Strategies to Become a NED in 2024

January 30 | 8:45 am - 9:30 am


A common misconception is that executive experience automatically translates to appointability as a NED.

The reality is that this transition can take more consideration and preparation than might be expected. Furthermore, a strategic approach is also required to continue in one’s evolution as a NED and in developing a NED portfolio.

With a decade of experience supporting the board community in preparing for non-executive director roles and then excelling in the boardroom, this event is an opportunity to learn some top tips and strategies for becoming a NED in 2024.

The session will be chaired by NEDonBoard team member Elise Perraud.  Elise has supported hundreds of professionals in their successful transition to non-executive directorship.  A risk manager and governance practitioner by background, Elise has 15 years of experience in the financial services sector and board experience as Secretary and Chief Credit Officer. She is currently an executive board member, a non-executive committee member and a board trustee.

Guest speakers:

  • Rashad Issa – Rashad is a Non-Executive Director, strategy specialist and an operational quality, governance & assurance expert. He guides the development and delivery of robust operational strategies for ambitious, growing businesses.
    Rashad is the Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) and the Quality & Business Improvement Lead at the Baltic Exchange. He is also an advisor for the diversity, equity and inclusion initiative with Project Management Institute (PMI).
  • Paul Hetherington – Following a highly successful career as Director, MD & CEO mostly in the manufacturing sector, PLCs, PE and privately owned businesses, Paul has transitioned into a portfolio life. He currently sits on several high-profile boards. These include: the Industry Development Advisory Board (IDAB) which is a statutory body advising ministers on investments in commercial schemes between £5million to £8billion; Chairing Business East Sussex (BES), replacing the Local Enterprise Partnership which did a similar role to IDAB at county level; and Senior NED at Building Research Establishment (BRE Group), a circa £100M organisation. Paul is also a Vistage Chair in SE England and advises a number of UK and overseas companies from circa £10M to £500M.
