Boardroom Ready is a niche consultancy matching employed senior executives with a non-conflicting board as ‘board observer’* for 12 months to gain real commercial boardroom experience. Each senior executive is meticulously matched, based on their specific aspirations, requirements and skill-set, as a board observer on a ‘Host Board’ looking for just that skillset. Hear from some of our successful matches here!
The Boardroom Ready programme:
- We research and work with a wide range of industries to find AIM listed, privately owned and SME companies to act as host boards
- We interview the senior executive to fully understand their individual drivers, needs, motivation and commitment
- If selected, they are coached to prepare them for discussions with potential host boards, and then matched with a host board based on mutual benefits
- Over the 12-month programme, they are matched with one of our experienced board and NED coaches to broaden their understanding of the boardroom, its processes, influences and functions
- They are mentored informally by the CEO / Chair of the host board throughout the programme
- Our experts work with them to refine and enhance their Executive Bio and LinkedIn profile
- They are also coached in Networking and Personal Brand
- Partnering with the Non-Executive Directors’ Association, the programme includes:
- a one year membership to NEDA
- a full one-day certificated masterclass, ‘The Essential NED Training Course’ covering all aspects of governance and compliance necessary for aspiring or new Non-Executive Directors
- a copy of the latest The Non-Executive Directors’ Handbook

* The role is for a ‘board observer’ and is a non-paid role. To ensure that there is no confusion about their legal status, they are not appointed, nor do they act as a director, nor are they paid. They have no voting rights, do not instruct or direct the board in any way and are not part of the formal decision-making process. They do not form part of the quorum of a board meeting and are bound by the host board’s confidentiality rules. They can offer insights and opinions based on their expertise or experiences.
