It also provides exposure to other disciplines that you may not encounter in your day job, such as financial reporting, strategic planning, or market analyses, to name a few. Business Development Working on boards gives executives unique access to business leaders across the region and provides the opportunity to demonstrate professional value through meaningful participation in board meetings.
