Build your board CV

An intensive workshop focusing on enabling you to develop a high quality, board-ready CV.  If you have the time and the mindset, building your own CV better enables you to express your capability and experience - clearly highlighting to those involved in the selection process the value you bring to a board or committee.

From this virtual workshop you come away with a professional board CV that pitches you where you need to be, not where you think you are.

A key outcome is to enable you to get onto the short-list, and ultimately to an interview, where you will be confident in speaking to (and expanding on) your CV. 

Workshop inclusions

  • One x 2.5 hour virtual workshop with slides and helpful handouts (max 12 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 virtual session to review your progress. (16 May 2.00 pm - 3.00 pm AEST)
