Your LinkedIn profile should reflect your Board CV. A Board CV is different from an executive CV and is likely to make the difference between a success and unsuccessful application. It makes sense to get both items Board Ready at the same time.
We heavily recommend using LinkedIn to generate the kinds of relationships that lead to board appointments. However, to do this you must have a robust profile that accurately reflects your experience (and most importantly your success) and fully demonstrates what you can offer a board.
A Board Ready CV is different both in terms of tone, content and structure and can make the difference between a successful application and an unsuccessful one. So, regardless of how much weight you think a board resume carries (they carry a lot of weight), it is best to get one professionally written at the beginning of your board search.
