 You’re invited to Women Get On Board's Halifax Workshop on Wednesday, October 10th, 2018:

"Board Resume Writing" 

Hosted by: 

About workshop:

This “Board Resume Writing” workshop is developed to provide you with insights on how to showcase your board skills and value proposition. A board resume is an ongoing, dynamic document.

Preparing your board resume also requires creativity on your part to really think about what makes you unique and how you stand out from others. You need to be mindful that it is a very competitive marketplace. There is an over-supply of qualified corporate directors for a limited supply of available corporate board seats. So, you need to engage your creative mind to think on who you are, what you offer and how you’re going to go to market to let others know that you are looking for a board opportunity in a particular industry/sector and how you can add value.

What will be covered in the workshop:
  • Understanding what executive search firms/nomination committees are looking for in board candidates through a board skills matrix
  • Discussing content & design of a board resume 
  • Articulating you board value proposition (break-out groups)


This event is discounted for Women Get On Board (WGOB) members. Please email for your member discount code.  To become a member, please email us at
