Transpire – the leading Director Network. Your bridge to Board success...
The Transpire Approach
Practical, actionable Board Level networking Events, Masterclasses, Workshops and One-to-One coaching ensure senior Directors can increase Board expertise and supercharge growth in their companies and organisations.
There are talented and experienced people at the top of many companies or working as consultants who want to help other organisations benefit from their skills. There is a signficant demand from businesses looking for exactly this kind of help.
The Transpire Approach is to build bridges between properly qualified individuals and aspiring companies to match their mutual needs.
The Non-Exec Director Journey
Great CV, supported applications
CPD Certified Training and Networking
Become a Non-Exec Director or a Trustee
Transpire answers the question “how do I deploy my valuable business knowledge, experince and skills to find a new Non-Exec (NED) or Trustee role?” There are just under 250,000 UK businesses employing between 10 and 250 people ands 185,000 registered charities. Many of them are in urgent need of senior level strategic and governance support. Despite this, the NED market is fiercely competitive and good NED roles can be difficult to find.
We help you work-out your “offer” as a potential NED or Trustee, articulating your value clearly and succinctly. We create opportunity by running networking events and masterclasses attended by would-be NEDs and growing companies alike.
Develop your Board / Find a Trustee
There are times in every company’s development when some experienced outside advice is invaluable. Could a non-executive director (NED) benefit your business and how do you find one? Or are you a charity with skills gaps among your trustees?
While entrepreneurial companies are increasingly looking to leverage the experience, discipline and credibility a NED can provide, the NED market remains quite unstructured. Transpire provides some structure and discipline to finding an NED or Trustee. We have a strong network of experienced members representing a wide range of sectors and skills.
We also work with organisations with statutory Board requirements – Charities, Housing Associations and social enterprises.
Tony, it was a good group so they were a joy to help.
Bryan Foss - Non-Exec Director
Dear Tony, many thanks for a great evening – enjoyed the atmosphere, discussion and the advice.
Jane Williams - Non-Exec Director
Good session yesterday and interesting speaker as always.
Paul Williams - Transpire Member
Chair as Mentor was the best session I have attended so far. Very insightful.
Sarah Frost - Coach/Mentor
The Board Assurance session I found the most useful as, really for the first time, it introduced me to the Corporate Governance Code and the FPC. I felt David Styles really brought the subject to life.
Neil Baines Thomas - Coach/Mentor
Great topics of interests (plus I was on the panel) – diversity and inclusion are current topics which many organisations are failing to address properly. Some are still uncomfortable talking about the subject with faces like they are sucking lemons.
Vivienne Aiyela - NED/Transpire Member
Thanks, I enjoyed last night and found it very interesting and thought-provoking. You really have got your offering just right to meet my needs, and it will be a pleasure to continue working with you.
Cheryl Watts - Transpire Member

Rav (Bumbra) - Transpire Member
Hi Tony Great to meet you today. Really informative and useful session. Looking forward to learning more in the future about NED roles and maybe taking one up!
