FLEMINGTON, N.J (PRWEB) June 13, 2019
BoardSuited®, a new and innovative executive education company, designed to prepare senior executives for board candidacy and service, has formed a strategic alliance with The Millennium Alliance, an invitation-only organization for Senior-Level Executives and Business Transformers. Together, they are committed to making an impact on both increasing the pool of candidates for board service, as well as the diversity of gender, race, age, and professional skills.
BoardSuited was created to fill a void in the executive education space, where many programs exist for current board directors, but very few prepare executives seeking their first board appointment. The program teaches executives how to accelerate their readiness and maximize their credibility to get the attention of nominating and governance committees—all through a self-paced, convenient online learning environment.
“Given that digital transformation, cybersecurity and diversity are all board level imperatives, we believe that our timing could not be better.” said Brocaglia “Teaming up with the Millennium Alliance gives us an opportunity to impact the pace at which we increase the size and diversity of the board candidate pipeline—which is not only central to our mission but one we share.”
The Millennium Alliance is a leading technology and business educational advisory organization in North America. Focusing primarily on areas such as business transformation, executive education, growth, policy, and needs analysis, Millennium has become one of the most dynamic locations for collaboration across the world.
“The Millennium Alliance is really excited to be partnering with not just BoardSuited, but more so Joyce Brocaglia, specifically, as she has been a staple and leading voice in the tech world for many years,” said Alex Sobol, Millennium Alliance Co-Founder & Managing Partner. “The BoardSuited offering fits in nicely with the type of opportunities we provide our members and clients and we are really looking forward to seeing how they will benefit from such an important part of their executive development.”
BoardSuited arms executives with a deep understanding of board service—from understanding roles and responsibilities and the significance of ownership structure to learning to work with and evaluate the CEO. The course draws on insights from a cadre of seated board directors from some of the biggest companies in the world representing public, private, advisory and nonprofit boards.
