Getting your Board CV right can be difficult and time-consuming, requiring considerable thought and focus. In fact, many people are still caught in the mindset of creating a Board CV that looks like a traditional resume for a corporate role instead of one that signals they are ready for the boardroom.
The key purpose of a Board CV is to get you noticed by those involved in the selection process and highlight what value you will bring to the board or committee.
Learning outcomes from this workshop:
- A clearer understanding of your board related competencies and the value you will bring to a board.
- Greater awareness of how to express your technical and transferable skills and experience.
- Clarity on the structure, format, and language of a CV.
- Tips on what boards are looking for and how to reflect these in your CV and in an interview.
- A Board CV that you can either continue to refine or take to someone to polish.
- One x 2.5 hour virtual workshop with slides and helpful handouts (max 10 participants)
- Two x 15 minute videos (Your Board CV Fundamentals & Your Board Key Mistakes & Case Studies) to watch in your own time.
- A 1 hour follow-up session to review your progress.
