How to be the Tallest Duck in the Pond, with Mike Lorelli
A comprehensive guide to landing board seats
Do you get a second chance to make a first (Board) impression? No!
And that’s because there are only 70,000 Board seats in the US. And since only a fraction turn over every year (~8,500 seats annually) if you get the interview, you need to drive it home!
What you need is a guide to help you make yourself marketable as a serious Board candidate. And I’ve got the perfect guest today to help you: Mike Lorelli.
Mike is on 5 Boards today. He’s also Masters Certified by both the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) and the American College of Corporate Directors (ACCD).
On today’s show, Mike talks us through
- Understanding your reasons for seeking Board work
- The right path to muscle-build your Board credentials
- Crafting your Board Bio
- Creating your Board resume
- Designing your LinkedIn profile
- Crafting your value proposition
- Developing your elevator speech
- Going to market
Mike’s approach covers the critical interview questions and helps you crisply construct your answers, in a way that is natural to you.
Let’s Get Social!
I absolutely love connecting with listeners on social media. I’m most active on LinkedIn. (And yes, I do personally post and respond to my accounts!)
This is a great way to hear my latest thinking, get the inside track on new products, and occasionally see a picture of my adorable toddler.
