Are you considering a position on a board?

Is your desire to take on a director / board position?

Are you familiar with all of the governance and compliance issues associated with such a position?

Do you know how to apply that knowledge to real life circumstances?

Have you started to market yourself correctly for this step into a whole new career path?

Following decades of maintaining director roles in my own businesses, I am joining a small selection of executives who are interested in a solution for all the above questions as they prepare to take on board and advisory roles for publicly and privately owned businesses and not for profits.

This program has been developed by one of Australia's leading knowledge brokers in board governance. The program includes:

  • Detailed documentation on all governance processes required by board directors
  • Full day facilitation and coaching of how to apply this theory to real life circumstances
  • Review of your professional marketing tools including CV, LinkedIn and more
  • Creation of professional bio videos to enable personalised marketing of yourself
  • Access to a library of hundreds of documents providing insight into how boards work
  • Connection with a community of executives and board directors
  • Personalised 1 on 1 mentoring through any individual challenges you incur
  • Professional marketing of your 'board ready' skills to the Board Connector network
  • Commencement of steps to your first board position


Board positions are currently available with many companies and age is not relevant to most of these positions. Most important is the knowledge, skills and contacts that you can bring to the table.

Currently we have only 3 seats left. If this is of interest to you please contact me to discuss your suitability for this program.

Kind regards
Grant Crossley
