Securing your first NED / Trustee role can be an uphill struggle, and adjusting from Executive to Non-Executive can be challenging. Everyone embarks on their journey to the board from different entry points, and we are here to help you identify where you are and therefore what you need to do next. Our job is to make your journey a lot less stressful and a lot less time consuming, and ultimately find that elusive first role!
Boardroom Ready specialises in all aspects of 2 key areas to support your Journey to the Board by:
- matching you with a real commercial board to gain practical, hands-on board experience, to enhance your CV and share during interview stage and giving you the edge over those with no board experience; and
- guiding you on how and where to find your first NED / Trustee role with our unique online course and 1-2-1 mentoring with highly experienced NEDs
We understand the journey you are embarking on and have experts to support you every step of the way.
We are a niche consultancy that matches senior executives with boards of non-conflicting AIM listed, privately owned and SME companies, to give them real commercial boardroom experience. The senior executive is meticulously matched with a board looking for their particular skillset, in the role of a ‘Quasi-NED’ for 12 months. The executive gains exposure to the realities of the boardroom, and the host board benefits from market and industry expertise.
Our extensive expertise doesn’t stop at board placements and continues with supporting you on one of the biggest frustrations of all, how to find and secure your first NED / Trustee role. We have a number of very practical solutions for you to suit every budget and entry point.
To make sure you have a full experience for your journey, we have also partnered with The Non Executive Directors Association and CV & Interview Advisors to help you.
Our team of highly experienced Non-Executives will mentor and coach you throughout, from making the transition from executive to Non-Executive, being interviewed by a board through to coping with virtual board meetings. Their role is to help you hit the ground running with real practical experience. The team will work with you to prepare you to be a strong contributor (and learner) in every board meeting, through just-in-time preparation.
