Over 25 years ago I set a personal goal of serving as a paid corporate director. Since that time I have served on seven paid boards and currently am compensation chair at two public companies and one GSE – and I love what I do.

I knew people that were on boards themselves. Not one of them were willing to help me achieve my goal. Those that did help me were the least likely to do so. I want to help others in the same manner that the least likely of my associates helped me.

So many people have asked me how I have been able to become a corporate director that I have decided to help others do what I have done – starting with a free masterclass sharing what I have learned.

Welcome to this experience that was not in my plans, but is now in my spirit to pursue. Hopefully you will benefit from what I have learned. Corporate America needs you and there is no reason for you to miss your opportunity to serve.

– Dr. DeForest B. Soaries Jr.
