I hope many of you will join us for Chat with Matt when I interview Mike Lorelli. Mike and I will be discussing the things you need to do to land a board seat.

This conversation on Landing Board Seats will help make you marketable as a serious Board of Director candidate. First- the good news: only 22% of Outside Directors are ‘sitting CEO’s.’ So, this is a targeted place for all senior members of The FENG. But what do you do to get the calls?

This webinar will take you through:

- Understanding your reasons for seeking Board work

- The right path to muscle-build your Board credentials

- Creating your messaging:
 * Your Board Bio (different than your standard Bio)
 * Your Board resume (different than your resume)
 * Your LinkedIn profile. It’s not just about your outbound marketing. You want to be “found” as recruiters find candidates on LinkedIn
 * Crafting your value proposition
 * Your elevator speech

- Going to market

Your desired approach is a carefully developed marketing plan to enhance your attractiveness as an Outside Director candidate, and build your confidence to deliver a knock-out punch.
