Our NED Advisory Coaching compliments programmes such as the highly respected FT Non-Executive Director Club. Clients have said that the FT programme provides a sound technical platform for a prospective NED and a great opportunity to network. Baxter Neumann’s coaching helps at a practical level to convert the theory into the reality of a successful outcome.
With our experience in the NED market, we help clients to access suitable opportunities, refine their CV proposition, refresh their interview technique and rehearse their post-appointment plan. Ultimately it is about ‘standing out’; having the edge compared to other NED candidates, securing an opportunity and thereafter performing as an effective and confident Board member.
Initially created to help high performing female executives to be supported for prospective senior executive and NED appointments, our menu based services have subsequently evolved. Baxter Neumann now coach male and female ‘future leaders’ as well as mature, longer serving colleagues, who would benefit from having an external perspective to help them ‘grow’ and optimise their leadership position.
We offer market access, tools and real-world insight, as well as practical support for executives to obtain their first or subsequent NED/Advisory Board appointment. Targeted coaching of this kind is producing great results for clients and ultimately a better ROI than many ‘sheep dip’ initiatives or general coaching programmes that lack precision or purpose.
