Hong Kong: Realising your Board Potential


Getting Started: Realising your Board Potential

New for 2015! This event now includes a one hour post-workshop webinar.

Women on Boards Australia and UK are coming to Hong Kong for a week at the request of our international clients.

Over the week the Women on Boards Team will be running a number of Getting Started: Realising your Board Potential workshops including this workshop at Thomson Reuters offices for anyone wishing to attend who wants to explore or expand their Non-Executive/Trustee positions either in Hong Kong or Globally. The workshops are designed for women at every level or their career.
The workshop is designed to help you with strategies for board and career development. Learn about what it takes to be a director and strategies for including board work in your career. 
Many of us are convinced that we have the skills and wisdom to contribute to the boardroom, but don't know enough about the role or the board recruitment process to position ourselves to get there. Others are intrigued by the possibility of having a real impact on society through directorship, but need convincing that their experience is transferable to the boardroom, along with some insights into how to access the roles. If either of these sounds like you, you will enjoy this workshop and leave with a renewed commitment to finding a board role. 
The workshop content has been developed over many years working to help hundreds of women take action to address their career challenges and aspirations. 
The topics covered include:
  • Managing your career and how to include a NED or trustee position
  • About directorship; the role, duties and legal responsibilities of directors
  • Directorship opportunities; market intelligence on board roles and how to apply
  • Doing yourself justice when applying for board roles.

The workshop is practical, strategic and interactive. Participants are engaged and supported by the Women on Boards team and encouraged to make use of the wider WOB "network of influence". Most importantly, participants become part of a unique network of support and influence for women interested in building a non-executive career strategy, wherever they are on that journey.

Suited to people:
  • Looking at long-term career options
  • Thinking about or already on a board
  • Seeking strategic and practical advice
  • Looking for an influential support network
