How can you get appointed to a Board of Directors? Share your experience and/or opinion.

Let me share my experience and what got me to the board. 1. Respect of the C-suite that I can add value to the enterprise beyond technology 2. Communication skills. Crisp, clear and to the point. 3. Acknowledgment from the IT industry as a business leader which came up in meetings of partners with the CEO 4. Engaging the Board regularly on various aspects of the industry and our business 5. Customer focus. Internal and external 6. Understanding of financials and ratios that matter to the company. 7. Networking. Beyond the companies where I worked my Board nomination and selection was due to recommendations from my network Hope this helps
