We help senior individuals to develop a portfolio. They may be at the classic inflection point of retirement and starting from scratch. They may have one foundational NED role or be established NEDs who are gaining capacity. They may wish to extend their portfolio by geography, entity type or sector. Our client base is equally divided between men and women and we have worked with a number of BAME clients.
Our service offers support through a short series of linked sessions, usually within weeks of each other. They typically vary between a minimum of two and a total of eight. They may focus on the creation of a professional board CV to present the career to optimal advantage in a non-executive context; portfolio strategy to create a balanced and sustainable portfolio and board skillset; digital presence; marketing to launch or relaunch the individual effectively and comprehensively into the market; presentation, including career narrative (filmed sessions are available for clients to gain increased awareness); focused preparation for those wishing to take a Remuneration Chair role; and bespoke analysis to identify appropriate upcoming NED roles in particularly relevant businesses. Support includes personal referrals and introductions. All sessions are typically face to face and last two hours.
We are then available going forward as a sounding board without additional charge or for further sessions, including for clients weighing up a range of non-executive opportunities or shortlisted for a non-executive role and preparing for interview.
