The Board Walk is a initiative that has been created to nurture the development 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.
Business and other leaders will be invited to host a table of between eight and ten people. The responsibility of the host will be to impart knowledge, experience and words of wisdom to the table, while directing the conversation.
The topics can be either specific or general as the host and the table pleases. Attendees will rotate tables twice during the breakfast, while the hosts remain at their table.
