“A fantastic experience. Following a corporate career, I found the ability to share ambitions, concerns and excitement with like minded people are looking for a supportive and informative framework to help you launch or improve your portfolio career, the 'Ahead of the Curve' course (a great insight into your self awareness and how to interact with different types of senior execs) and ongoing support from the In-Touch NonExecDirectors team, a strong business confidence booster. Oh...and...two other members and I have gone into business together. I have extended my membership to 5 years. Highly recommended if you are serious about becoming a Non-Executive Director.”

"I knew that I had many skills that I could use to go into consultancy, but without any real knowledge on how to promote them, how to analyse them and how to really button down, what it was that I can do for myself as a consultant and “Ahead Of The Curve”, really helped me focus in, decide exactly what I’m able to do, with the skill set that I have and within the first few sessions, I won my first contract."
