Discover Your Pathway

Knowing when and where to take the next step in 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.

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.

Independent guidance for your next professional opportunity

A portfolio career, also known as a board career, is when an individual pursues more than one engagement or source of income 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.

For many professionals, a portfolio career is an attractive option. It can provide flexibility, variety, autonomy and earning capacity. This program helps you to navigate that pathway – how to transition into a new role or to start building a portfolio career.

Completion of this program may contribute towards continuing professional development/education (CPD/CPE) requirements for members of professional associations. The Executive Transitions to a Portfolio Career program is equivalent to 4 hours CPD.

Will I need to buy anything else to gain value from this program?

No. This is not a lead in sales tool or a gimmick to sell you something else. We speak with 1000’s of professionals each year that are evaluating their options and are seeking independent advice in a sales & pitch free environment.

This program is designed to share a practical pathway with you to evaluate and plan your next steps for the future.

What am I doing here? It’s definitely clearer to me now. The exercises showed me that I actually have clarity about what I would like to do. And also how much I have to learn and do to minimise the risks. I had not really thought of my goals in this way before in depth.
