The North West needs more female board directors and trustees so come along to a networking evening with wine and nibbles to broaden your understanding of the range of opportunities out there, understand how your skills and experience are transferable and to meet other board members, both current and future.
The WOB network is here to support you and can connect you, via these evenings, with other North West women who are on or interested in boards.
The purpose of this event is to introduce you to the different types of board opportunities across the sectors and to hear from a panel of board directors with a wealth of experience, who will share their individual journeys to the boardroom. As well as picking up insights and ideas, this will be a great opportunity to broaden your networks. Sarah Perris WOB's North West Ambassador, Presenter and Coordinator will be facilitating and chairing the evening.
Sarah is Managing Partner of Perris-Myatt, which helps individuals and organisations from grass-roots to global to build their brands and to enhance their reputation by communicating more productively with internal and external audiences. She is an experienced executive and non-executive director, trustee and board advisor in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Currently a Trustee for the Twin & Multiple Birth Association and for the Eifion Trust. Previously de-facto Director for Bentley Motors and a school Governor.
Speakers to be confirmed
"The session on Wednesday was a true inspiration to me. It was just what I needed at this time. The speakers you chose shared great insights on what NED roles they'd done, why they'd chosen them and how they got them. I also liked the Q&A session where the panel shared their hints on how to demonstrate what you will bring to the organization." March 2016
Drinks and light nibbles will be provided.
