Board KickStarter Breakfast- March 2015

Speakers: Anthea Green and Monique Conheady

Take away messages:

  • Use your contacts - you don't need 300 of them, just five that matter.

  • Develop a one page resume.

  • It could take 6 - 12 months to find the right role for you - maybe more. Be patient.

  • Assess your appetite for risk and do your due diligence on any organisation you are considering joining as a NED.

  • A common - but not the only - pathway is to join a a not-for-proft board, then a government board and then a commercial board.

  • Don't be the Chair as your first NED role!
