How to Join a Corporate (and Nonprofit) Board

Join host Cynthia Remec, Executive Director of BoardAssist, as she sits down with leading corporate board search consultants Julie Daum, Suzanne Burns, and Sarah Burley Reid from the Spencer Stuart Board Practice team to discuss corporate and nonprofit board service.  

How to get noticed for corporate board service?  What are top corporate board search consultants looking for in board candidates?  Where are they looking?  What can you do to enhance your chances of being on the radar of the best board headhunters?  Does serving on a nonprofit board help you get on a corporate board?  How does corporate board service differ from nonprofit board service?  What are the “hot” skill sets that corporate boards are particularly focused on adding right now?  And what should you be thinking about before you accept a board offer?  These questions and more will be addressed.

BoardAssist is the country’s leading personalized nonprofit board matching service having brought over $135 million dollars into the nonprofit community over the last 21 years.  Spencer Stuart is the country’s leading executive search firm focused in the corporate board search space, responsible for over half of the corporate board searches conducted annually in the US.  Julie Daum leads the North American Board Practice group where she works with senior Spencer Stuart professionals Suzanne Burns and Sarah Burley Reid.
