The Boardroom Blueprint is developed by Tamara Paton to help motivated leaders get on boards and make a positive impact once there.


The program course includes:

  • 5 weekly video modules released via the private Boardroom Blueprint course site
  • 4 weekly group coaching calls where Tamara will answer your questions and assist participants with personalized advice
  • Independent exercises to complete after each weekly module
  • Bonus library, including Tamara’s contact database of 400+ executive recruiters filling board roles today.  Tamara will also share her favourite questions to ask in networking meetings and board interviews
  • Lifetime access to all program materials, including updates, so you can learn at your own pace when you are ready.

During the 5-week journey, you will

  • Master the methods successful corporate directors use to find paid board positions

The actual investment cost is C$997 plus taxes, but LeadWomen members pay only C$330 (RM1,050) if we have a minimum group of 10 and above participants to start the course.
