MAKE AN EFFORT TO DO IT RIGHT
As is the case in any industry, the Board Director vertical has specific requirements that are a must to land coveted Board seats. Unfortunately, most aspiring and experienced Directors approach Board Directorship opportunities like they would apply for a job — this is a big mistake. Even when working with an executive/Board search or placement agency, packaging yourself properly first is a must! The fact is that both aspiring and experienced Board Directors of all ages are still in high demand; however, if you are not viewed as having ‘next-gen Director’ qualities and haven’t adequately packaged yourself for serious consideration, your chances of appointment are greatly minimized. Remember, the key to landing an additional or your first Board seat is in your packaging… So make an effort to do it right.
