The Role of the NXD in Growing a Company

This practical programme, led by experienced Chairs and NXDs, focuses on key issues which every NXD should be aware of and caters for those with interests in all types and sizes of organisations – listed, private, entrepreneurial, SMEs, public sector and not-for-profit. Each interactive session has been extended this year to provide even more vital learning to cope with a variety of changes facing Non-Execs.

Session 2: The Role of the NXD in Growing a Company

Speaker: George Elliott CA Plural Chair of private and listed companies, former CFO Wolfson Microelectronics plc

This session will focus on the issues and challenges arising with entrepreneurial firms including managing the founder and other investors, setting strategic direction, adhering to the business plan (and overcoming issues when you miss it), building an effective board, dealing with conflict and fundraising.

Whether you already have experience on a Board or are looking for your first appointment, these issues are relevant and important for every NXD, from start-up/spinout company to listed business. This session will be covering practical case studies in working groups and plenary sessions for wider group feedback and debate.
