Great personal development doesn't happen alone.
It happens together
So, in socially distanced workplaces, how can you make sure it still happens?
Hear more from the creators of the Personal Boardroom
In this video, Zella and Amanda, the creators of Personal Boardroom, talk about how their approach encourages people to take charge of their own development, and how the Personal Boardroom planning tool can be used for that purpose.

Zella ran a fantastic session for my team which helped them understand the strengths and weaknesses within their current networks. It helped them identify areas where they can improve and forced them to think about their next steps and how / who could help them get there. The session also taught them to be bolder in asking for help. Zella was empathetic, insightful and an excellent presenter and facilitator.
Insightful, engaging and actionable. Amanda’s professionalism and conversational approach created an atmosphere of openness that allowed all to participate in ‘Your Personal Boardoom’ activities both beneficial and tangible.
As someone who doesn’t like the whole idea of networking, I love the Personal Boardroom construct. It helped me really think about what I need to prioritise and gave me a structure to do it within. My observation was that a number of others felt the same and got some real benefit from the speed network session by being able to have focussed and meaningful discussions aligned to their goals
Zella’s session was inspiring in the way that it asked some fundamental questions about our business and personal relationships, encouraging strategic but also very practical action to broaden our perspective. Zella helped us identify and target a variety of opportunities, which we can leverage with a powerful tool to help us think about managing our refreshed networks as the year unfolds.
The Baileys global team is leading a transformational turnaround on the brand. This requires working with a very broad group of stakeholders. Working with Amanda and the Personal Boardroom tools enabled us to sharpen and tighten our relationship maps, identify areas where we were missing key roles in our virtual boardroom and also identify how and where to add divergent and more diverse thinking to our team.
Zella ran a fantastic session with the fundraising department at Teach First. Taking the time to consider who makes up your personal boardroom, what you need from them, and where your gaps are was incredibly enlightening to the department. It also enabled people to look beyond their ‘instant’ contacts to those who provide different perspectives and mindsets. The session was energetic, fast paced and with key actions that people have taken away.
Zella ran a great session for the European Legal & Compliance team at a time when our business is embarking on a period of change. She challenged us to think about who we rely on, and who will need to rely on us, as the business moves forward. People found it a very useful wakeup call.
A vibrant, illuminating and engaging authority on networking best practice, Zella’s energetic and interactive session engaged the whole room – offering theoretical and practical tactics on how we can network effectively and sincerely with each other to build and develop meaningful business relationships.
At ESB, we celebrate inclusion. This year on International Women’s Day, we hosted a Masterclass on Strategic Networking and invited Amanda Scott from Personal Boardroom to show us how to really power up our networks and build relationships that empower us every day, to achieve our potential and to be at our best. Who is in Your Personal Boardroom encourages each of us to consciously strive for a diverse personal boardroom and to Pay It Forward by playing one to of the 12 Personal Boardroom roles for someone else.
Zella’s session went down a storm, and the Personal Boardroom language continued to be used for the rest of the week. I personally loved the session too. Zella was very engaging and she did an excellent job of making her content relevant to us and our agenda.
Really like the Personal Boardroom approach to helping leaders develop stronger relationships/networks that build their influence inside and outside the organisation. Many thanks to Amanda Scott for running a great event. Great feedback coming through from leaders.
As a speaker and presenter, Zella lights up the room with her engaging and energetic style. Her talks combine research evidence and real life examples with activities that stimulate people to take action. The outcome is that people have better-focused conversations with a broader range of people, and that benefits our business.
The workshop was absolutely brilliant and a huge inspiration to all of us. It was so useful to have some practical advice and we all left feeling incredibly galvanised to think about how we can use the personal boardroom to achieve this year’s goal.

You become the experts
Often the most successful learning interventions take off when the language and thinking becomes part of your everyday, and when people take responsibility for their own learning.
A simple, visual, engaging tool …
We know that companies want lively, engaging resources that make learning real for their people. And they want to do this at scale.
Our planning tool is a simple web app that provides the basics of what a Personal Boardroom is, and how to start building one.
It includes videos with the co-founders, and succinct, practical advice that will support your people to use it on their own, at any time, in a way that suits them.
… that allows you to be the experts
We are finding that, once people start using the Personal Boardroom, L&D professionals increasingly want to incorporate it into in their own internal training and development.
Your internal trainers can run their own Personal Boardroom workshops using the tool as the foundation.

The Personal Boardroom online tool, together with webinars and online resources, has made it possible for us to take a helpful concept, which I and other senior women first encountered in face-to-face sessions, and offer it to colleagues at all levels of the bank. It makes them aware of how things get done through relationships. It makes them think who are the people to help them get the right decision over the line. I think it can make all of us better at our jobs.
