Military Transitions Workshop 11 September 2012

Speakers will include:

  • Major General James Short (late 9th/12th Royal Lancers), Managing Partner AugMentor
  • Keith Probert (late Royal Tank Regiment), Managing Director at Viimi Ltd
  • Captain Christopher Lait (late REME), Managing Director at Drake Academy Ltd
  • Jean Church & Kate Mutter–Bowen, the K.U.D.O.S programme
  • Sarah Owen, the Referral Institute - Master Franchisee United Kingdom
  • David Doughty & Tony Stubbs, Executive Transitions

Take your first steps to becoming a Non-Executive Director with two events in May from Executive Transitions

Non-Executive Director Careers Event

Half-Day course & Evening Careers Fair, Tuesday 22 May 2012, 2:00pm to 7:30pm, Bristol Financial Solutions Centre, 3rd Floor, 1 Georges Square Bath Street, Bristol BS1 6BP

With the increasing realisation that Non-Executive Directors are essential for effective governance and organisational success there is a rapidly growing demand for individuals with the right skill-set across all sectors. This is matched, however, by a large pool of applicants for each position, making it a very competitive marketplace.

To address this situation, Executive Transitions have created a unique series of events focused on providing prospective NEDs with the information, tools and techniques necessary to embark on a successful NED career and the opportunity to meet organisations looking to make immediate NED appointments.

This half-day course runs in conjunction with the 1-day How to become an effective Non-Executive Director Course (see below), but can also be accessed separately by people wishing to gain new tools in NED career development and marketing.  The course gives an in-depth insight into content marketing, social marketing and media, application processes, job creation, CV building and job sources to help you develop a strategy that gives you a sustainable route to market.

Importantly, we will also have a number of organisations looking for NEDs with whom you can network at the NED Careers Fair which immediately follows the course.

This course will help you to:

  • Build your reputation through on and offline content
  • Network more effectively
  • Develop your CV and experiences to make you more attractive as a candidate
  • Assess more effectively the type of NED positions available
  • Understand how to convert contacts into NED roles
  • Develop an overall approach to the NED market
