The Welcome to the Boardroom session was extremely worthwhile. It gave me the clarity and information I needed to move forward in this direction. Kylie and her team shared a lot of knowledge and insights and the interactive exercises highlighted the importance of a well thought out value proposition. I’d recommend it for anyone seeking to build a broader work/life portfolio and move into Director and advisory roles. Thanks to Kylie and the team.
I can whole heartily recommend Kylie and the Director Institute. Kylie supported my application to a successful conclusion on an Advisory Board and the outlay was a great investment in my future. The access to the resources, the training and networking along with coaching and resume services were second to none. Happy to take enquires if you want a reference on the process or financial commitment.
Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass was a great practical workshop on leadership, networking and brand portfolio development. A room full of diverse and like-minded individuals with content tailored towards embarking on a board and portfolio career. Highly recommended.
Entering a new phase of your career, when you have worked for many years in position in which you are extremely confident, is an unnerving and unfamiliar sensation. The sudden uncertainty, reminiscent of your earlier days when you were first starting out, the self-doubt, that you haven’t felt for some time, creeps in. This is the feeling of moving a career from a stable, full time role, to a less certain advisory, consulting, board capacity.
But like all things in life, uncertainty can be countered by speaking to people who have been there before, who know the pitfalls and the errors you would inevitably make if left to your own devices. Director Institute is an organisation I have used as a client on several occasions, with a 100% success rate. Being on the other side of the table, looking to develop my own board career, I decided to give the Boardroom Masterclass a go. And it didn’t disappoint. It was intensive day in which I met some amazing people, heard some inspiring stories and was led on a journey of self-discovery. I took from it a handful of take-outs that I believe will shape my future career, a pocketful of business cards of like-minded people and a lot of self-confidence that I was unexpectedly lacking before. All rounded off by great food, quality wine and a free hat.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass conducted by Kylie Hammond of the Director Institute. I met a room full of smart, savvy executives and came away with a variety of ideas. Well run and extremely informative – Kylie is a wealth of knowledge and clearly the best in the business.
Thanks to the team at Director Institute.
Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass is an extremely worthwhile session and I would highly recommend it. If you are looking to move into the world of Boardrooms it is a thought provoking and idea filled session.
Even if you are not looking to move into this area, I found the session to be so beneficial from the point of the introspective question ‘Who am I’?
Exploring my values and generally having time to think about myself,my values and my motivation, away from the hustle and bustle of my day job.
Thank you for a day that filled my head with ideas and gave me a renewed sense of focus for the future.
The Boardroom Masterclass conducted by Kylie is a highly valuable day. It is current, relevant, built with years of experience behind it. Kylie and her team shared valuable knowledge combined with many networking opportunities. It is essential learning for any person seeking Board roles.
I’ve spent the day at the Director Institute Boardroom Masterclass, learning from Kylie and her team about diversifying our career portfolio, serving on the right Boards, and adding value to companies and individuals in a variety of ways. I’ve met both accomplished and interesting people today, learned a lot and had fun in the process. Kylie is both knowledgeable and personally accomplished, which makes her advice so much more valuable.
I met Kylie some years ago and have watched her develop a business very quickly to become the benchmark for how Boards will be composed in the future. She has great insights, is an amazing networker and is passionate about her craft. A true inspiration. It is with pleasure that I recommend Kylie.
