Next Generation

Helping aspiring and ambitious new board members connect with organizations seeking to build better boards.

Exchange between experienced board members and newcomers

  • New board members have to understand the business – its strategies, operations, risks, and management team – as well as the responsibilities and culture of the board and its committees. This all takes time and can be overwhelming.

    Our extensive knowledge, helpful publications and years of experience help prepare and train prospective board members. There are a number of crucial areas to be clarified up-front, such as: What are the right questions to ask if you are looking for a board position? How do you choose a suitable board and what is the best way to position yourself? Which board role best fits your skills? There are further important aspects to be considered as well: How does a board chose a new member? What are their criteria? What are the attributes that headhunters work with?

    We enable an exchange between experienced board members and newcomers with our wide network, thus helping you find answers to these questions and to quickly contribute meaningfully to board meetings.
