Kylie Hammond CEO of Director Institute is professional, passionate and first class in recruitment and coaching. She is very well connected and knows what is happening in the marketplace which is critical information. She is truly an expert in her field. I certainly would use Director Institute’s services again and would not have my role today if it wasn’t for Kylie.
Kylie delivers a valuable service to those professionals serious about diversifying their career into board appointments. The passion for developing better, next generation boards is ever-present as witnessed through her energetic development of your personal brand, board awareness, and opportunities. Next-Gen Directors begin here.
I attended the Director Institute 2 day Intensive Platinum Executive Program, essential for Director ready professionals. The program covered the key elements needed to launch, be competitive and secure Board roles. Further, making sure that Advisory and Non Executive Directors know how to undertake thorough due diligence and promote their skills in the best way possible. Essential hands on and interactive program for aspiring Directors who want to be successful.
I recently attended Director Institute’s Platinum Executive Intensive workshop and would thoroughly recommend it as your first step into a Non-Executive Director Board appointment, Advisory Board or mentoring opportunities for young executives on the way up. The keynote speakers had extensive experience and were very generous with both insights and one on one feedback. The accelerated learning experience with a small group of like-minded people was invaluable.
I have worked with Director Institute for nearly two years. I have very much valued Kylie Hammond’s expertise and insights in pursuing Non-Executive Director roles especially ensuring that I addressed key issues in the search process. Kylie has assisted me to secure a number of of NED roles and I am happy to recommend her.
The Platinum Executive Intensive event I attended was absolutely worth the time. Kylie Hammond’s experience in this space has helped me immensely and taught me how to navigate the requirements of building a Board portfolio.
I have no hesitation in recommending Kylie and the Director Institute, particularly to those who are looking to make a difference beyond their current corporate roles. Kylie is passionate about creating the ‘next generation’ of Board Directors, the importance of Board composition, culture and always remembering why and for whom the Board exists. Kylie has a generosity of spirit that is evident in the way she engages with members, and the very natural and humble way she brings her extensive expertise and experience and practical insights to bear in personal coaching sessions or course settings – Kylie always has a ‘real world’ example to demonstrate a point. The Director Institute resources are extensive and the diversity of the membership – and the roles advertised – are to be commended.
I highly recommend contacting Director Institute for advice on the benefits of having an Advisory Board and also for the provision of suitable Advisory Board Members. We are a Leading Indigenous Contractor and we were at a point in our growth cycle that we thought about having an Advisory Board and after contacting Kylie from Director Institute she supported us through that process. After identifying the areas of expertise that we required for our Advisory Board, we couldn’t be happier with the quality of candidates that were provided.
Kylie Hammond CEO of Director Institute is an excellent mentor, one who can guide you through the muddy waters that lead to your first Directorship. The Director Institute is an organisation that can introduce you to the right people and organisations. Kylie is a skilled match-maker for Boards and Directors.
