The DirectorPrep™ Resource Hub

You now have easy access to board resources all in one place. We’re talking about curated lists of podcasts, websites, blogs, books, social media and GNDI links.

Here’s why we did this for you.

Not long ago, we published a blog post called The Six Key Habits of The Savvy Director™. The very first key habit listed was Build Governance Skills.

I believe strongly that knowing and understanding the board’s role and directors’ responsibilities is an important attribute for effective board directors. You can't be a Savvy Director until you have a solid understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a board of directors, and of your own duties as a director.

The Resource Hub is designed to be useful for directors of all experience levels.


New and Aspiring Directors

I’ve done a lot of work with not-for-profits and spent a lot of time with first-time directors. I know how important it is for you to quickly grasp the fundamentals of board governance. You need to know how your board is structured and how it functions. You need a good grasp of what's expected of you and how you can contribute.

All of this is made easier with access to the right resources – resources to help you understand the board’s stewardship role and your responsibilities as a director.

That’s why we created the DirectorPrep Resource Hub, a collection of curated links gathered in one spot to support your governance journey. The Resource Hub provides you with quick and easy access to all sorts of great resources dedicated to the art of board governance – from books to blogs and everything in-between.


Experienced Directors

But the DirectorPrep Resource Hub is not just for new or aspiring directors. Savvy Directors understand that corporate governance is not a static topic. The role of the board continues to evolve as boards assume new responsibilities and are more proactively engaged in a broader spectrum of functions. Experienced directors are always learning. They need to stay on top of governance trends and how they could affect their board.

Experienced directors add value to their boards by sharing their wisdom. But wisdom is not just about longevity or time served. It’s about continuous improvement of our skill set, communicated in an effective way. 

"Sometimes, to fully wrap my mind around an issue, I need to quickly access "thought leadership". DirectorPrep's Resource Hub is a gateway, a portal of portals to quickly access a wide swath of information. It's a Swiss Army knife for the boardroom."
– Brian Hayward, C.DIR, ICD.D, Corporate Director and author of The Great Chair
