BOUND FOR THE BOARDROOM
Are you interested in board work?
Bound for the Boardroom is our newest initiative, building on our very popular Chambers format, but with a specific focus on creating a continuously evolving network for those who have either just landed their first boardroom position or those on the verge of their first mail.
A unique development network
Bound for the Boardroom is not another one of the incredibly many boardroom courses, which we somewhat popularly regard as “theory lessons”, but rather “practical driving lessons” in boardroom work, where in a confidential room you can draw on both the country’s leading boardroom experts and on like-minded peers among ambitious and sharp board aspirants. We train the board disciplines and spar with each other, so that everyone leaves the meetings with sharpened skills and new insights into the complex corporate governance and board environment.
We put all our knowledge and everyone’s experience from working with Danish and international boards for more than 23 years into play to create the most developing sparring forum, where we use some of Denmark’s strongest facilitators within the “new-to-the-board agenda”, and at the same time create the framework for playing each other even stronger in the efforts to succeed in the boardrooms.
Content of the meetings
We get through both the responsibility and risk of sitting on a board, we discuss the planning of the optimal annual cycle, we talk about personal marketing and brand-building, we review approaches to contact headhunters, active owners such as capital funds, board chairmen and the most optimal activities on social media, we discuss experiences with board education etc., we make board role plays based on cases from e.g. INSEAD, IMD, Stanford and Harvard Business School, and not least we offer concrete mentor feedback on your CV and board pitch from e.g. professional board chairmen, headhunters and capital fund partners.
All of our Bound for the Boardroom groups are diversely composed, with representatives from all functional backgrounds, all industries, all company sizes, all forms of ownership – and across gender as well as age. The groups consist of max. 20 participants each, and each season offers 5 meetings in each group.
The framework for the meetings
The meetings are held on alternate days of the week between 15-19 in our beautiful premises on Hellerup Strandvej with a view of Øresund. All meetings end with a good glass of wine or soft drink and a bite of bread in the form of delicious sushi, tapas, or a selection of charcuterie.

MEMBERHSIP – BOARD NETWORK
Board Network is Denmark’s strongest and most influential board network.
Thus, The Board Network is a unique network which, in addition to focusing on best practice in board work, also gives members access to inspiration from a large number of both Denmark’s and the world’s most experienced and leading/revolutionary board chairmen, professors and advisors within corporate governance. The emphasis at the members’ meetings is primarily on value proposition through the forward-looking strategic and management task, and to a lesser extent on the backward-looking control task of the board’s work.
To ensure the best possible interaction and sparring between the members, Board Network, as the country’s most exclusive board network, is reserved for members with relevant experience in relation to board work. Admission to the network takes place via invitation or application for admission. All applications for membership are assessed individually. We are continuously accepting new members within all three of our membership categories.
