Being invited to join a board of directors is a great honour. It would enable you to make an enhanced contribution to the success of an organisation. However, it involves responsibilities and risks.
I have prepared this FREE 20-page A4 report to help you ensure that before you join the board of a particular organisation you have already checked it out and are satisfied that it is the right position for you. Remember, where regulation and litigation are concerned ignorance is not an excuse.
Directors are involved in an organisation at a higher, more strategic level. You will have greater leverage and be able to make a greater contribution.
If you and the company are a good fit and you have undertaken appropriate due diligence, then you will be set to start making your contribution with a mutual understanding of what is required of you, clarified relationships and an appreciation of how the board operates.
Appointment as a director can be a natural stage in your career development and an exceedingly rewarding activity.20page A4 report
