Entering the boardroom and during your first formative years as a board member can be quite overwhelming and confusing. During times like these it helps to have a coach or mentor guiding and supporting you through the wonderful – and sometimes weird – world of being on a board. Coaching and mentoring helps build your confidence so you can step boldly into the boardroom, be a high performing board member, and build a successful board career.
Lisa Cook, founder and managing director of Get on Board Australia, certainly knows what it’s like to successfully launch a board career and survive and thrive in the boardroom. Over nearly a decade in boardrooms in New South Wales and South Australia Lisa has experience spanning sports clubs, to not-for-profits, to charities, to private family businesses.
Everyone’s board goals and journey are unique and personal. That’s why Lisa delivers coaching and mentoring based purely on your needs. Whether it’s a 12-month coaching program in combination with Boardroom Bootcamp; or just a few sessions to help you step confidently into the board role of your dreams, Lisa will be able to provide something just for you.
Whichever way you work with Lisa, you will receive the following:
· A minimum package of 3 sessions (to ongoing relationship)
· 60-90 minute sessions (video conferencing / telephone / face-to-face)

Until I found Lisa I wasn’t sure where to begin with my board career. I knew I needed a board CV, and I knew I needed help because I hadn’t crafted a resume in years, and the only one I had was for my professional career. Working with Lisa was so easy - she was responsive and knowledgeable, and it was obvious that she cared deeply about my board goals and setting myself up for board success. Lisa made a significant difference in my confidence and ability to help myself in the future as I pursue my board goals. I received a high level of value for my investment, and I can strongly recommend engaging Lisa if you’re ready to invest more seriously into your board career.
