Debbie’s top pieces of advice to getting a board position are:

Tip 1: Be judicious in selection of a Board to target – do your research and make sure you like and respect the Chair and CEO.

Tip 2: Winning the first Board position is key – so think wider than just public companies consider smaller, private companies, not for profits, charities and consider investment to secure a position

Tip 3: Get help from an expert to prepare a specific Board CV to put yourself forward.
