About the Webinar:

One common misconception surrounding board service is that your value proposition is built on having CEO or other C-Suite level experience. Yet boards are often in need of other backgrounds, sometimes even more than the background of a current or former CEO. Join this webinar to hear from three sitting board members who broke stereotypes and found board opportunities despite having "non-traditional" backgrounds. Learn how these candidates (who have financial, legal, and clinical experience) located their current and former opportunities, how their unique perspectives help them contribute as board members, and how they positioned themselves during their search. How do you avoid being pigeonholed by your targeted skill set? How do you position yourself to highlight your area of expertise as a strength, and not a weakness? Join us to learn more about how to position yourself as a viable board candidate, no matter how varied your experience may be.
