Transpire – the leading Director Network. Your bridge to Board success...
The Transpire Approach
Our goal is to help you get Board ready and be an effective Director once you join a Board.
Practical, actionable, Board Level Training events, The Knowledge Hub, Transpire Faculties, the High-Performing NED Toolkit, One-to-One coaching and Masterclasses; we ensure Directors can increase Board expertise and supercharge growth in their companies and organisations.
There is a significant demand from businesses and not-for-profits looking for experienced, well-trained and skilled Directors.
The Transpire Approach is to provide the tools any Director or aspiring Director needs to be genuinely effective and to build bridges between properly qualified individuals and aspiring companies to match their mutual needs.
The benefits of Transpire Membership
Since Transpire began creating services for Directors and Trustees in 2012, the business world has experienced dramatic change. Complexity has multiplied, digital is sweeping old certainties (and companies) aside, regulation is ever-evolving and new generations of people have entered the workforce with expectations that challenge established conventions. And this was before Covid-19 struck.
How do Directors navigate these uncertain waters? Our experience shows that effective Directors are open to new ideas and perspectives, believe in continuously improving themselves and their organisations, engage with sector experts and peers and challenge themselves every day.
We have built our Membership services on the idea that being a Director is a journey, not a destination. From renowned experts leading our sessions, to Transpire Faculties, from the breadth and depth of our Knowledge Hub to the High-Performing NED Toolkit, we have developed an offer any effective Director or aspiring Director will value.
CPD Accredited Director training
We have been delivering Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited Programmes and premium networking opportunities since 2015.
There are no physical Transpire Training and Networking events for the time being but we have a full programme of online sessions. Highly regarded board leaders and experts present to and debate with session attendees on key topics relevant to every Director and NED in today’s increasingly complex world.
If you are:
- An individual looking to develop your board career
- A CEO/Founder of a high growth early stage business
- On the board of a more mature business or charity
- An investor or business incubator in search of NEDs
then Transpire’s Board training is for you. These programmes are included as part of Transpire Membership and many are exclusive to Members.
Transpire Faculties and the Knowledge Hub
Transpire Faculties are lead by recognised Board Level leaders who run sessions, highlight articles and other materials in their specialist area. The Knowledge Hub is has been built up over the last eight years, it contains expert presentations, session videos, regulatory codes and articles from influential publications. Together they form a formidable resource for any Director.
Faculties and The Knowledge Hub cover these areas:
- Board Governance
- Digital Transformation

Faculties and the Knowledge Hub are exclusive to Transpire Members and part of Transpire membership.
Enhanced Member Services
No two Director journeys are the same.
Organisations want people to bring a valuable perspective to their Boards; the knowledge, skills and behaviour to ask the right questions – evaluate the appropriate strategies and strategically support the business via a broad network of business contacts, industry and sector knowledge, or even access to funding.
Transpire can help you to work-out what your “offer” is as a Director, with the ability to articulate your value clearly and succinctly – be it in the area of leadership, strategy support, change management, financial re-structuring or team culture.
One to one or small group coaching, Board CV development, support around role application and our Portfolio Optimisation Matrix are services that will enhance your Director career. They are available to all Transpire Members at an additional cost.
