The Virtual Advisory Board is a community of highly-experienced, executive-level talent (CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Angel Investors and Industry Experts) from 70+ countries representing over 125 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 prepare for your next board advisory or NED placement. 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 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 an invite-only community of like-minded professionals who support one another in building members’ individual networks and sharing career lessons that eventually lead to board placements.
We use a researched and vetted system to help match our members with new people and prospects that can guide them to board opportunities, business leads and entrepreneurial collaboration.
Facilitating Peer Learning
Our community consists of members committed to supporting one another in acquiring, developing and perfecting their board-relevant advisory skills. We continually learn from one another.
We host various types of events that help members connect with one another and share guidance and tips on building networks that boost their chances of finding board roles.
Boosting Board Visibility
Advancing toward new roles in the board advisory and board of directors space is about getting your story told. We help members communicate to the board universe that they are qualified and ready for new opportunities.
"VAB is a lot more than a network around boards. Mark and David were able to put together a such powerful network, one that work towards creating meaningful and intentional connections. They are really interested in serving and supporting you, shaping your personal experience by understanding your needs and using their 'networking power' to help you. From landing in a board, to joining the Board Tribes programme… from leading conversations around my passions with thought leaders to participating in amazing events, these two have taken the networking experience to the next level."
