So, you want to serve on a public board?  Public Directors can spend as much as 300 hours a year, per company, monitoring the company’s activities and shaping the company’s strategy to protect shareholder interests.  What does this mean?  We continue the discussion to help women manage their board search. Topics include developing and using an elevator pitch; networking; how to build out your network in a way that will enhance your chances and strategies and tactics to manage your board search.  

Dede Orraca-Cecil is a consultant in Egon Zehnder’s Board, CEO and Leadership Advisory Practices. She consults on a wide range of talent acquisition and leadership solutions to help meet the challenges that many of her clients face as they seek to build and lead best-in-class organizations. Her prior expertise in corporate governance and public policy have made her a trusted advisor to boards, CEOs, and senior executives on issues of recruitment, team effectiveness, leadership development, and change management. Dede is also a fellow with the Aspen Institute with a focus on helping companies move beyond the rhetoric of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion into practical strategic planning and implementation.  Before joining Egon Zehnder, Dede was a Principal in the healthcare practice of Tapestry Networks, a strategy consulting firm specialized in creating multi-stakeholder public-private partnerships to address issues in health care, finance, and corporate governance.
