If your applications for Director (Exec) or Non-Executive Director (NXD/NED) roles have ever failed to attract a promotion or executive recruiters, then MyFirstDirectorship membership might be for you. Started as a physical group, our members (senior managers, professionals and MBAs) practice desired leadership competencies by attending scheduled committee meetings. And it is through these meetings, together with hosted events held by business partners and sponsors, that members have the unique opportunity to develop demonstrable Director-level track records.
At committee meetings you’d practice core executive behaviours, strengthen commercial awareness, think strategically and improve your ability to think independently. Members say that, among other things, meetings build their confidence to speak up, influence, assess business situations, be diplomatic, provide effective feedback and communicate with clarity and brevity.

Before I wasn’t sure how to build credibility, now I have a clear plan. – Sarah
