About the event

In partnership with Women on Bords, join Maria Blakley to learn about how and why adding a board or committee appointment to your CV is a sure way of drawing attention and validating your capabilities, whilst catapulting your career up the ladder of success. Individuals that join boards are able to use their experience and technical skills to influence an organisation, whilst at the same time gaining exposure to a wide range of issues from the perspective of a director and building confidence, expertise and networks.

Who should attend this talk?

The talk is suited to ambitious individuals at various career stages seeking to better understand how being on a board would benefit their career.

7 Reasons why being on a board is good for your career

● A directorship is a point of difference on your CV when applying for a new role/promotion.

● You will build market and industry knowledge and networks through exposure to a diverse range of issues from the perspective of a director.
