Your “Go-to-Market” Board Documents in the JumpStart Program

Your Board Bio, Resume, LinkedIn Profile, and Pitch are your sales tools.

You are the product and your personal Go-to-Market strategy Value Propmust clearly inform prospective buyers of your value!

It is recommended by most experts that you have both a specific board-focused 1-page Bio and a 2-page Resume.

Board documents get scanned quickly (usually within two minutes) by a board influencer, recruiter, registry manager, VC or PE partner, CEO, or nominating committee.  The most important rule is to make it easy to see the value that you can bring as a board member.  Starting a board search plan without a well-thought-out Board Bio and CV is ill-advised.  Candidates must clearly focus on what is relevant to a board of directors.

Your experiences should be linked to building a story matching your background with the needs of the role.  Don’t expect anyone but you to draw the lines between your accomplishments and their needs, lines that demonstrate your fit and relevancy.

Our Board Branding Jump Start Package Process:

Consulting calls with Nancy Sheppard, Women2Boards CEO, or our Executive Writers, to develop, draft and refine your Board Bio, Board Resume, LinkedIn Profile, and a sample Board Pitch.

Our first step in our process is to have you complete a questionnaire and return it to us prior to our first call. We need to have significant information about your key leadership accomplishments, with metrics of your success, past jobs, titles, focus, board interaction (corporate, advisory, nonprofit), honors, thought-leadership acknowledgments (quotes, articles, speeches), awards, and education to begin our drafting of your Board Resume.  We will also assist you in targeting the types of boards that will find you the most valuable.

We provide an initial draft to you and you provide comments and edits on each document.  We will provide up to two additional rounds of edits and reviews.  We provide you with final documents in WORD so that you can tweak them for specific boards or updates.

Based on our typical schedule, the process can usually be completed in 45-60 days depending on our mutual schedules.
