Take on Board: KickStarter

A practical three-day program

KickStarter is a group program for women who are thinking of taking on a board directorship position and don’t know where to start.

Explore what makes a good board great in a safe, motivating, encouraging and fun environment. It’s like being part of a sports team preparing for an event – with an experienced coach at your side along with the rest of the team to cheer you on.

This practical program is held over three Saturdays each year.

The next KickStarter: starts Saturday 30 July 2022

Helga's Kickstarter program is brilliant – very well designed and full of practical information. Helga is so generous with her time and expertise. Not only that, Helga has created a community of talented, accomplished women that is a goldmine of support and contacts. Well worth it!
