. So, if you are serious about gaining your first or a subsequent Directorship the 3rd Edition of our Board Appointments Book: The Definitive Guide to Gaining a Non-Executive Directorship is for you.
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.
- Write a board resume and cover letter.
- Create personal connections that lead to board appointments.
- Work with executive search firms.
- Write a successful board application.
- What questions to expect in a board interview.
- How to respond to board interview questions.
- What due diligence you should do once offered a role.
And, importantly, it will give you an insight into the board appointment process that only Chairs and recruiters know.
