FWB Park Brown and The University of Edinburgh Business School are delighted to announce the third series of The Non-Executive Director Programme
This year’s programme has been extended to cover new growth areas and emerging sectors.
Non-Executive Directors (NXDs) have, in recent years, become the subject of increased scrutiny and analysis, much of which has been well documented in the media. This has led to NXDs having increased levels of responsibility and accountability, thereby increasing the support, knowledge and experience required of them. In that context, this programme has been designed to help prepare individuals for NXD roles.
The programme is highly practical, led by experienced Chairs and NXDs and focusses on those key issues of which every NXD should be aware. It also caters for those interested in all types and sizes of organisation - listed, private, entrepreneurial, SMEs, public sector, and not-for-profit.
Building on the success of the last two years, the programme has been extended this year to cover some of the faster growth areas in technology, where there will be increasing opportunities for NXDs, but where many may lack experience or knowledge.
Each session is interactive and includes group activities and case studies addressing real events, together with plenary Q&A and discussion. The sessions have been designed to allow time for interaction and active learning in each area. Whilst each session has a main topic, the discussions and questions will be wide-ranging.
Each session ends with an opportunity to network over drinks and canapés.
