How to Network Yourself Into a Corporate Board Seat

“I don’t have a network.”
“I’m an introvert.”
“I’m not good at networking.”
“I don’t like to ask for help.”

Sound familiar? Women in the Boardroom CEO & Founder Sheila Ronning is a networking expert and is no stranger to hearing the concerns of women trying to navigate their network with the intention of becoming a corporate board member. She hears comments like these ALL the time and is ALWAYS able to help!

At Women in the Boardroom, we know that defining your value add for board service and clearly articulating it to your network is your best chance for getting a seat at the table. But we also know this can consume a lot of time and leave you frustrated – signs you are not working your network correctly.

The good news is we have created a proven networking process that works and our success rate at helping our members secure board seats is proof. During this webinar, some of the items Sheila will cover include:

  • Who are the key people in your network to reach out to
  • How to contact your network
  • What to say and what NOT to say
  • How to maintain those relationships
