Become an effective and agile director in an age of urgency

About this episode

Serving on a Board of Directors is a milestone many executives choose to pursue, and with good reason. It’s a prestigious role and can be exciting and rewarding.

The problem is, most people seeking a Board position approach it like they would a job search. They update their resume, let their network know they’re looking, and search online.

But resumes and cover letters aren’t the go-to method when it comes to landing a Board seat. Especially since Board seats are a niche area of executive search – and a highly competitive one at that. In fact, traditional board and advisory solutions are suited only for the world’s largest public companies.

So today we’re introducing you to an up-start which is changing the board search business model. In Touch provides flexible solutions that allow companies of all sizes to discover the impact experience executives, advisors, and board members can have on growing their business. 

In Touch’s CEO, Matthew Roberts, joins the podcast to explain how his firm helps you

  • Dig into your unique selling points to understand what you can offer a board and how to contribute as a board member
  • Master the art of applying for board roles and translating your talents to meet a brief
  • Become an interview pro through simulations and real-time feedback on your interview technique
