I attended the Welcome to the Board Masterclass in Melbourne – a regular event run by the Director Institute. Without any reservations, it was one of the most pleasant and inspiring experiences in my life. The Masterclass brought together the like-minded captains of the industry, novice directors and aspiring board candidates. Skilfully crafted, the event delivered invaluable insights into boards’ lives, tested advice on a board career, portfolio diversification, a number of practical exercises aimed at development of the personal brand and much more. The friendly collaborative and supportive atmosphere of the Masterclass worth special mentioning. It made the networking at the event enjoyable as much as productive. Networking at the Masterclass yields REAL LEADS worth pursuing and connections that one wants to follow up. Premium membership at the Directors Institute allows to attend the Masterclass for free; and it is on top of other benefits offered to the members. In my view, the Masterclass is a MUST-ATTEND event for anybody seriously considering a board career in Australia.
Direct Institute Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass was such a great investment. Within the first 30 minutes, I had my mind opened to a vast array of possibilities. By lunchtime, I was completely reassessing my value proposition as a professional, as a corporate advisor, and as a director. By the end of the day, I had a plan. Partially, this was due to the exceptional standard of both the content and the materials. Partially, it was due to the energy and insights that the delegates brought from a broad range of sectors and levels of experience. Mainly though, it was the enormous experience and generosity of Kylie Hammond and Sonia McDonald. I’m very much looking forward to the next stage of my Director Institute journey.
I attended the ‘Welcome to the Boardroom’ Masterclass held in Melbourne and found the entire day inspiring, informative and engaging. With her extensive network and knowledge of the Boardroom, Kylie assembled an amazing group of people to the day. Present were experienced senior boardroom executives, senior business partners looking for potential board members and those like myself who wish to renew and reinvigorate their board standing and actively seek further board positions. Kylie is extremely generous in sharing her wisdom and professional experiences. During the day, you are taken through a range of thought provoking topics. Extremely value is the process you are guided through which allows you to undercover your core value proposition from a Board perspective. I would highly recommend this Masterclass to anyone who is interested in seeking (even for the first time) Non-Executive Board positions, those wishing to ramp up their existing positions or to firms seeking potential new board members. Congratulations Kylie to you and your team on a great day and I look forward to continuing working with you to successfully achieve my Board goals.
I recently attended Director Institute Next Generation Director “Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass”. The day was both inspirational and educational. Kylie Hammond and her team generously imparted strategies to build a professional board portfolio based on her vast knowledge and experience. I would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone who is serious about their board career.
I attended the Director Institute Next Generation Directors Masterclass hosted by Kylie Hammond and Sonia McDonald. I highly recommend this event to anyone who is serious about developing a diversified portfolio of board appointments. Together Kylie and Sonia share their secrets: for fast tracking the development of a board career; defining and articulating your value proposition as a board director; marketing yourself; and securing commercial board appointments. Most importantly Kylie backs members of the Director Institute with mentoring and support to access the hidden job market and realise their board dreams. Thank you Kylie for the opportunity to participate. I learnt a great deal, met some great people and thoroughly enjoyed your Masterclass.
I recently attended a Director’s Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass run by the Director Institute. Kylie and her team ran a first-class program, very professional and for me an exceptionally enjoyable and eye opening day. To say I’ve learned a lot about my personal brand and networking is an understatement. I would recommend any senior executive that is considering a Board career to contact Director Institute Next Generation Directors.
