I highly recommend anyone considering a future Board role to attend Welcome To The Boardroom Masterclass. Well worth the experience as it has greatly opened my mind and given me some of the key tools needed to launch myself towards a Board  position. Kylie Hammond provided a day long masterclass that was enlightening with vital strategic information. Together they provided a setting for interactive networking between a group of highly qualified experienced individuals who are future and current board room leaders. I an looking forward to developing myself further with their guidance.

Mark Klisch

I recently attended the Director Institute Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass. The day was highly informative and practical. Some of the most valuable aspects of the day were Kylie’s candid and open tips and strategies for developing a successful board career, the practical planning process provided and the excellent network of people in the room.

Lisa Vincent

WOW! What an extraordinary woman and what a fantastic opportunity to meet like minded leaders.
If you are ever fortunate enough to be invited to one of Kylie’s events, be sure to take up the privileged offer.

I attended Kylie’s Platinum Intensive Luxury 2 day retreat. The quality of the content and the quality of the guest speakers are absolutely seconded to none.

If you are genuine about taking your portfolio to the next level Kylie Hammond and the team at the Director Institute is a must!

Jason Shaw

Meeting Kylie & outstanding speakers and Director Institute members was a defining moment in my career.  From the moment I met Kylie, I knew we are working with an inspiring and influential Chairman and Board Director. She shared with us the vision  and gave us the tips on Board career insights. Listening to Kylie and some great speakers on leadership and mind shift was an eye opening to me. Also, worth mentioning to have an opportunity to socialise and network with other existing Board members, entrepreneurs and executives.
It was fantastic and inspirational experience and looking forward to attend more Director Institute seminars and workshops in the future. I would highly recommend to both young / senior executives and entrepreneurs to have a  membership and opportunity to grow and socialise with other members.

I recently attended the Platinum Intensive Luxury Career Retreat by the Director Institute & what an impressive two day event! It was packed with great speakers and a huge amount of information that will really help anyone about to secure a board position.

Kylie really knows her stuff and had a great list of attendees who all connected & I’m sure will ultimately be a great support network for each other.

I want to tell you about a great experience I had and someone who provides the best, honest, pragmatic and useful advise if you want to become a Director – Kylie Hammond at Director Institute . I have just attended a 2 day event – The Platinum Intensive for Next Generation Directors – a fact filled event by Kylie assisted by her expert colleagues about what is required to make it as a Director in today’s GIG economy. She pulls no punches and what you hear and see gives you the tools and directions to make it – BUT – it is up to you – you make it work for you -Kylie shows you the shortcuts, tips and traps. I highly recommend her and her team if you want to become a professional Director. You won’t be disappointed.

Stephan Kasanczuk

Kylie’s generosity and genuine passion in supporting and coaching her members to achieve their personal best and aspire to become Next Generation Directors was contagious and amazing.  I would highly recommend the Platinum Intensive Luxury Career Retreat that I recently attended.

Neehal Clements

I joined Director Institute few month back and attended the Platinum Retreat – what was evident from get go is how much Kylie is passionate about helping her clients build a Board portfolio and progress their career without sugar coating anything. The Intensive Platinum program was an eye opener for me not just from being able to hear from various esteemed presenters but also being able to have the opportunity to network with various leader from various walks of life. This course will help anyone who might not think they have the confidence or the skill to build a Board career.

Arun Satyanarayana

I have attended many workshops, events and presentations and I have to say that the Director Institute’s Platinum Intensive Luxury Career Retreat was on another level. I got a lot out of the event. All the sessions were thought provoking, insightful and very relevant to my pursuit of a board career. The format of the retreat allowed for networking and fostering connections with other attendees. The event was a resounding success and I look forward to the next one.

Raja Pradeep

Director Institute Platinum Intensive Luxury Career Retreat was a real treat!

The content was rich, the location was fabulous and the fellow attendees were impressive executives who I feel privileged to add to my network.

Plus, importantly, Kylie clearly demonstrated that she knows what’s-important-to-know about boards and board memberships.

Carolyn Stevens

Kylie has a wealth of experience to share based on her previous roles and a highly networked individual. I enjoyed the the 2 day Platinum retreat immensely based on all the knowledge and insights that Kylie shared and also the stable of Presenters she had put together. All in the pursuit of arming ourselves with the knowledge and skills to become Board members. I thoroughly recommend the Director Institute as a vehicle in moving forward with your Board Director aspirations.

Tammy Anthonisz

I had a pleasure of attending Director Institute Master Class for the past 2 days and able to watch her in action with her selected team of authorities in this field. Taken away lots of nuggets which would have taken me months if not years to understand, networked with like-minded people and most importantly, moving forward, I walked away with a clear strategy to execute my board career. My observation is that Kylie is a giver and someone who walks the talk. The overall membership is a great value for money!

Logan Nathan

What a knowledgeable person! Have just attended one of Kylie’s workshops for the Director Institute and found Kylie to be not only knowledgeable but very professional, down to earth, pleasantly direct and well organised. I’m looking forward to continued development of my professional skills with her. Definitely would recommend anyone interested in progressing their board career to get in touch with Kylie.

Phillip Walls

I was fortunate enough to recently attend the Director Institute Welcome To The Boardroom Masterclass. As a first-time attendee, I found the session very interesting and rewarding. The content was extremely relevant for professionals contemplating a board role, or indeed a career as a non-executive director. Topics covered included career planning, leadership, networking, personal branding as well as transitioning from executive to board positions.The workshop was an ideal size and encouraged interaction around the room. The flow of the session was great. It also offered an immediate networking opportunity with other attendees which was actively encouraged.Overall, I would recommend for anyone considering a non-executive board career to attend.

Ian Gatenby

I recently joined Director Institute and attended the Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass event. It is very well presented, logically structured and focused on your director career development. Kylie is a very professional presenters and gets the message across efficiently. Refreshingly so, they offer a logical practical approach and avoid long-winded theoretical waffle. It is a worthwhile event, cost-effective and highly recommended.

Cornelis Keyser

As a Director of a boutique management consultancy, investing time in myself is a rare occurrence. However,  I made the the time to spend a day at the Welcome To The Boardroom Masterclass in Brisbane – a really worthwhile investment of time. Many thanks for Kylie for a really insightful and inspirational day – exactly the challenge and opportunity for targeted self reflection that I needed. The day has provided me with some of the building blocks that will hopefully form the basis my board career going forward.

Adrian Morey

It is quite confronting to have to write about one’s self, mentioning all the positive attributes you think a newly introduced person will want to know first off, to warrant an interview for a Board position. Kylie guided us through it with spirited discussion and the vibrancy one would expect from two very successful women. The networking opportunities were outstanding and I have already had emails back today from people wanting to get started on possible business and offering their network for introductions. Kylie spends a lot of time at the big end of town and were happy to share their insights in whats happening where. In this rapidly changing world where its difficult to keep up with everything, all of the time and decipher what is fake news and what is not, its good to spend time with people who are so up to date and so well connected as to have the real inside information.

Wendy Ragg

I joined many leaders for a day of reflection and insights into the ability to lead companies in the future. Kylie guided us through a journey of understanding and preparation to become the next generation of Directors.
Kylie’s ability to highlight the landscape and acknowledge the vision and combine them into complex made simple.
The Next Generation Directors Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass was outstanding, not only for content, but for the level of professionalism and inclusion. If you are a current Director or have considered a career on a Board, you need to make contact with Kylie and her team.

Mark Hancock

Few people have the opportunity to connect with highly entrepreneurial people – I had the pleasure of meeting with Kylie from the Director Institute who shared her insights in becoming a Board Director. Thank you Kylie.

Melissa Corser

I attended the Director Institute Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass and was very impressed with the quality and depth of the course and the very practical, insightful and helpful sessions covering a broad range of very relevant topics. There were many great tips in how to approach being invited to join a Board and how to ‘position’ and ‘brand’ oneself for success. Kylie presented a road map that anyone can follow and course materials that enables one to embark on the journey with confidence and optimism.
There were also excellent networking opportunities. A very worthwhile day that I can highly recommend.

Gary Linton

I attended the Director Institute Masterclass with Kylie. The event was professionally run and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The content was well presented and the audience was engaged throughout the various modules. I highly recommend attending this workshop if you are considering a board engagement.

Brett Luntz

What a fabulous Masterclass facilitated by you Kylie. The content was useful, thought provoking and challenging, the networking opportunities were so valuable, all in all great day of education and opportunity, couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

Cheryl Macnaught

No one in Australia is as passionate about upgrading the diversity, quality, relevance and skills of the boardroom as Kylie, nor as successful at placing a new generation of leaders onto Australian boards. This workshop-style one day class gives a very clear perspective on both the opportunities for prospective board members as well as the challenges involved in self-promotion, personal brand, networking and having clarity on what makes you as a board candidate stand out from the crowd. Highly recommended!

Bob Hayward

Thank you Kylie for your commitment to meeting your clients needs and for the enthusiasm and clarity that you bring to this process.

Morgan Irvine

I invested a day in attending the Brisbane masterclass and was so pleased I did. The sessions were practical and insightful. Kylie’s personal and professional insights have certainly provided me with another lens through which to view the development of my board career as well as equipping me with practical strategies to take the next steps. It was a pleasure meeting the other participants and sharing our stories and expanding our networks. Great day. Highly recommend it. Looking forward to the next opportunity to work with Kylie.
