Our Values

Board Suited is passionate about educating professionals who aspire to be on boards. We believe that knowledge is power and we know that given the competitive landscape of gaining a seat on a board, preparation is the key to success.

We want to ensure that those who are currently board ready gain the valuable tools they need to best position themselves for board service as well as the knowledge of what to expect in their role and responsibilities as a new board member.

We care deeply about not only educating, but inspiring and instilling confidence in those professionals who are not yet board ready, but aspire to be on a board. We understand the importance of giving learners an opportunity and tools early enough in their careers to both gain an understanding of the workings of a board and the ability to assess their own skills and identify gaps that need to be addressed so that they can course correct and gain the skills necessary for board service.

We develop all of our offerings with a holistic understanding of our learners needs and we work diligently to ensure that they have a positive, interesting and fun time taking our course.
