What our alumni say about the course:
“I’ve done the AICD course and it’s great; what it does is it teaches you the things you need to know as a director but you walk away from it & you’re not sure what boards you’re suited to and you’re still not sure what you bring to a board… and that’s this course does. If I had my time again I would do them the other way around. Because the real key for me was this course helps you understand & articulate what you bring to a board and gives really practical advice on finding a board that you’re a good match for and that’s a good match for you”
“Thoroughly enjoyed the content and got a lot out of the process of understanding my why and value proposition…but more so getting to meet other people on the same journey was priceless.”
