Boardroom Insights for aspiring non executive directors

Women on Boards Boardroom Conversations are designed to inform and motivate, whilst providing you with new connections.

Come along to be inspired by the opportunities on boards in a sector you haven't previously considered, or for in-depth insights from current non-executives in an area you are targeting.  These events are also great opportunities to broaden your networks, regardless of where your board aspirations lie.  Both men and women are welcome.

In addition to London, we run our Boardroom Conversations across the UK including Manchester, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Reading, Cardiff, Leeds and Bristol.


WOB UK hosts two boardroom literacy events, designed to provide current and aspiring board members with core skills in areas where every board director and trustee needs a minimum level of knowledge:

  • Financial Literacy for the boardroom, sponsored by PwC
  • Cyber Literacy for the boardroom, sponsored by Cisco

These events typically run twice a year in London. If you cannot see an upcoming event in the Event Calendar, please email us at

FTSE NED Breakfasts

We hold these events every two months in London, in collaboration with Mentore. The format is a small breakfast of between 20 and 30 people with a speaker who is an experienced FTSE NED. At these breakfasts we normally have one top level NED Head Hunter in attendance. Over the last few years we have been supported by many Head Hunting firms as they are interested in meeting our top level subscribers. To date these are the firms that have attended these events; Warren Partners, Korn Ferry, Spencer Stuart, Norman Broadbent, Demeter, Zygos Partnership, Odgers Berndston, MWM Consulting, Heidrick & Struggles and Halsey Keetch.
