Maximise Your Chances of Success with an Executive Biography

Are You Ready to Trade Your Old Chronological CV for an Executive Biography?

In the UK we are addicted to producing CVs which are a chronological summary of our work experience and qualifications. However, as you rise through the corporate ranks, the less relevant your early work history becomes. So, before you automatically add your last job to your current CV, think carefully about where you are today, and what you hope your next role will be.

What Does An Executive Biography Include?

An executive biography includes the usual items that you would expect to see in a chronological CV. These include the commercial elements such as your employment history and awards and then some personal information about your family life and hobbies. The latter section helps your biography stand out against the text-book biographies.

A great executive biography can be used for all of your potential commercial stakeholders:

  • Enabling investors to decide whether you are qualified to run the business
  • Providing prospective customers with enough information to choose whether they trust you to manage their budgets and business relationship
  • Allowing enough insight into your management style for employees to decide whether you are an effective leader
  • Reassuring conference attendees that they will learn something from listening to you.

What is the Difference Between a Chronological CV and an Executive Biography?

The main difference between an executive biography and a standard CV is the format. The executive biography is presented as longer paragraphs describing your commercial awards and achievements, whereas a chronological CV is presented as a list of all of your roles with brief bullet points of achievements.

What Roles Are Executive Biographies Suitable For?

Professionally written executive biographies are suitable for candidates who hold the following job titles:

  • Chief Executive Officer
  • Chief Operations Officer
  • Chief Marketing Officer
  • Managing Director
  • Global Marketing Director
  • Business Development Director
