Boardwave Live Events
Our members-only gala events are hosted by the leading lights in European software, many of which are our Patrons or Nextwavers. They offer a unique opportunity to meet and network with existing members and forge new relationships.
Through our Events Connect page, you can see the profiles of other members registered to attend an event and you can request to be connected. In this way you can fix a time to meet at the event, and arrive knowing that you have a series of meaningful new people to engage with. Additionally, you can use the Events Connect after the event to follow-up with members you didn't get the chance to talk to.
The Boardwave Connection Centre* helps you make the right connections. So, if you're a member looking to be connected to another, our platform allows you to profile just the right person to provide expert guidance & advice or mentorship.
See all your live or pending connection requests in "My Connections", where full contact details are revealed for those who have accepted your connection requests.
There are three types of connections available:
Expert Connect, for when you have a burning issue that you need some quick guidance on.
Mentor Connect, if you're seeking a longer term relationship with a possible mentor (50% of our members agree to mentor others).
Event Connect allowing you to connect to others attending the same Boardwave event, either before to agree a liaison, or afterwards in follow-up.

Breakfast & Dinner Debates
Boardwave's series of intimate breakfasts and dinners encourage free-flowing discussion and debate. Each event revolves around a carefully chosen theme or topic of importance to its members. These discussions are led by industry heavyweights, individuals with specific and relevant expertise in the topic at hand.
The exclusivity of these gatherings is a key factor in their success. By keeping the guest list limited, Boardwave ensures that the participants can engage directly with the industry heavyweight and fellow members.
A curated group of 6-8 CEO volunteers, come together for an in-depth self-guided four hour session, to confidentially discuss and explore their leadership and business challenges. Boardwave provides a professional moderator in local language to facilitate the session, supported by Boardwave's Breakout guidelines.
And if the dynamics are right, the group may agree to meet once for each of the following three quarters, to track and discuss each others progress towards success
Fifty percent of our members agree to also be Mentors, dedicating their time and expertise to guide and support their peers.
Boardwave's Mentoring Programme is designed to connect you to people with all the relevant experience and skills to help you solve real-world problems for tangible results.
