Path to the Boardroom (Career Series #51)
Colin Moor will engage the audience in an interactive discussion about how the world of Board directors is changing, who are boards looking for today, and how best to assess whether a Directors' roles is right for you.

Today there is much discussion about the role of Board Directors in both the corporate and non-profit world. Their unique responsibilities are important to the effective governance of any organization. Because Board membership can come with attractive compensation and other perks, many people entertain the ambition to become a member of a Board. However, the selection of an individual to become a Director is a highly competitive process. Most professionals, despite considerable success in their careers, may not make the cut. In this seminar, Colin will also cover the realities and trends of the Board marketplace, what are the search strategies that are most effective in discovering opportunities and what are the different kinds of Boards to consider.
