The Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass was such a great investment. Within the first 30 minutes, I had my mind opened to a vast array of possibilities. By lunchtime, I was completely reassessing my value proposition as a professional, as a corporate advisor, and as a director. By the end of the day, I had a plan. Partially, this was due to the exceptional standard of both the content and the materials. Partially, it was due to the energy and insights that the delegates brought from a broad range of sectors and levels of experience. Mainly though, it was the enormous experience and generosity of Kylie Hammond and Sonia McDonald. I’m very much looking forward to the next stage of my Directors Institute journey.
The Welcome to the Boardroom session was extremely worthwhile. It gave me the clarity and information I needed to move forward in this direction. Kylie and her team shared a lot of knowledge and insights and the interactive exercises highlighted the importance of a well thought out value proposition. I’d recommend it for anyone seeking to build a broader work life portfolio and move into Director and advisory roles. Thanks to Kylie Hammond and the team at Director Institute Next Generation Directors.
I can whole heartily recommend Kylie and Director Institute Next Generation Directors. Kylie supported my application to a successful conclusion on an Advisory Board and the outlay was a great investment in my future. The access to the resources, the training and networking along with coaching and resume services were second to none. Happy to take inquires if you want a reference on the process or financial commitment.
I recently attended “Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass”. The day was both inspirational and educational. Kylie generously imparted strategies to build a professional board portfolio based on her vast knowledge and experience. I would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone who is serious about their board career. Thank you Director Institute Next Generation Directors.
I’ve spent the day at the Director Institute Next Generation Director Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass, learning from Kylie and her team about diversifying our career portfolio, serving on the right Boards, and adding value to companies and individuals in a variety of ways. I’ve met both accomplished and interesting people today, learned a lot and had fun in the process. Kylie is both knowledgeable and personally accomplished, which makes her advice so much more valuable.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass conducted by Kylie Hammond of the Director Institute Next Generation Directors. I met a room full of smart, savvy executives and came away with a variety of ideas. Well run and extremely informative – Kylie is a wealth of knowledge and clearly the best in the business. Thanks to the team at Director Institute.
Director Institute is an organisation I have used as a client on several occasions, with a 100% success rate. Being on the other side of the table, looking to develop my own board career, I decided to give the Boardroom Masterclass a go. And it didn’t disappoint. It was intensive day in which I met some amazing people, heard some inspiring stories and was led on a journey of self-discovery. I took from it a handful of take-outs that I believe will shape my future career, a pocketful of business cards of like-minded people and a lot of self-confidence that I was unexpectedly lacking before. All rounded off by great food, quality wine and a free hat.
Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass is an extremely worthwhile session and I would highly recommend it. If you are looking to move into the world of Boardrooms it is a thought provoking and idea filled session. Even if you are not looking to move into this area, I found the session to be so beneficial from the point of the introspective question ‘Who am I’? Exploring my values and generally having time to think about myself, my values and my motivation, away from the hustle and bustle of my day job. Thank you for a day that filled my head with ideas and gave me a renewed sense of focus for the future.
The Boardroom Masterclass conducted by Kylie is a highly valuable day. It is current, relevant, built with years of experience behind it. Kylie and her team shared valuable knowledge combined with many networking opportunities. It is essential learning for any person seeking Board roles.
Kylie ‘came to me’ at a pivotal time in my career and instantly took a real interest in me, my unique value proposition and my aspirations for a broadened broad portfolio. In her very practical and matter-of-fact way, she has inspired me and has delighted many others (who share her as a connection). I would have no hesitation in recommending Director Institute to any potential or existing member.
I met Kylie some years ago and have watched her develop a business very quickly to become the benchmark for how Boards will be composed in the future. She has great insights, is an amazing networker and is passionate about her craft. A true inspiration. It is with pleasure that I recommend Kylie and her team.
Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass was a great practical workshop on leadership, networking and brand portfolio development. A room full of diverse and like-minded individuals with content tailored towards embarking on a board and portfolio career. Highly recommended.
Yesterday I attended the Director Institute Next Generation Directors Masterclass hosted by Kylie Hammond and Sonia McDonald. I highly recommend this event to anyone who is serious about developing a diversified portfolio of board appointments. Together Kylie and Sonia share their secrets: for fast tracking the development of a board career; defining and articulating your value proposition as a board director; marketing yourself; and securing commercial board appointments. Most importantly Kylie backs members of the Directors Institute with mentoring and support to access the hidden job market and realise their board dreams. Thank you Kylie for the opportunity to participate. I learnt a great deal, met some great people and thoroughly enjoyed your Masterclass.
Spent a very interesting and insightful day at the Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass with Kylie Hammond and the team at Director Institute Next Generation Directors. Met some great people and learned a lot, thanks to Director Institute team for a great day.
I have started working with Director Institute to assist me with my company strategy and board positions. Kylie’s program and executive coaching is one of the best in Australia. She stops at nothing to make sure you are successful with great networks, advice and executive coaching and mentoring. Her Platinum Program was holistic, insightful, practical and high impactful with a number of leading experts as guest speakers. This is a MUST attend program. I feel truly ready for Board positions and the direction and coaching has made a significant difference already to the success and growth of my business.
I have worked with Kylie for nearly 2 years. I have very much valued her expertise and insights in pursuing Non-Executive Director roles especially ensuring that I addressed key issues in the search process. Director Institute Next Generation Directors has assisted me to secure a number of Board Director roles and I am happy to recommend Kylie Hammond and her team.
Kylie has been my mentor and coach during my transition from Executive Management to Board Member. Director Institute Next Generation Directors provides exclusive board and talent management programs and board search opportunities that are confidential and available only to members.
I had the pleasure of attending the Platinum Intensive at the Director Institute, with Kylie and the Team at the Director Institute. The program was thought provoking, energizing and provided practical insight into developing a Board portfolio. Thank you Kylie and the DI Team for a great program.
Engaging the right people to support and incubate a start up business is an incredibly difficult and sensitive task that requires significant personal investment in order to succeed. Director Institutes’ ability to grasp and satisfy our requirements and provide board director and investor introductions in a competent and timely manner was exactly what we needed.
I recently attended a Director’s Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass run by the Director Institute Next Generation Directors. Kylie and her team ran a first class program, very professional and for me an exceptionally enjoyable and eye opening day. To say I’ve learned a lot about my personal brand and networking is an understatement. I would recommend any senior executive that is considering a Board career to contact Kylie or the Institute.
Attended the Welcome to the Boardroom Masterclass yesterday, found it very worthwhile. Practical and pragmatic advice and direction with regard to starting a board member portfolio, thought provoking exercises and good networking opportunity. Good value and worth the investment.
I attended the DI event not knowing what to expect as I have attended many with mixed results. Kylie and her team were brilliant. They were professional, well organised, prepared and most importantly shared great content and leanings around how to get on to company boards and so make a difference for the better. I can highly recommend this to anyone that would be contemplating board positions.
I found the Director Institute’s Boardroom Masterclass very helpful. It gave me tips on securing board roles and how to do it strategically. Also, it made me think about my value proposition and leadership qualities that I bring to serve on boards. Really value for money!!
I recently attended the Welcome to the Boardroom event run by Kylie and the Directors Institute. The course was extremely well run from the venue, course material and presenters. The course also provided really good insights on how Boards work and how to brand yourself into becoming a future Board Director. With the high caliber of attendees at the event the networking opportunities were invaluable.
I attended the ‘Welcome to the Boardroom’ Masterclass held in Melbourne and found the entire day inspiring, informative and engaging. With her extensive network and knowledge of the Boardroom, Kylie assembled an amazing group of people to the day. Present were experienced senior boardroom executives, senior business partners looking for potential board members and those like myself who wish to renew and reinvigorate their board standing and actively seek further board positions. Kylie is extremely generous in sharing her wisdom and professional experiences. During the day, you are taken through a range of thought provoking topics. Extremely value is the process you are guided through which allows you to undercover your core value proposition from a Board perspective. I would highly recommend this Masterclass to anyone who is interested in seeking (even for the first time) Non-Executive Board positions, those wishing to ramp up their existing positions or to firms seeking potential new board members. Congratulations Kylie to you and your team on a great day and I look forward to continuing working with you to successfully achieve my Board goals.
I recently attended the Director institute ‘Masterclass’ in Melbourne. Having been a non-executive director for some time, I was unsure what to expect from the day. I found it insightful, with extremely relevant course content, great tips and an excellent networking opportunity for both experienced and aspiring Directors. I would highly recommend the course and commend the Directors Institute for making the day such a success.
