As the end of 2019 approaches, this is a time to reflect on what NEDonBoard has accomplished with its members and the community of NEDs and board members.
NEDonBoard has enriched its platform with more exclusive content for its members. The NEDonBoard platform is unique in that it is truly independent and is made by board members for board members.
In 2019, we brought to our community content on the responsibilities of the Audit Committee and the Remuneration Committee and on the Wates Corporate Governance Principles for Large Private Companies. Over the year, we have also added exclusive content on highly topical corporate governance themes including stakeholder engagement, climate change and ESG more broadly as well as digital transformation.
We have uploaded more than one thousand NED roles on our platform for the benefit of our members! In addition to our online jobs board, our events have created hundreds of connections and NED opportunities to those attending. NEDonBoard events continue to attract a broad pool of talents and are an excellent forum to meet with companies looking to appoint board advisers and non-executive directors and board level peers.
Building on the success of our match-making events, we will be proposing even more of those in 2020, broadening the scope of company types in the process! NEDonBoard is the preferred partner for organisations looking to attract diverse and high calibre professionals.
NEDonBoard takes the opportunity to thank its speakers, panel chairs and contributors for sharing their experiences with the community of NEDs and board members and promoting board best practices®.
We thank our partners for supporting us in equipping boards with principles, knowledge and skills that recognise commercial success and value creation are underpinned by strong corporate social responsibility, accountability and sustainability.
We thank our members for their commitment to their NED career and engagement for strong, modern and effective boards. The community has again grown tremendously, and it is a pleasure to receive your e-mails and meet you in person at our events.
We thank the NEDonBoard ambassadors and advisory board members and obviously our fantastic staff!
NEDonBoard wishes you a joyous holiday season and a most prosperous and healthy New Year. We very much look forward to seeing you in 2020!
