Landing Board Seats 
With Speaker Mike Lorelli

Landing Board Seats is designed to help make yourself marketable as a serious Board of Director candidate.  Waiting for the phone to ring is not an effective strategy. You need a carefully constructed marketing plan, together with ‘Board Sticky’ documents. . . your LinkedIn profile, your resume, your Value Proposition, and your Bio. The good news is that today, there are 20,000 private equity portfolio companies. . . 85% with Boards. This is your hunting ground.

This IERG webinar takes you through:

  • Understanding your reasons for seeking Board work
  • The right path to muscle-build your Board credentials
  • Creating your messaging:
o   Your Board Bio (different than your standard Bio)
o   Your Board resume (different than your resume)
o   Your LinkedIn profile. It’s not just about your outbound marketing. You want to be ‘found’ as recruiters find candidates on LinkedIn
o   Crafting your value proposition
  • Going to market
  • Questions that you will be asked, and questions that you should ask!

Your desired approach is a carefully developed marketing plan to enhance your attractiveness as an Outside Director candidate and build your confidence to deliver the knock-out punch in the interview process. The webinar covers the critical interview questions and helps you crisply construct your answers. Having your personal ‘Skills Map’ that shows how you fit a Board functional or experience void is one key aspect to have ready to be delivered verbally, and perhaps also in your material submissions to the recruiter, or other executive leading the search.
