This event provides an opportunity for women leaders to connect with executive search professionals and gain insight into what non-executive recruiters are looking for in a board candidate.

Date: 26 September 2023

Location: 9am-10am BST / Zoom

What are non-executive recruiters looking for in a board candidate? What do they want to know about you? And how does your ‘pitch’ really come across?

This hour-long session is a chance to connect informally with leading headhunters working to source quality, diverse candidates for listed boards and other large, complex organisations (we expect you will meet 2 headhunters at the session). You will gain a brief insight into their work and receive supportive feedback on your ‘elevator pitch’. 

After an introduction, you will then meet the headhunters in a small group via Zoom’s breakout rooms functionality. You will have the chance to practise introducing yourself succinctly (1 minute maximum, please!) as a prospective or actual board member and receive feedback and advice where applicable.
