I reviewed this book in February and for some reason my comments and my stars have disappeared.Named the board womans bible, 7 Traits of Highly Successful Women on Boards, is a timely read for both women and men who, like the author, strive for diversity in the boardroom. With a distinguished career in communications, the author, Yvonne Thompson CBE has long campaigned for minorities, small business owners and race and womens equality, particularly in the boardroom.
Her own moving story is an excellent introduction to her book. Her 22 interviewees are at the pinnacle of their chosen professions, representing corporate boards from all areas of UK business. They reveal very different backgrounds, motivations and traits. Essential reading for the men and women alread on boards and those who aspire to join them.
