The decision to become a member of a public board of directors “is a much bigger decision than people realize,” advises Executive Coach Margaret Chan. “It involves a very different skill set and mindset than being a senior executive.”

In an exclusive webinar for Stanford GSB alumni, Chan will share how you can assess if you’re ready to make the leap to a public board, as well as:

  • The risks and responsibilities of board membership in an era of increased board accountability
  • The skills and mindset that will enable you to be a successful board member
  • How to package yourself as a board candidate, including your board bio and board interviews
  • How to surface opportunities through your network and executive search firms
  • What new state legislation means for women and other diverse candidates

Who Should Attend?
People who are considering public board service as a next career step, or who would like to build a foundation to serve on a board later in their career.
