BeOnBoard have had the pleasure of working with incredible catalysts and disruptors for change both on a corporate and individual level. Here’s what they had to say about working with us!
Our BeOnBoard Trustee #Success Stories
“I wanted to develop personally/ professionally, give back to the community and contribute my skills and expertise to a cause that is important to me. BeOnBoard were there every step of the way offering support and making my application experience run smoothly. Thanks to BoB I have landed a position as a trustee at Creative Youth Network, and can’t wait to get started!” – Akilah Walton, Creative Youth Network Trustee
“As a female and member of an ethnic minority group, I’ve personally experienced bias and it has at times broken down my confidence. Kalpna Woolf and the BoB team have given me the tools, the training and the motivation to pursue positions that I didn’t feel like I could get. The mentoring I’ve received has been invaluable and I’ve recently gained my first board position.
The work that Bob does is critical as it is impossible for a company to thrive without employees’ varied perspectives and experiences. BoB’s mission to change the typically homogenous board is to be celebrated.” – Ameeta Virk, Market Specialist in India & USA – Department for International Trade
“I now consider myself a friend of BeOnBoard, as they continue the amazing work across the region creating a pipeline for diverse and inclusive leadership.” – Ade Adebayo, Non-Executive Director, Business West
“Being a Trustee gave me a good environment to learn and practice senior-level skills. I chaired a subcommittee, evaluated, and wrote strategy and policy documents, represented the organisation at conferences, and reviewed funding bids. This has allowed me to secure other executive and non-executive roles.” – Kam Govind, Trustee of Vision North Somerset
“BeOnBoard connected me to organisations in the Southwest that matched my interests, as well as provided advice and support with my application. I offer a vision-driven approach to decision-making, strategic planning, and tactical implementation and having seen the work that GGLT do, I was convinced I could provide strong support, advice and steer as a Trustee.
My goal is to continue learning and paying it forward and working with an organisation such as BeOnBoard gave me the help I needed.” – Dr. Natalie Cozier, Trustee of Gatehouse Green Learning Initiative
“The importance of board representation with the inclusion of a diverse range of experiences is key, so shout-out to BeOnBoard for their honourable work in this area
I am super excited for this new journey in my life and I hope to bring value and serve those I represent well” – Priya Kaur, The University of the West of England’s Associate Board Member
