What readers are saying...
'This is a great book at de-mystifying Boards: the different types of Boards that exist in the for-profit, not-for-profit and statutory sectors; the various roles that Board members play; and what skills, experience and perspectives can be of value as a prospective Board member. Don't be put off by the idea of Boards being some magical entities - if you're keen, there's probably a Board for you somewhere! The book is entertaining and very easy to read'.
- Andy from Melbourne, Australia
'As an aspiring Board member, I have found Stacey's book 'Fly To The Boardroom' to be a highly practical and helpful resource. Since reading the book I have been approached by two organisations asking me to nominate for their Management Committee. Thanks to Stacey's advice, I knew what questions to ask, what to look for, and how to compare these opportunities with my personal goals and reasons for joining a board. Stacey's writing style is warm and conversational, with advice that leaves you feeling inspired and ready to achieve your goals. I highly recommend this book to anyone starting out on their Board journey'.
