Board Access Program


     

Executives exercise their leadership in organizations around the global every day. While many have strengths they could bring to board governance, director positions often seem out of reach.

The Board Access™ Program helps professionals with ambitions to serve on boards. It is designed to help you craft your professional development agenda and support you with resources to make it happen. The program is open to seasoned men and women globally.

Assessing Your Eligibility

Our program begins with your completion of an online assessment of your readiness to serve on board, using our Board Bona Fide™ best in class evaluation. This tool helps us to guide you about your eligibility and fit and identifies actions you can take to increase your candidacy.

Once you complete the assessment, you are automatically enrolled in our Board Bona Fide registry, our database for aspirational candidates who wish to be considered for positions in the future. If a company contacts us to conduct a search of our private registry for them and your profile is a strong fit, we contact you to see if you would like your name put forward. If you say yes, then we put you both in touch. We are not a search firm and do not receive fees for our candidate availability service.

The assessment, coaching and simulations have been invaluable in opening my perspective about what more I can do to effectively prepare for a position as a Board member. My coach, Donna Hamlin, is an incredible resource and brings a global set of experience and expertise across industries and geographies to help you think broadly but also engage locally in your career.

"The Board Access program has both helped me structure my thinking about what type of board position fits with my experience, interests and ambitions today and then developed my relevant brand and board profile to match my ideal fit. I found the board simulation and my time with my coach, Murray Cook, to be incredibly valuable is testing and evolving my thinking and skills to serve as a director.”
