Laura Miller has joined the Advisory Board of Thames 21. She said: "The pre-interview prep with Rachel Tranter was of immense value in solidifying my confidence before I met with the interview panel. There was a very quick turnaround between the invitation to interview and the interview itself—I was able to fit into Rachel's schedule the day before the panel occurred. Going through the brief with her in detail and talking about the organization and what I have to offer them put me into the right frame of mind to transition right to the interview the next day. Also, I believe one reason my CV and covering letter made such a good impression in the first place is because Women on Boards provides not only templates of how to do these, but through course and other online resources, the rationale behind them, the reasoning why they work."

Liz Wilson has joined The Place, home of London Contemporary Dance School as a Governor. She said:  "Just wanted to thank you and Women on Boards for your help and support over recent years - particulary the interview coaching you gave me a couple of times.  It all eventually paid off! Women on Boards has been a brilliant resource in establishing and growing my board career, and I've benefitted greatly from many of the resources on offer. I particularly valued the masterclasses - which felt like a big investment at the time, but which were hugely worthwhile - and the one to one interview preparation coaching. Both helped me understand how to think like and present myself as a non executive rather than an executive, and that's been a big part of my success in being appointed to the Board of Governors at The Place."

Vicky Morris has joined the board at  Velindre University NHS Trust.  She said " After signing up with Women on Boards in July 2021, I have accessed the majority of your webinars and accessed some 1;1 support for pending interviews and I have been short listed for 2 out of 3 roles (remunerated) and short listed/ interviewed for 1 Trustee role (result pending).  I have been successful with gaining a Non Executive Director role with a Health Trust in Wales as chair of their Quality and Safety Committee as well as Board member. (Velindre University Health Board).
Having reflected on your guidance, advice and the networking opportunities, I feel I have, as a result of those reflections, performed at my best, both in my Board Profile/ CV, headhunter interviews and in the final interviews across all these opportunities, whatever the outcome. So a massive thank you for your support in helping me obtain my first non executive role and I will continue to access your WoB support as I build my portfolio career".

As a result, before I knew it, I had not just one but three NED/Trustee interviews lined up! Kudos to Rachel Tranter who gave me some excellent 1:1 Board interview prep tips which I was pleased to find I was eligible to at no extra cost.

I have no doubt that the combination of these WoB services contributed to my landing this great Trustee role with Aldridge Education Multi Academy Trust who run schools across the country that focus on developing entrepreneurial and enterprise skills in children from disadvantaged backgrounds."

The WoB Chairs programme cohort is a fantastic resource of inspiration, support and fun. It was one of the members who introduced me to the opportunity at ITI Capital - my first FI board role. Totally blown away by the "kindness of strangers" and utterly sold on membership of WoB. The individual members (women and men!) are knowledgeable, supportive and unstinting in giving of their time. Fantastic."
