Defining your unique value proposition: The journey to Board Mandates

The course registration is closed. Please contact the ILA team for support –

Course outline

The goal of this course is to help new Directors or Executives who wish to take on mandates as Independent Directors to have a clear and effective strategy in finding the right mandates. It will also help experienced Directors who search for new challenges to reposition themselves on the market.

Based on the view from an Executive Search professional, the course will give you insight on what Boards are looking for to fill Independent Director positions in terms of tangible and intangible skills. The session will be highly interactive, putting participants in real life situations (interview with a Board), asking them to identify their added value, to formulate their Unique Value Proposition and to think about their specific soft skills that they can bring to a Board etc.

The course will also allow you to exchange with an Experienced Independent Director, who will share his experiences and provide you the opportunity to ask questions and to gather insight on how to acquire Independent Director mandates.
