Getting Started: Realising your board potential

When:  Aug 17, 2020 from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM (AEST)

2 x 1.5 hour webinars + 1 hour follow-up webinar

Do you have the skills and experience to contribute to a board, but don't know enough about the role or the recruitment process to position yourself to get there? Are you intrigued by the possibility of leveraging your skills to boards and giving back through directorship, but need to know how your experiences are transferable to the boardroom and where to access the roles. If this sounds like you, you will find this workshop full of great practical advice with lots of action points you can use to find a board role. 

Many of us are convinced that we have the skills and wisdom to contribute to the boardroom, but don't know enough about the role or the board recruitment process to position ourselves to get there. Others are intrigued by the possibility of having a real impact on society through directorship, but need convincing that their experience is transferable to the boardroom, along with some insights into how to access the roles. If either of these sounds like you, you will enjoy this workshop and leave with a renewed commitment to finding a board role.

The workshop content has been developed over many years working to help hundreds of women take action to address their career challenges and aspirations. The topics covered include:

  • Managing your career and how to include a NED or trustee position
  • About directorship; the role, duties and legal responsibilities of directors
  • Directorship opportunities; market intelligence on board roles and how to apply
  • Doing yourself justice when applying for board roles.

The workshop is practical, strategic and interactive. Participants are engaged and supported by the Women on Boards team and encouraged to make use of the wider WOB "network of influence".

Suited to people:

  • Thinking about or already on a board
  • Seeking strategic and practical advice
  • Looking for an influential support network
  • Looking at long-term career options

A follow-up webinar is offered to assist you to refine your WOB Profile, track your progress and find suitable board and committee roles.


  1. Monday, 17 August 2020 (3:30 pm - 5:00pm AEST)
  2. Thursday, 27 August 2020 (3:30 pm - 5:00pm AEST)
You need to attend both dates to complete the workshop.

Once the workshop is completed you will then be given a date for your 1 hour follow-up/check-in webinar with Claire Braund to review your progress.
