Private Board Search Event

The questions are not ‘Should a board role be part of your career plan?’ or ‘Are there opportunities available?’ – you should, and there are thousands of opportunities. Rather they should be ‘How do you find these opportunities?’, ‘How do you determine the right one for you?’ and ‘How do you get appointed?’.

Regardless of your skills or level of experience if you want a board appointment and these are questions you need answers to, register to attend the next Board Search Breakfast. Places are limited to just 20. Don’t wait to find out the hard way what you should have done to achieve your board aspirations – book now!

After I attended your breakfast , I have since gained my first Board appointment! You spoke so clearly and helped me to understand how to frame my aspirations, skills and vision in order to gain a Board appointment.

Thank you for the work you do. I’d recommend your breakfast to anyone!

Board Search Breakfast


Traditional Board Search Processes Rarely Work

80% of board vacancies are never advertised and gaining a board appointment through traditional routes is highly competitive with there always being more candidates than there are opportunities. Anyone who has tried to gain a board appointment through a recruiter or by submitting written board applications (with the almost inevitable ‘thank you but no thank you’ response) will attest to this fact. 

The good news is that 50% of organisations with boards recruit new board members each year, which means there are thousands and thousands of opportunities available. So, whilst the process is undoubtedly competitive, thousands of people successfully gain new appointments each year and you can too. But…

Most people go about finding and gaining a board appointment all wrong. They put their efforts in the wrong place and when that doesn’t work, they do the same again, get frustrated, or quit. If this sounds like you or you can’t find opportunities (or aren’t getting appointed) then it is likely you are doing one of three things wrong. There is a better way

Successful Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) Do Things Differently

Specifically, they are clear about three things:

  1. The organisations they are targeting,
  2. Why they should be appointed to the boards of those organisations,
  3. How they will be appointed.

Attend the Board Search Breakfast and discover how to answer these questions for yourself and what you need to do to start or develop a successful board career today.

The Board Search Breakfast unpacks these elements and helps you implement a clear and simple framework that will get you appointed. In particular, it focuses on the three ‘core pillars’ of a board appointment – the three things you must understand if you want a board appointment or develop a board career. 

What to Expect

This event runs for just 90 minutes starts and finishes early on a Friday morning (AEST) and is going to help you do three things:

  1. Define your target organisations – the names of businesses that you want and can be appointed to in 2021.
  2. Articulate your pitch – the reason you should be appointed to those boards – or boards just like them.
  3. How to implement a simple three-step process quickly and easily and that could see results in as quick as just 30 days!


  1. What board opportunities exist and are right for you.
  2. What the critical things that a Chair look for in a successful candidate – there are just five of them.
  3. The documents you need – how to write a compelling CV and application.
  4. Where to find opportunities – and create your own where you have no competitors.
  5. What the four paths are to a board appointment – and how 65% of people are appointed.
  6. How to separate yourself from your competitors and dare them not to appoint you and,
  7. How you can get appointed within 12 months – if not far sooner – regardless of your level of experience and with no cold calling!
