How do I become a Certified Chair™?
Supporting organisations at a Board level is a serious undertaking and it may not be suitable for everyone. It requires skill and experience combined with the motivation to add value and positive impact to the organisations you serve.
Effective Chairs can come from any professional background or industry. Organisations value Chairs that are active in the market, current in their networks and invested in their own learning and development.
As the developers and custodians of the Advisory Board Best Practice Framework™, the Advisory Board Centre is the sole organisation authorised to deliver authenticated education and resources globally for the Advisory Board Best Practice Framework™ and Certified Chair™ credentials.
