The Board Boost Programme
Board Boost helps you prepare for, and increase your chances of securing, your next paid-for board of directors/advisory board position. Board Boost is a six-month program based on a proven methodology. It takes you through a series of practical steps towards building your ideal, individualized board portfolio. This includes designing your personal board build plan, your individual profile and visibility development strategy, plus custom-designed research and market exploration.
Board Biographies and Executive Resumes
A Board Bio is an essential document needed to secure your next board role. Different in nature to a standard professional resume and targeted to a specific audience, a Board Bio communicates your potential value proposition as a board member. Through our Board Bio service, your career highlights, credentials and accomplishments will be captured and crafted into a narrative that truly speaks to the unique value you bring to the boardroom. Our expert team can also create/polish your Executive Resume to help you create consistently powerful messaging across all your professional documents.
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 15% of our members on a yearly basis. Through active community engagement and our member-to-member referrals, we estimate that a further 25% 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 700+ talented leaders, as well as connect to the global board ecosystem, then we very much look forward to welcoming you!
