Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) are no longer the preserve of large organisations, with more organisations than ever choosing to flexibly adopt new talent to the board.  The panel will be discussing this new environment by addressing the following topics:

What is it that enables one organisation’s board to deliver its leadership role more effectively than another?

Where leadership truly begins to emerge, there is often a team of people forming a board that have the appropriate mix of knowledge, skill and insight to take the organisation forward. NEDs form a crucial part of that team; exercising impartial & independent judgement.

Additionally, corporate governance is now a high priority for all types of organisation, whether operating in the private, public or third sectors.  The consequences of failure are grave but the rewards for success are high.

Who should attend? This event will focus on routes to becoming a Non-Executive Director, the relationships between Executive and Non-Executive Directors and the benefits to the firm of a strong and balanced Board of Directors. Our speakers will highlight their board experiences, how they have developed a portfolio of non-executive director positions and the impact they make. The discussion will thus be of interest to aspiring NEDs, organisations seeking to appoint NEDs and existing NEDs

This free seminar is organised by Executives Online in conjunction with the Institute of Directors, the University of Exeter Business School who run the IoD Director Development programme in the Region and Executive Transitions
