  Many of the UK’s most influential chairmen regularly attend our events and more than 50 new board roles have been awarded to our alumnae.

Feedback from chairmen and women participants for our events has been highly positive and the Forum has been widely covered by the business media. The Professional Boards Forum is playing a practical role in increasing the number of women in the boardroom.

We'd like to hear from you if you are:

A chairman interested in meeting highly qualified women NED candidates or an outstanding woman NED/potential NED with FTSE100/250 ambitions. Please contact Elin Hurvenes
