Take on Board breakfasts

Start the day with governance tips and advice

I launched these breakfasts in 2016, not long after launching the Take on Board: KickStarter group program. 

Originally called ‘Board KickStarter breakfasts, these events were my way of bringing together not only the growing KickStarter alumni, but also other women who’d participated in my coaching programs or those who wanted to know what it was actually like to be on a board of directors.
