Landing Board Seats is a concise, 60 minute webinar designed to help make yourself marketable as a serious Board of Director candidate. The stark reality is that are only 59,000 Outside Board seats in the US, so what do YOU do to get the calls? The webinar takes you through:
Your desired approach is a carefully developed marketing plan to enhance your attractiveness as an Outside Director candidate, and build your confidence to deliver the knock-out punch in the interview process.
If you get the interview, you need to get on 2nd base. The webinar covers the critical interview questions, and helps you crisply construct your answers, in a way that is natural to you.
Having your personal ‘Skills Map’ that shows how you fit a Board functional or experience void is one of many aspects to have ready to be ‘delivered’ verbally, and perhaps also in your material submissions to the recruiter, or other executive leading the search process.
