London: March 31st 2020 – 5.30pm – 7.30pm

As a non-executive director, board member and chair, it is important to strive for best practice and share with your peers in a safe environment.

An opportunity for the NEDonBoard community interested in NED roles in the public sector to engage with 4 government departments on vacancies and NED opportunities, expand your network and meet with NEDs currently appointed to boards of:

  • the Department for Education
  • the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
  • the Ministry of Justice
  • and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Our events are designed for, and will most benefit, non-executive directors, board members, business leaders and executives operating at or near board level. Your board level peers are often the first to know of upcoming roles within the organisations they work for – come and meet them as making the most of engaging at our events is an important aspect of developing your board level career.

      “A very useful day. Professional and well run. I attended NEDonBoard’s ‘Become a Non-Executive Director’ course in February 2017. The content was well focussed, with good advice on role search, Board conduct and legal frameworks. I would highly recommend the day for those new to the NED environment, or as a refresher.”

      “We received numerous high calibre applications directly through the platform, among which 1/3 where selected for interviews and are pleased to welcome one of them as a new NED to our Board. […]  Separately we also attended one of the London events which were excellent learnings and networking opportunities – we highly recommend these for anyone looking to connect with suitable non-exec professionals.”
