The common thread for winning companies, with regarding bottom-line performance, is that these organisations have taken a systematic approach to ED&I and leadership development.
WB Directors’ work for our corporates is all about inspiring and encouraging employees to stay in business and get to the top. We actively help organisations strengthen the pipeline of future leaders by supporting people to think differently about their careers and encouraging them to consider taking on a board role to enhance their leadership and oversight skills. Consequently, we advocate the benefits of gaining non-executive experience on a non-conflicting, voluntary board at any career stage. The strategic leadership experience and governance knowledge you will gain from sitting on a board will enhance networks and catalyse for many ambitious professionals enabling them to reach the next level.
WB Directors, when meeting your employees, and talented professionals, actively encourage them to manage their careers and find a professional development strategy that works for them. Our focus is on giving the professionals that we meet research-backed tips they can test and try out the next day as they navigate their unique career circumstances.
We know from research that the under-represented group, female or male, may need to employ additional strategies to secure the success they merit. Our workshops have been designed to support your employees in their development, and we engage with them after our workshops or talks should they reach out to us for further support as part of a Corporate Partnership with us.

Employee Representative Groups
WB Directors have, over many years, worked with and enabled Employee Representatives Groups (ERGs) to deliver skills-based talks and workshops via our Corporate Partnership offerings. ERG members at Corporate Partner organisations feel empowered by our ‘Power-Hour’ talks because they are research-backed and delivered effectively. ERGs are a great way to communicate WB Director Corporate Partnership benefits to your employees as during these talks, we engage with them in owning their careers whilst at the same time planting various ‘board’ development seeds with them, in line with this ‘7 Reasons’ article. Being involved with your community as a leader can be very empowering and aid social mobility.
