Writing your first board resume can be an overwhelming task. It is quite different from your professional resume and requires you to talk about your personal achievements in a new way that can feel awkward and uncomfortable.
To highlight your best features, it’s recommended to get help from a trusted person to prepare your board resume. You need someone who gets to know you, unearths your professional achievements and your strengths, articulates the value you offer to boards in a way that resonates with them, and packages it all into a professional board resume ready for you to utilise and adapt as you seek board opportunities.
Lisa Cook, founder and managing director of Get on Board Australia, is ready to help guide you through this process and empower you to feel confident about what you offer the boards you want to join.
Knowing that everyone is in a different place in relation to their professional career and board journey, Lisa gives you a highly-customised board resume preparation service. This could include anything from reviewing and updating your existing resume, to interviewing you and writing your board resume and cover letter from scratch.
If you’re ready to launch your board career on the right foot – or take it further – get in touch with Lisa for a ‘no strings attached’ conversation about how she can personally help you.
Whichever option you choose, Lisa also includes support for updating your LinkedIn profile to reflect your board resume and board ambitions.
Who it’s For
Lisa works predominantly with new and aspiring board members and company directors: those who are looking to join a board in the near future, or those who are ready to start moving towards paid board positions after time as a volunteer director.
