This is a London based community for senior managers, MBAs and driven professionals who aspire to become Directors or NXDs.
If your applications for Director or Non-Executive roles have ever failed to land a promotion or attract recruiters, then this group is relevant to you. At our meetups you'd practice desired leadership competencies like commercial awareness and strategic thinking. And improve your ability to think independently, speak up, lead, assess situations, be diplomatic, provide effective feedback, communicate with clarity and so much more.
These meetups utilise real business issues encountered by high growth potential businesses so attendees have a real sense of what it means to lead at board level. Events follow the format of board meetings and allow committee members (attendees) to discuss and debate strategic issues of these businesses. Each event lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes and includes a 15 minute mid-session break for networking.
There are at least 52 meetings like these each year. Some of them advertised on MeetUp.com and others not. The more meetings you participate at, the stronger your competency levels become. Open to everyone, the only catch is that there are only 10 places per meeting. To encourage diversity, we promote events to different audiences, not just here on Meetup.com. And because our discussion points are time sensitive, strategic and applies to existing high growth potential businesses it is difficult for others to replicate this offer.
It's a new initiative but we're growing quickly in member numbers due to the high demand for opportunities into Director roles. If you are serious about becoming a Director or Non-Executive within the next 12 months, I urge you to take action and be among the first from this channel to attend.
