Olga V. Mack is an innovative, creative thinker. In her new book, Blockchain Value, Olga takes a deep dive into complicated technological concepts and provides information about how blockchain will transform the way we work, live, and even think.
Olga's book "Get On Board" is a must for anyone considering the board journey. The book guides you through the process of determining your goals, a roadmap of how to achieve them and the preparation of your Board Bio, resume and value proposition. I found this to be my most valuable tool!
Olga has been an outstanding leader at our Company. She brings her legal expertise along with strong business acumen to tackle challenges and remove obstacles we've faced at ClearSlide. She's been a fantastic business partner to our executive team, impactful mentor to colleagues and outstanding manager to her team.
Olga is a wealth of knowledge that she shares freely and gently. If it were not for her personable nature and humility, I would be intimidated by her knowledge and credentials. Highly recommend working with Olga. She is an asset to any team.
I had been curious to learn more about blockchain, so I ordered Olga's book, Blockchain Value: Transforming Business Models, Society, and Communities. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned SO MUCH. For the first time, the concepts surrounding blockchain were easy for me to grasp. The graphics are great and kept me entertained.
Olga's building blocks book "Blockchain Value" is an fantastic resource to anyone looking to get serious about learning what the heck this new tech world means. Her book is chockablock full of critical information. But it is also written in a way that is not only accessible to anyone, but also easily digestible. I found her book incredibly helpful. I highly recommend the book to anyone else looking to understand blockchain.
Olga's book "Get on Board" is a great book for anyone looking to secure their first board seat! It provides great background and context on the board seat world, the types of boards, what to look for to ensure you're finding a board seat that is a good fit for YOU, and even includes exercises for you to work through to narrow down your specific type of board seats, as well as samples of documents that you need to develop in order to apply for these types of positions! It's an easy read with so many practical tips that you can start using right away! I highly recommend! Thanks Olga for writing this book! It's my user manual for board positions!
Olga is a wonderful author, corporate governance guru, blockchain strategist, start-up advisor, public speaker, award-winning general counsel, and women’s advocate! I would highly recommend her Blockchain Value: Transforming Business Models, Society, and Communities book. The book is packed full of value and will help you to understand technology, finance, and law all mixed together. Olga's passion for disruptive technologies really shines through in the book by focusing on the values of blockchain across multiple industries!
"Get on Board" is a must-read for anyone preparing to become a board member, especially for public or private corporate boards. The book was recommended to me while I was preparing my own board bio, by two people whom I highly respect ( one of them was a professional trainer for board-readiness and a former corporate board member for a large bank.) I find the information in this book comprehensive, easy to understand, helpful and value-packed. All the samples of bios towards the end of this book and all the advice in the section about board bios helped me improve my bio substantially. A Board bio is indeed different from an executive resume, requiring new skills and mindset changing. I will again use Olga Mack's advice in her book to prepare my board CV and interviews later on my journey. Thank you!
Olga's book has been incredibly informative. The goal of the book is to make you objectively think about whether or not you are able or willing to make the commitment to expand your horizons. It gives practical advice and guidance as to what you need to do to organize and present yourself. Be prepared. The introspection and analysis required is not easy, nor is it meant to be. However, the end result is that you end up preparing yourself better with a game plan to become a more educated and beneficial board member that provides significant value for organizations. This is not a book with an easy ending. You will work and ask yourself serious questions, which is meant to ensure that you go into this prepared and understanding yourself well enough to succeed.
