Coined as the board woman's bible , 7 Traits of Highly Successful Women on Boards - views from the top and how to get there is an essential read for women on boards, and those aspiring to get there, not only in the private, but also public, charity and SME sectors. It delves into the hearts and thoughts of 22 highly successful women on corporate boards in the UK, sharing gems of advice, tips, traits and their essential characteristics that will help you chart your journey to the room at the top. If you want to get on a board your journey starts here. Know what you are signing up to and enjoy the ride. Find out, for example: What Heather Rabbatts, the most powerful woman in football, thinks about being the first woman on the board of The Football Association. Which leaders do women on boards get their inspiration from and why. How Paula Vennells, the CEO of the Post Office, one of the largest organisations in the UK, achieves her work/life balance. How Fiona Cannon at Lloyds Banking Group will achieve 40% gender diversity at senior level by 2020. How Toni Belcher, Partner at MHBC, cuts male tittle tattle when she walks into the boardroom. Find out the answers to these and many more questions, designed to give you an insight.
AUTHOR: Dr. Yvonne Thompson CBE spent over 30 years working in the communications industry. During most of this time she campaigned for minorities, small business owners and closest to her heart, race and women's equality in the workplace, especially the boardroom. Having spent nearly half that time being the only woman on a board with nine men, at Choice FM (the UK's first legal black music radio station, now Capital Xtra), she experienced at first-hand how lonely being at the top can be for a woman. Having decided to share her experience, thoughts, hints, tips and advice to help other aspiring women, she spent a year researching and talking to other highly successful women in boardrooms. She chose 22 women's stories to share with readers. With this book, she moves the women on boards conversation from being facts and figures to an easily accessible and achievable read that both women and men can aspire to.
