The Virtual Advisory Board is a community of highly-experienced, executive-level talent from 45 countries representing over 100 industry sectors.
Our members serve as Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) and offer advisory board consulting for businesses around the globe. Join our rapidly growing community to find your next board advisory or non-executive director (NED) role.
VAB offers a fast-track approach to building your personal and professional networks so that you can expedite your journey to new advisory board or non-executive director (NED) roles. Our community was founded on the premise that 80% of executives find board roles primarily through their personal networks. This is precisely the reason you will want to join VAB.
Instead of focusing specifically on board search services, we have built a community of like-minded professionals who support one another in building members’ individual networks and sharing career lessons that eventually lead to board placements.
Finding an advisory role is all about meeting business leaders and interacting with them: finding the right fit of skills and experience to push a business forward.
We learn both from one another as well as from external experts who work with executives, chairpersons, NEDs, etc. to update and fine-tune their advisory expertise.
Our members range from experienced advisory board professionals and NEDs to persons seeking their first board advisor roles.
VAB & Board Placements. What you should know before you apply to join VAB!
At VAB, we believe in transparency and will do our best to manage your expectations!
If you join VAB, you will be a highly valued member of our community.
However, before you join, we wish to make you aware that board of director and board
advisor placements are not our main objective. If you are joining VAB solely with the
expectation to be placed in a board or NED role, our organisation might not be the
right fit for you and may not fully meet your needs.
We expect to make direct placements for only about 10% of our members on a yearly
basis. Through active community engagement and our member-to-member referrals,
we estimate that a further 20% of members will be placed in board advisor or NED
roles each year.
If you are looking for opportunities to network with and learn from our community of
300+ talented leaders, as well as connect to the global board ecosystem, then we very
much look forward to welcoming you!
