You learn more from each other than me...

It was not long after I started my own practice and the first alumni emerged from the Take on Board: KickStarter and Take on Board: Accelerator group programs that I realised that people’s success in the boardroom had only a little to do with me.

You learn more from each other than me.

Learning this changed the way I run my programs and services – as well as my own plans for the future. I put a lot of time and effort into bringing this community of like-minds together, where they not only share information and ideas, but also champion each other’s plans and achievements.

Where you can connect with this growing community:

I’m not a huge fan of Facebook, but at the moment it’s the best platform option for this community. Around 1,000 women have signed up to this group. The share board of director listings. The offer board CV and application advice. It’s a good place to find out what an organisation and its board are like.

It’s also a very friendly and social space. People tend to talk about lot more than boards. They swap general life tips. It’s a lot of fun. A pop in every day.

I started this in mid-2021 as a potential alternative to Facebook. Most of us spend a fair bit of time on LinkedIn already. My business manager and I make sure that Take on Board information appears here as well as Facebook.

Take on Board is also on Twitter, if that’s your thing.

Where to next for this growing community of women?

So, I am exploring other platform options for this community of women to meet, network, share their news, discuss a problem, ask for advice and offer support. 

Fingers crossed it’ll happen by 2023…

Her commitment, generosity, enthusiasm, expertise and charisma has convened a community of amazing women at all stages of their board journeys to this purpose, and I am delighted to be a part of that community.
