Tools and Tips for Better Boards and Better Directors

Boardroom INSIDER for… APRIL


Here at Boardroom INSIDER, I’ve produced a new, 12-module, one and a half hour training webinar on Udemy that walks you through the onboarding process.  Claim Your Seat in the Boardroom delivers a practical, step-by-step guide to help board-ready leaders and executives gain the knowledge, resources, and confidence to shape their successful personal “onboarding” program.  

  You’ll learn…

How corporate board searches actually work.
How to assess your own current “boardability.”
Turn your personal networks into onboarding networks.
Identify and target boardroom opportunities.

I produced Claim Your Seat in the Boardroom for C-level career executives, entrepreneurs, investors, company founders, and all of you who’ve reached a career level where board service is a real potential opportunity.  Included are Q&A thought starters and “homework” projects to round out the course.  

If you’re targeting a board role, or know someone in your network who is, head over to the Claim Your Seat in the Boardroom overview page and register today.  And here’s a bonus – through the end of April, I’ve arranged a special price for you – just use the discount code 00F9E77DBFCBE5855F74 for $5 off the standard $24.95 tuition fee.  Register today, let me know your thoughts on the program… and please leave some glowing reviews with Udemy
