What We Do

At DirectorPrep.com, we are focused on only one thing - helping you get ready to fulfill your role at the board table.

Whether your board meeting is in-person or virtual, we want to ensure you feel competent, confident, and eager to get going each time you sit down to engage with your fellow board directors.

We help you build your governance skills, prepare for meetings, and ask great questions in the boardroom.

Build Your Governance Skills

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.

You need to know how your board is structured and how it functions. You need to develop a good grasp of what is expected of you as a director and how you can best contribute to the work of the board. And you need to stay on top of current trends in board governance and how they could affect you and your board.

Here’s how DirectorPrep can help build your governance skills.

Prepare for Meetings

Preparation is the key to success in the boardroom.

With the right kind of preparation, you can feel confident and ready to contribute to discussions and influence board decisions. It all comes down to following a repeatable process - and making a habit of it.

Here’s how DirectorPrep can help you prepare for board meetings.

  • We’ve developed the PREP Framework for you to download. It describes a simple process that you can repeat in the lead-up to your board meeting. Check out our PREP for Success page now for a link to the framework.

Ask Great Questions

By asking clear, compelling questions, you can make a significant contribution to discussions and influence board decisions.

When things get difficult in the boardroom, there’s a lot to be said for the way the right questions can open up positive dialogue. That’s why DirectorPrep.com is obsessed by questions.

Here’s how DirectorPrep can help you ask great questions.

  • We’ve distilled some of our best questions into downloadable Ten Great Questions resources. For example, check out our Power of Questions page now for a link to “Ten Great Questions about Risk”.
  • We explore the value of questions in our weekly blog series, The Savvy Director™. Check out our recent blog post, “Long Live the King” for some useful questions to ask about your organization’s financial situation.
