Senior Executives get made redundant too

The Academy for Chief Executives, a leading provider of experiential business learning® facilitates groups of CEOs and Managing Directors who meet together every month to network and take full advantage of experiential learning. Part of membership is ‘The Board You Could Never Afford®‘ where members take their issues to the table and discuss with their peers.

An issue recently discussed was that of a Managing Director who had been made redundant after spending over 20 years with the employer.

I’d like to share with you some snippets of the advice offered by fellow members:

  • Consider trying Interim work after losing your job
  • When you’re made redundant it’s important not to rush into things – take time to get your “head straight” before trying to get interviews
  • Make sure that your CV really addresses all your strengths and experience before applying for new jobs. It is often best to get someone with recruitment/agency experience to help you with this as they can see things that you might take for granted

Membership of The Academy for Chief Executives isn’t just about sharing the good times – many members find the support of their fellow members invaluable during difficult times, whether that be the chance of utilising a wider network of business leaders, or simply to talk through a problem or challenge with a sympathetic, but unbiased ear.

The above is just a snippet of the advice given by our members. For confidentiality reasons we cannot divulge all of the advice provided – however, we do hold open meetings where guests are able to attend and experience for themselves the real power of ‘The Board You Could Never Afford®’.

    I happen to land to this page and it is a well written read, a little on the short side, but a pretty sufficient one.
    I definetly like the layout too, it is very very simple to navigate.

    Really love the layout and navigation of the site, easy on the eyes and well put together.
    some of the other sites are just way too overflowing with commercials
