Today on the Take on Board podcast, I bring you 20 tips to take on board in 2020.

In doing so, I acknowledge my good friend and Take on Board teammate Jackie Cooper who helped me bring this together. There’s no way I would have been able to pull out all the key themes and my favourite bits as it would be a bit like having to choose your favourite child. I love all of it! So Jackie was key in pulling this together.

So let’s go back to the start. The first Take on Board episode aired Wednesday 2 July 2019 with the fabulous Sandra Loader. Over six months 23 very different women passed on what they’d learnt about getting on a board and being an effective board member.

There were some standout themes across all 26 episodes.

There’s a loose order to this list: starting with getting on board, to good things to do when on a board.

And #1 is without a doubt the most important theme – relationships.

This episode is based on a Take on Board blog post, also called 20 tips to take on board in 2020.
