Are you thinking of taking your career to another level and becoming a Non-Executive Director? Do you want to learn how to succeed in the role from an experienced, successful NED with a passion for knowledge sharing?
As forward-looking boards seek improved external context, objective challenge and skills infusion, the role of the Non-executive director has never been more important.

Drawing extensively on real life case studies, role play exercises and structured discussions, delegates will build a clear understanding of what’s needed to successfully secure a NED position and add value in the role.
