Terms & Conditions

Refunds for all our individual events are available if notice is given three business days prior by email or telephone, or one month prior to first session of our programmes. After this, a transfer to another event will be given. Cancellations on the same business day will not generally be eligible for a refund or transfer, however you may substitute someone to come in your place. In the case of exceptional circumstances let us know and we will consider a refund/transfer.

This event is designed for those in a position to realistically target the more competitive board roles, which usually involves senior experience in large and/or complex organisations. 

What are non-executive recruiters looking for in a board candidate? What do they want to know about you? And how does your ‘pitch’ really come across?

This hour-long session is a chance to connect informally with leading headhunters working to source quality, diverse candidates for listed boards and other large, complex organisations (we expect you will meet 2 headhunters at the session). You will gain a brief insight into their work and receive supportive feedback on your ‘elevator pitch’. 

After an introduction, you will then meet the headhunters in a small group via Zoom’s breakout rooms functionality. You will have the chance to practise introducing yourself succinctly (1 minute maximum, please!) as a prospective or actual board member, and receive feedback and advice where applicable. 

Who should attend this webinar?

This session is suited for those who are actively targeting senior, competitive non-executive roles and/or looking to expand their headhunter connections. It is a chance to make informal connections with the headhunters participating, but more importantly to refine how to present yourself in future to recruiters as a (prospective or actual) board member.
