Executive Transitions to Portfolio Career Program 

Knowing when and where to take the next step for your Executive career is no longer a straightforward decision. The Executive Transitions to Portfolio Career program gives you insight into your options to support you in discovering your own path to a portfolio career.

This program is designed for professionals who are considering a portfolio career or have recently started their journey towards building a solid portfolio of work. It is valuable for anyone in a period of transition, including those that may also be seeking to return to work in a full time, interim or project-based capacity.

What is a portfolio career?

A portfolio career is when an individual pursues more than one source of income source simultaneously. Usually the individual applies their various skills to different types of work from consulting to advisory board roles, governance board work or projects/part-time work, creating a diverse portfolio of work and income streams.

This program helps you to navigate that pathway – how to transition into a new role or to start building a portfolio career.


The program is a self-paced online program that is facilitated by Louise Broekman, Founder & CEO of Advisory Board Centre.

  • Gain insights from the Advisory Board Centre’s Mentor Panel, a group of experienced professionals who have all transitioned in their executive careers and share their strategies for developing a portfolio of work.
  • Understand your professional options and choices to determine your next steps.
  • Explore how to manage boundaries and the ethical practices of engagement.
  • Map your markets to define your personal value and top skills.
  • Create your brand ME and how you present your value to the market.
  • Learn how to get setup for a portfolio career, getting organised and putting together a personal 90day plan and exploring the power of professional mentoring.

Your time commitment to complete the program will largely be guided by how you want to leverage the tools and activity resources. We recommend 6-12 hours, including time for watching the videos, reading the materials, completing the activities and reflection.
