EWOB Masterclass – Crafting a Board CV: a Step by Step Guide

The objective of this online Masterclass is to equip aspiring and incumbent Non Executive Directors with the tools and knowledge to write a compelling CV that stands out from the competition. The session will go beyond the usual hints and tips, and drill down into some of the science behind CV writing, factoring in decision-maker psychology, recruitment best practices, and marketing techniques known to turbo-charge the effectiveness of a Board CV.

In this fast-paced and engaging online workshop, we will be covering the following:

✅ How a NED CV is structurally different to a CV for executive positions
✅ How to use marketing techniques in your NED CV to get more traction
✅ How an aspiring NED CV is different to an incumbent NED CV
✅ How to avoid ‘John Harvey-Jones’ syndrome and communicate your value proposition
✅ How to use powerful and evidence-based case studies
✅ Why you need more than one type of CV when targeting NED roles
✅ How to reduce the time it takes to tailor your CV from hours to mins
✅ How to create a master and modular CV that can be perfectly tailored or every position
✅ How to use advanced techniques to tailor your CV to the needs of the organisation

The session is suitable for aspiring and incumbent NEDs and portfolio career professionals. Throughout the workshop, participants will engage in interactive activities designed to help them apply the concepts and strategies learned. You will also have the opportunity to receive feedback and guidance from our team to refine your CV.

By the end of the workshop, you will have a clear understanding of what it takes to write a winning CV for a Board position and the confidence and skills to apply these concepts to your own job search.

After the session, each of you can sign up for individual feedback in a 15-minute follow-up session.
