Description

Better Board Recruitment workshop
Don’t wait until someone puts their hand up. Learn new strategies to find and recruit the best board members.

Great board members can add enormous value to your organisation. But where are they? And why aren’t they on your board? This workshop will help you understand the techniques that the best boards use to find and recruit outstanding board members.

No longer will you have to hope that someone puts their hand up - after you’ve coerced them - at the AGM to join the board.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to set up and conduct a skills audit for your board
  • How to identify the skills, expertise, traits, and characteristics required from your board members
  • How to prepare an effective Position Description
  • How to develop and implement an effective Screening, Interview and Induction Process
  • How to find new board candidates through five modern methods that the best boards use
  • How your constitution, culture, and board diversity can help or hinder your board recruitment


You will take away useful tools, techniques, and templates that you can start using straight away on your board.

This workshop is great for Chairs, directors, and other leaders of volunteer-based boards and is facilitated by Lisa Cook, Managing Director of Get on Board Australia.

About Lisa
Lisa is the Founder and Managing Director of Get on Board Australia. After a career in the Sydney corporate sector, Lisa moved to Adelaide and worked as a freelance marketing consultant. Her marketing and business management background led her to being approached by two organisations - a not-for-profit and a public company - to join their boards. The term "being thrown in the deep-end" finally started to make sense to her!

Even though Lisa had completed business management studies, what it means to be a director and learning how to successfully navigate the boardroom weren't part of the curriculum. To make matters worse, the only options for director education and development programs were way too expensive, particularly for volunteer directors.

So, Lisa decided to create something new, and specifically designed for people like her. Something for those future leaders who are at the start of their board careers and need some formal education and to learn some tips and tricks from experts and the experiences of others in the same situation. Thus, Get on Board Australia was started; an organisation catering to the unique development and education needs of new and aspiring company directors and board members.

Lisa believes that small volunteer-based organisations don’t have to miss out when it comes to securing stand-out board members. To this end, she writes regularly at GetOnBoardAustralia.com.au about how current board recruitment methods are broken and what your board should be doing about it, without having to spend any money.

Lisa will share new ways for you to find and recruit board members that don’t involve hoping someone puts their hand up at the AGM.
