About the course

Are you thinking of taking your career to another level and becoming a Non-Executive Director? Do you want to learn how to succeed in the role from an experienced, successful NED with a passion for knowledge sharing?

As forward-looking boards seek improved external context, objective challenge and skills infusion, the role of the Non-executive director has never been more important. Salford Professional Development are now offering this intensive, practical ‘Becoming a Non-Executive Director (NED) - Preparation programme’, that is designed to differentiate NED delegates from their peer group and help launch them into a portfolio career. The highly interactive course combines theoretical, legislative and practical activities to build a comprehensive appreciation of the opportunities and risks associated with the exciting NED role. Drawing extensively on real life case studies, role play exercises and structured discussions, delegates will build a clear understanding of what’s needed to successfully secure a NED position and add value in the role.

  • Success in the NED role, including key differences from being an executive director.
  • The legal framework, formal duties and liabilities of a NED.
  • People skills for ensuring effectiveness in the boardroom and beyond.
