Dealmaker’s latest book unlocks Boardroom secrets for managers

Multi award-winning dealmaker, speaker and author Jo Haigh will be celebrating the launch of her latest book – which equips the ambitious with an insight into reaching the boardroom – at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield.

Endorsed by serial entrepreneur James Caan, The Keys to the Boardroom, How to Get There and How to Stay There, is the fifth book authored by Ms Haigh – a partner of Wakefield fds Corporate Finance and the fds Knowledge a specialist training and development business.

Both companies have offices in Wakefield, London and Birmingham.

Drawing on her 25 years plus experience as a director and non-executive director in which she has bought and sold over 300 companies – the book will help ambitious people to deal with boardroom dynamics, politics and prejudices.

Ms Haigh, whose high-profile accolades includes the 2013 Sunday Times NED of the Year title, said:

“Many people aspire to reach the boardroom but only a few achieve this goal. At the same time the director’s role is under unprecedented scrutiny with a raft of statutory regulations on how directors should behave.

“The Keys to the Boardroom provides a wealth of real life examples which will be invaluable to managers embarking on this journey.”

The event at the Hepworth Gallery, hailed as one of the finest contemporary art museums in Europe, takes place on November 28 from 6pm-11pm.  For more information visit
