What is this course?
Hosted by co-founder and CEO of Future Directors, Paul Smith, this unique DIY online course will help you decide if a non-executive board position is something you want and, if so, how can you start and accelerate the process with a clear framework for success.
How long does it take?
It’s really up to you! You can watch all the video tutorials in a day and take action immediately. Or, you could take a few weeks or even a year. However, we recommend you aim for 4-6 weeks to introduce yourself to the process of kickstarting a board career.
Who is it for?
This course is for anyone curious about the boardroom and acts as a way for you to learn our unique yet proven CONNECT Method.
If you are not ready to invest in our full Make Me a Board Director program and join our Alumni, then the online course is the best option.
