About the event

We are pleased to announce that Impact Boards EM and NED Career Services will host a one-hour complimentary interactive online webinar featuring Board professional recruiter and experienced Board educator, Michael Clancy.

This will be the first introductory event, following the recent announcement of our partnership. This session will provide a high-level perspective for both current Board Directors and aspiring Directors as they seek to expand their Board roles. This introductory seminar will be followed by three dedicated seminars in the fall. The full series will be available to IBEM members in their subscription, and to non-members for a fee.

In this introductory seminar, Mike will address the following questions for a broad constituency of Board ready professionals and existing Directors wishing to expand their portfolios:

When starting a portfolio NED career you will be told the hardest part is to secure your first role.

  • What about after that?
  • How do you build on the foundation of the first role?
  • How hard is it to build your portfolio up to three or four roles?

In addressing these questions, Mike will drill down on these topics:

  • Managing the shift from potential NED to experienced NED - Have you eliminated the first time NED risk?
  • What perceptions has your first role created? - The outside “looking in” and you “looking out”      - Will more people be interested in you?      - What will you be interested in now?
  • Does your networking change? - Do you slow down the outbound traffic and wait for the inbound?
  • What are your “reasons to be in touch” now?
  • Be honest – was securing the first role down to “a bit of luck”?
  • Managing your CV and key messages
  • Timing – when is it ideal to land future roles?

Mike will draw on practical cases to talk through some of the key issues of building out a portfolio and facilitate a Q&A session. Please RSVP as places are limited and subject to strict attendance rules.
