"CXOs, CTOs, VPs, EVPs, CIOs, CISOs, CFOs, startup CEOs who are seasoned and board ready. Then there are subject matter experts, exemplars in their own fields, domain experts, doctors, academicians, inventors who need to get some more exposure with shadow board roles and immersive experiences before assuming board responsibilities. And the third category are those individuals making a social impact - be it in the areas of sustainability, human rights, geopolitical influence and government relations, influencing policy and legislation that impact our daily lives."
