Directors are constantly searching for their next board seat. It’s often critical for them as a means of income and source of financial freedom. Not only that, but directorships provide unprecedented means to influence an organization and, for a select few, an industry.
The question is then: “How do I find a board seat?” Sadly, that’s a loaded question that has many different answers and involves an incredible amount of time and energy in not only researching, but networking as well. It’s not a one-size fits all solution and very, very rarely becomes a situation where people are beating down your door for the opportunity to work with you.
This series is dedicated to answering the many ways that directors can search for, and eventually land, their next (or first) board seat. We will explore various ways to network, polish your presence, and how to stand out. After all, it’s about what you bring to the table, not where you’ve been.
