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.
