Don’t be a Carla, the rules of network engagement with Sheila Ronning


Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga speaks with Sheila Ronning about using your network and your personal brand to help you get on boards.


Sheila broke the mould in 2002, launching Women in the Boardroom as the first to form such an organisation with customised executive training programs and networking opportunities. She has created a proven program and process to get women their first second or third corporate board seat.


Her first board was the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce in the late 90s. And since then, she's been on a range of business industry and not for profit boards.


Some of us are actually finding we have a bit more time on our (freshly washed) hands at the moment, so it might be a good time to examine your network and your personal brand. This interview will give you the encouragement you need, as well as the resources – Sheila has generously offered access to her webinar on this for Take on Board listeners - you have 30 days to take advantage of this generous offer from Sheila.
