Developing tomorrow’s Executives in the East of England
Pure Executive have created the Board Ready Talent Scheme to support organisations in the East of England to grow and fast track their talent to become ‘Board Ready’; equipping them to step up to a Board role whilst gaining an insight into both Executive and Non-Executive Director (NED) roles. It also provides an optional unique development opportunity for ambitious individuals to observe on a host organisation’s board over a 12-month period.
The programme is delivered through a combination of world-class executive training, mentoring and experience with host organisations. High-calibre individuals are supported to make the career step up to a board level position and become well-rounded board members of the future.
The scheme aims to help businesses in the region to develop their leaders of the future, bring greater diversity to their boards and to build a succession pipeline. By offering this opportunity exclusively to organisations in the Eastern region, Pure Executive are in a unique position to leverage the relationships, partnerships and extensive network formed over the past 20 years. Bringing like-minded progressive organisations and leaders together, Pure Executive is able to facilitate a collaborative arrangement, providing secondment opportunities between participating organisations, where everyone benefits.
Created on a not for profit basis, the scheme supports Pure’s purpose - contributing to the growth of the region. Developing the talent pipeline of Executive and Non-Executive Directors in the East of England, and supporting organisations to achieve a more balanced representation at Board, will help to ensure the region continues to thrive, remains innovative and is a great place to work.
“It is a pleasure to support the Board Ready Scheme. The Board Ready scheme is a great way to prepare senior managers for the next big step onto a board, mixing robust theory with real-life pragmatism to provide a series of great insights into life on a board - whether as an executive or as a non-executive. In this way, it offers participants a unique and special insight into the boardroom."
