The ability to develop strong networks is an important part of becoming a successful Director.
The Director tool box requires skills and competencies including governance, finance, strategy and risk – but having the right networks and using them, is an important tool, in fact probably one of the most important tools a Director can have.
Boards, understandably still rely on networks. When a new appointment is needed, directors will engage a consultant to identify the right candidates, but when that list is presented, inevitably the question is asked “who do we know?”. This is where your networks can work for you.
Suzanne Ardagh FAICD, a governance professional and Director of Board Advisory Services at Lester Blades Executive Search & Board Advisory, will provide insights and tips to help you build and utilise your networks to help you land that Board role.
