Description

The Non-executive Directors (NXD) programme returns for 2019 to give participants a practical understanding of the key issues every NXD should be aware of. The University of Edinburgh Business School and FWB Park Brown are delighted to launch the Non-Executive Director (NXD) Programme - back for a third year amid popular demand and extended this year to cover some of the faster growth areas in technology where there will be increasing opportunities for NXDs.

Led by experienced Chairs and NXDs, the Programme focuses on key issues every NXD should be aware of and caters for those with interests in all types and sizes of organisations - listed, private, entrepreneurial, SMEs, public sector and not-for-profit.
