Building a Board CV online course


"NED CVs matter. They are not career bios. No, you will not get recruited purely on your CV …
It is the interview that really matters. But the NED CV can be the enabler.” 

Paul Drechsler CBE, President of the CBI & Portfolio NED

  • Operating in the boardroom: Becoming a credible candidate 
  • Areas of expertise Checklist 
  • Evidencing your expertise: Showcasing your achievements
