As is the case in any industry, the Board Director vertical has specific requirements that are a must to land coveted Board seats. Most aspiring as well as experienced Directors approach Board Directorship opportunities in much the same way they would apply for a job - this is a big mistake. Even when working with an executive / Board search or placement agency, packaging yourself properly first is a must! The fact is that both aspiring and experienced Board Directors of all ages are still in high demand, however, if you are not viewed as having 'next-gen Director' qualities and haven’t properly packaged yourself for serious consideration, your chances of appointment are greatly minimized. Remember, the key to landing additional or your first Board seat is in your packaging... Make the effort to do it right.
