If you are seeking salient strategies to address your board career challenges and aspirations, yet are time poor or remotely located, then our Directors at a Distance webinar, a cut down version of our Getting Started workshop is the ideal alternative and opportunity to join us.
Facilitated by WOB Executive Director Claire Braund in two hour and a half long sessions you will be given tangible advice that may just provide that 'Ahha' moment you've been looking for to achieve a more fulfilling career pathway.
Many of us are convinced that we have the skills and wisdom to contribute to the boardroom, but don't know enough about the role or the board recruitment process to position ourselves to get there. Others are intrigued by the possibility of having a real impact on society through directorship, but need convincing that their experience is transferable to the boardroom, along with some insights into how to access the roles. If either of these sounds like you, you will enjoy this workshop and leave with a renewed commitment to finding a board role.
The workshop content has been developed over many years working to help hundreds of women take action to address their career challenges and aspirations.
The topics covered include:
- Managing your career and how to include a NED or 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.
Suited to people:
- Looking at long-term career options
- Thinking about or already on a board
- Seeking strategic and practical advice
- Looking for an influential support network
This workshop is split into two sessions (you will have to be able to attend both to complete the workshop):
Thursday 1 August 2019 (12:00noon- 1:30pm AEST)
Thursday 15 August 2019 (12:00noon - 1:30pm AEST)
