Defining your brand as a director

Speaking chair

Becoming a non-executive director is an increasingly challenging ambition. Where once the role may have been primarily of interest to retired executives, today more people from a wide variety of fields, many still in their ‘earning years’, are seeking out board positions.

For most emerging directors, getting the invitation to join their first board, and ensuring it is suitable for them and chosen wisely, is the first challenge.

This three part series takes a very practical look at the pathways taken by several directors who have been successful in establishing their boardroom careers, and explores their experiences and insights in regards to defining and promoting their brand to secure their initial board roles, and then leveraging their brand to build a board portfolio.

Please join us for the first event of the series and learn how to define your brand as a director.
