“The Professional Boards Forum is more than a network. It has structure, focus and purpose and adds value in its own right. Above all PBF reinforces the message that it is still ‘merit first’.”
Sir Roger Carr, Chairman, BAE Systems plc
“As a potential NED looking to get noticed, attending a PBF event is a good place to start. Be clear on your experience and what you bring to the table – the opportunities are there and business needs to understand that our society at large requires diverse boards.”
Sir Mike Rake, Chairman, Phoenix Global Resources plc
Helping outstanding women find NED roles
