Professional Development Programs
Give your board and career aspirations a kick-start with our powerful professional development program.
Pathways to directorship
Our workshops provide practical strategies for women seeking senior and board roles in their career. We recommend over time you attend the full series.
The workshops are supported by resources from our influential director and executive network and a program of strategic networking events. They are held in major capital cities in Australia.

- Getting Serious: Brand YOU
Maximising who you are and what and who you know.
- Getting there: WOB Masterclass

- Boards on your horizon
Full day workshop.
- Board CV intensive workshop
Directorships are highly competitive with the number of candidates exceeding Board vacancies. Getting your Board CV right is difficult and time-consuming, requiring considerable thought and focus. In fact, the more your Board CV looks like a traditional resume for a corporate role, the more you signal you are not ready for the boardroom.
We also deliver professional development workshops for organisations in our corporate subscription packages.
