E2W Workshop: 7 Reasons why being on a board is good for your career

From your PC, laptop or phone Tuesday 2nd March at 6PM

E2W Workshops are created to help build our member's knowledge and interests on topics that are relatable to Financial Services. We are pleased to be presenting an informative session around personal development. 

E2W Workshop:7 Reasons why being on a board is good for your career

The WOB talk ‘7 Reasons why being on a board is good for your career’ has been designed to support women and men to think strategically about board roles as part of their career strategy.
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 - even of very small organisations - 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 men and women at various career stages:

  • Who want to manage their careers strategically and build skills and influence;
  • Seeking to better understand how being on a board would benefit their career.
