Event Details

Board appointments are potentially life and career changing. In fact, statistics have shown that people who have Board Directorships in addition to an executive role are: more appointable, earn more, are unemployed less and have better networks and connections. They are also able to future proof their careers better, have more successful retirements and weather unexpected career changes strongly.


However, gaining a board appointment is a highly competitive process despite there being thousands of organisations looking for Non Executive Directors each year.

So, not starting your journey to a board career early, relying on existing or stale networks and not fully understanding the complexities of how board appointments are made will cripple your chances of being appointed to a board.

For many, gaining the first or a subsequent board directorship can be arduous and time consuming. The journey can be even more frustrating if you don’t understand the way board appointments are made or how to circumnavigate these ‘rules’.


Together, Board Direction & Launa Inman in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Marketing will show you, in practical terms, what you need to do to FIND board opportunities, GET appointed & FAST TRACK a board appointment.
