Topic: Roles and responsibilities as a NED & remuneration models

Topic: How to market yourself and the role of SoMe 
Description: This session is an introduction to marketing yourself for a NED role and what role SoMe plays. You can build your brand principally on LinkedIn, but you also need to be aware of, and use, other SoMe. At the very least, you should review your posts and images to avoid giving any mixed messages, even selecting your “friends”, likes and comments. 

To make the most of LinkedIn, you need to market yourself effectively. It is not a one-time event, but a continuous process that requires strategy, creativity, and consistency. This means creating a profile that showcases your skills, achievements, and personality, and that attracts more opportunities, and advance your career.

Topic: Build your board CV   
Description: Creating a board CV is a nuanced endeavour. Your resume and online presence serve as initial touchpoints with potential board contacts, so it's essential they're current and showcase your relevant accomplishments and capabilities. 

This session emphasizes the importance of making a favourable initial impression through your CV. 

Date: October, 2024
Topic: How did you land your first NED position?
Description: Becoming a non executive director (NED) can be a rewarding and challenging career move. NEDs provide independent oversight and strategic guidance to the executive management of an organization. They also bring valuable skills, experience, and networks to the boardroom. 

However, landing your first NED role can be difficult, especially if you don't have prior board experience. 

In this session, we will have a showcase with a real-life story, the faced challenges and how to be prepared and overcome those challenges. 

Date: November, 2024 
Topic: Make your elevator pitch 
Description: Your elevator pitch serves as your market value statement, crystallizing your goals and vision and articulating them effectively to others. It proves invaluable in various scenarios like networking events, sales meetings, and social media engagements. While not a universal fix, an elevator pitch is a versatile tool, adaptable to different contexts and individuals. 

This session equips you with the tools to be clear, concise, and compelling, and to leave a positive and memorable impression on your listener. 

There will also be two other connecting sessions that cover the topics of:

  • How to network for a board position, and
  • Learn from head-hunters
