Welcome to the board

C-Suite Strategies to Achieve that Dream Job

To apply for that dream job you need to start early; it pays to be prepared. You should lay the foundation through networking and social media and then create a personal and effective Linkedin profile, CV and application letter.

Richard will help you identify new perspectives on your skills and experience, show you how to package them and use his wordsmithing skills for the essential documents. Rely on him as your sounding board along the way.

Board appraisal

Board Performance Evaluation/Director Appraisal

Good governance requires that performance of the board be evaluated at least once a year and that at least once in three year by undertaken by an independent agent.

Richard has developed an efficient process for such evaluations and is pleased to have been invited to repeat evaluations annually, thus providing consistent tracking of improvements in performance.

I contacted Richard because I was dissatisfied with my current role. After two sessions on Zoom I decided that I would be happy to stay for a couple more years but, in the meantime, lay the foundation for a new role thereafter.
