Join Breen Sullivan to learn more about how The Fourth Element can help you initiate and/or advance your for-profit board career.

Are you interested in sitting on a corporate board one day but feel like there is no roadmap for how to get there?  Have you wondered if there might be advantages to sitting on a startup advisory board?  Spoiler alert, there are many!

Learn how advisory boards can be an excellent way to get into the elusive ‘board candidate pipeline’ so you can qualify for governing boards and larger company boards down the road.  Advisory boards typically are compensated via equity, so serving on smaller company boards can be a great way to start building your own personal portfolio of wealth.

Serving on these boards can also help you advance in your career and successfully negotiate for a promotion or a raise – join us to learn more!
