Board Apprentice Global

“The idea of inspiring and guiding an influx of talented people from different backgrounds to take on board positions is the heart of what Board Apprentice does.

From the Digital Leadership Programme will come a whole new cohort of leaders who are digitally informed and aware, and will widen the pool of individuals who could one day sit on the board of a company. This is a huge step forward for Jersey as it will help to raise ‘home grown’ talent that could go on to break the traditional board member mould and bring new knowledge, insight and diversity to the table.”

– Charlotte Valeur
Founder and Chair of Board Apprentice Global.



“Pinpoint is a local business that we’re growing globally. The level of talent we are looking for unfortunately isn’t currently being raised on island, the Digital Leadership Programme is the first of its kind for Jersey and will be instrumental in fulfilling recruitment needs locally.”

– Tom Hacquoil
