Reviews & Success
Does what we offer work? You bet. Board Direction has worked with over 2,000 clients and over 50,000 receive our weekly board search advice newsletters and board vacancy alerts. We could not have gained or maintained this level of support if what we did didn’t work.
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 others 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
Not Right for You?
We have done all we can to tailor the EXECUTIVE package to your needs but it still might be that it is not right for you. That is ok. The timing might not be right, you might not have the money or you don’t want to commit the time. They are all valid reasons and in this case, you should take a look at the ACCESS or ACCESS+ membership options which still provide access to the jobs and a board CV but are cheaper and require less intensity.
A Highly Competitive Process
Do you know why most people who want to become a non executive director fail to achieve their board aspirations despite their desire to do so? It is not because gaining a board appointment is a highly competitive process. Rather they don’t understand the nuances of the board appointment process and don’t persevere where others might. Don’t let that be you…
Join Today and let us take the stress out of your board search and appointment process.
