Taking on a non-executive director role can play a key part in your career strategy. As well as being a point of difference on your CV, a board position will give you the opportunity to develop new skills and networks and expose you to different markets, sectors and opportunities.
Based on Women on Boards’ popular workshop “Getting Started: realising your board potential”, this event will provide a fast-paced tour through everything you need to know about directorship and how to position yourself effectively as a candidate, including:

• Managing your career and how to include a NED / trustee position
• About directorship; the role, duties and legal responsibilities of directors
• Directorship opportunities; market intelligence on board roles and how to apply
• Doing yourself justice when applying for board roles
