The Board Walk sponsored by Webber Wentzel

The Concept

The Boardwalk is an initiative that has been created to nurture the development of aspiring directors who are currently in senior management positions and help them to unlock their future potential. It aims to expose these individuals to existing directors (both executive and non-executive) and partners during an interactive networking breakfast that will encourage meaningful engagement and dialogue.

The Name

While “The Boardwalk” paints the picture of a promenade or walkway, it holds an underlying meaning of the bridge that an aspiring director needs to cross to become Board ready, as well as the journey that needs to be embarked upon.

As they take their first steps down this path of opportunity, these aspiring directors will benefit from those already sitting in the higher echelons of corporate South Africa who will offer their guidance and share their insights and challenges.

The Format

Business and other leaders will be invited to host a table of between eight and ten people. The job of the host will be to impart knowledge, experience and words of wisdom to the table, while directing the conversation.

The topics may be either specific or general as the host and the table pleases.  Attendees will rotate tables twice during the breakfast, while the host remains at their table throughout.

A guest speaker will add to the occasion.

RSVP : colleen@businessengage.co.za.  Numbers are limited and booking is only confirmed once payment has been received.
