Becoming a Non-Executive Director
< 5% Chance
If you are looking for board positions there is one vital statistic you need to know. Less than 5% of people just hoping for Board positions will get one. You need to take direct action.
There is an abundance of highly talented C level managers and directors in Australia and very few board positions. Add to that Australia being one of the most desirable destinations for migration and suddenly you are competing in a global talent pool.
If you plan to casually seek Board positions then you are unlikely to be successful. You need to strategically target the boards and positions to which you are suited and have a long term plan for building your profile and credentials to ensure you are shortlisted when positions become available. Having a good strategic plan still doesn’t guarantee success but it will give you a fighting chance.
