Still wondering “What’s in it for me?” Here is an overview of the value you will receive beyond the boardroom from completing the Boardroom Bootcamp course.
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR
Boardroom Bootcamp is a co-ed course designed specifically for new and aspiring company directors and board members from all professional backgrounds and any type of board (i.e. for-profit, not-for-profit, family business, etc.).
If you are looking to join a board in the near future or have been on a board for a number of years and looking to formalise your director knowledge, this course will help you understand your role, duties, and responsibilities as a company director, as well as how you can be a high-performing board member and set yourself up for future board success.
Although there are no restrictions to who can enrol in Boardroom Bootcamp, you only get out what you put in. You need to be committed to working through the course work, completing the learning activities, and initiating and engaging in discussions on the course forum. Asking questions relating to your personal board journey helps bring the theory to life and gives you high personal value from participating in Boardroom Bootcamp. A good idea is to treat it like you would any face-to-face learning situation.
If you have any further questions, please refer to our course frequently asked questions (FAQs) or send us a message using the enquiry form below.
