Testimonials

Testimonials

“It gave me the resources and guidance to create my board resume and the knowledge to say confidently that this is something I want to do. I now better understand the risk, duties and priorities of board membership in small/medium sized private corporations and FP500 companies”

“I was amazed at the experience and credentials of my fellow participants. As this was an Introductory course, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the sophistication and the knowledge of the participants soon became evident. I learned a lot just by listening to their stories and experiences. This course helped me get past my pre-conceived notions that Board positions are primarily based on "who you know," not "what you know" --although I'm sure that's still a factor on many Boards! Courses like the Get on Board Program which emphasize Board education are a great step towards getting Boards comprised of qualified diverse individuals outside the old boys club.”
