Next Director, the LinkedIn group for emerging, practicing and leading company directors, reached 4,000 global members in August - a significant milestone for the online community founded in 2008.

The group is an online community where company directors from around the world can collaborate and engage with peers on a diverse range of director-related issues.

Next Director serves the needs of company directors, who value the peer-to-peer relationships and discussions, however may not see value in maintaining expensive membership to a traditional member services organisation.

The group has been identified by LinkedIn Australia as a leading group in Australia for company directors. Next Director was featured by LinkedIn in their 100 Success Stories campaign celebrating 100million global members and was also featured in BNet, BRW, and various business blogs and publications.

Founder Michael Field, describes the groups success as a “pleasant surprise.” He attributes the success of the group to “a fanatical focus on the caliber of the membership and the quality of the conversations”.

He added: “Not everyone who applies to join the group will qualify. Members need to be a current or former company director, governance advisor or regulator. That being said, we also encourage emerging directors to join. The group provides great insights for emerging directors whose career path is leading towards directorships opportunities.”
