Here’s an opportunity to enhance your business knowledge and strategic acumen. I’ve developed this webinar not only for those who already support a board and want to maintain governance expertise. It’s also highly practical for astute assistants who want to enhance their depth of business knowledge and strategic acumen.
There are a number of good reasons for paying attention to governance. You may already support a board and your employer’s governance systems. Perhaps you work alongside an executive who’s responsible for providing reports to the board. Before I entered the world of governance, I worked with a CEO. Month after month, we prepared materials for board meetings, yet it was some time before I understood the nuances of how and why the board functioned as it did. Gaining that understanding helped me elevate my contributions.
You may be looking for ways to upskill and enhance your career prospects
You may be thinking, as we all should, about long term career prospects and aspirations. If you’ve been thinking of upskilling and wondering where to focus your efforts, this may be a logical fit. Perhaps increasing your strategic acumen is something you’ve been considering. When you begin to dive into the world of governance, this opens insights into the challenges and opportunities your executive team is facing on behalf of the organisation. The better informed we are, the better equipped we are to participate in strategic conversations and undertakings.
You may want to serve on a professional association board, or understand principles that guide how boards function
Are you a member of a professional association that has its own board? If you’ve ever considered putting yourself forward as a candidate for board service, you’ll need to understand the principles of governance in order to build credibility and be an effective board member. Perhaps you’ve helped elect people to board positions for such associations, and would like a better understanding of governance principles and board accountabilities.
