    The Content

    The series consists of 15 x 45-minute webinars. Each webinar’s content is standalone. You can complete them as a series or select those topics relevant to you during each stage of the board appointment process. 

    Of fundamental importance is knowing which board you want to be appointed to but also which sort of board would actually appoint you. At the end of this session, you will understand the journey ahead, how long it will take and how much you might get paid.

    This webinar addresses the following elements:
    a) The risks and rewards of a Non Executive directorship.
    b) Setting your aspiration and defining the right board appointment for you.
    c) How long it will take to get appointed.
    d) What you could be paid.

    There are literally thousands of board opportunities available and whilst you might be interested in many of them, knowing which sort of board is right for you is key. Without this clarity, you will be unfocused and spend time chasing the wrong sort of opportunities. At the end of this session, you will understand what sort of opportunities are available and where to find them.

Responding to these is the basis of your board profile and the reason you should be appointed.
