The process of becoming a director may seem mysterious and magical – as if an invisible hand takes a few select professionals and gives them a corporate board seat.
This, of course, is a myth. The reality is much more intentional than magical. In fact, clear intention, educated choices, coherent strategy, time investment and flawless execution are all you need to eventually make your director dream a reality.
In this webinar, board expert and Watermark Make Your Mark Advocacy Award winner Olga Mack will address five questions that most professionals have in the beginning of their journey:
• What are the key responsibilities of a board of directors?
• What type of board opportunities exist?
• Why serve on a corporate board of directors?
• How do you land a corporate board position?
• What are the best ways to build great relationships that can lead to a corporate board seat?
