Directors' Circles

Once you're in the boardroom, how can you stay up-to-date on the issues? And what are the opportunities to progress your non-executive career? 

For the fast-growing number of those in our network who are already serving on one or more boards, we offer regular events to address some common boardroom topics; connect with other non-executives and consider the opportunities to move into more competitive board roles.

We also send a regular Directors Circle e-newsletter to our NED subscribers and Champion members. To receive it please update your WOB profile [key field: "Do you have board experience?" set to: 'yes' ]. You may also need to upgrade your membership if you have joined as a free member. 

Directors Circle Dinners

They are informal, smaller occasions (maximum 25 people per event) over a meal*, which will allow a freeflow of discussion, sharing of ideas and of course networking. Each evening will have an expert speaker to introduce the topic and be there to answer any questions you may have. 

*Due to the Covid-19 lock down we are holding this event as a Directors' Circle Zoom Meeting. Fear not, this virtual session is designed to still include plenty of networking opportunities as well as, of course, topical insights from our main speaker. 



These morning briefings bring together NEDs on listed boards and headhunters who are working in that space. They share their insight and advice on how to put yourself forward for FTSE board roles, and the type of skills and experience required. 

They are a great way for you to listen to stories of experienced NEDs, understand the issues they have faced and to make high level connections with other senior women and Head Hunters and Consultants who work in the listed board space.

They are designed for those in a position to realisitically target listed board roles - which usually means having experience at Senior Executive level in FTSE or FTSE-equivalent organisations.  In the spirit of being an open network, we let you decide if you are in this cohort.
