Board Direction's Board Search Breakfast (7am to 8:45am)
Gaining a board appointment is a highly competitive process despite that there are thousands of organisations looking for Non Executive Directors at any given time. The challenge for aspiring, and even existing, directors is two fold – the first is finding the opportunities and the second is actually getting appointed.
For many, gaining the first or a subsequent board directorship can be arduous and time consuming. The journey towards a board appointment will be even more frustrating if you do not start early, you rely on your existing or stale networks or you do not fully understand the complexities of how board appointments are made. Further, not understanding what Chairs want to see in successful candidates or where to find board opportunities will cripple your chances of being appointed.
This journey can be even more frustrating if you don’t understand the way board appointments are made or how to circumnavigate these ‘rules’.
This event is hosted by David Schwarz - the CEO of Board Direction, Australia's leading board recruitment expert and a Top 10 LinkedIn user with over 20,000 connections. He will show you, in practical terms, how you can 'dare them not to appoint you' and will explain in detail what you need to do to gain a board appointment.
Specifically, you will learn about:
the REWARDS of a board appointment;
how to FIND and TARGET organisations;
how LONG it takes to get appointed;
how much you could be PAID;
the FIVE critical things Chair's look for;
the FOUR paths to a board appointment;
the must have DOCUMENTS you need;
PLUS all attendees will also receive the Board Appointments Book: E-Book for free.
Don't wait to find out the hard way what you should have done to achieve your board aspirations - find out how to truly 'dare them not to appoint you'.
