About the course
What do Private Equity Investors look for in a potential NXD? How do you get it right when looking for a NXD role?
Much has been written about the fact that technology can help make society more resilient in the face of threats such as the current pandemic. This creates investment opportunities for Private Equity, which will require a strong Board and senior management team to drive value towards a successful exit. NXDs have a crucial role to play in achieving this as they help to guide Executives in developing strategy and building appropriate infrastructure to achieve business goals.
So, what are the skills and experience that Private Equity will look for in making NXD appointments to their investee company boards, and how can individuals ensure they are able to secure an appropriate role in this exciting, challenging and rewarding sector? This session will be with a panel of Private Equity Investors and Head Hunter specialising in NXD and Chair appointments. They will discuss how potential NXDs should position themselves for these roles and what attributes are of most interest to Private Equity investors.
There will be case studies to examine what makes a good NXD in particular challenging situations with small group and plenary discussions. The session will also cover the Due Diligence review that potential NXDs should undertake to ensure a good and lasting fit on both sides, as well as the process of appointment and how to ensure a successful outcome.
About the Programme
In recent years Non-Executive Directors (NXDs) have become the subject of increased scrutiny and analysis leading to higher levels of responsibility and accountability, which in turn has required them to have more knowledge and experience. The global pandemic has added a level of complexity that has seen Boards grappling with unforeseen challenges on an unprecedented scale. This has forced many NXDs to face crisis situations while also searching out new opportunities as they try to survive.
The 2021 Programme will address these issues and help NXDs bring value to their Boards in these constantly changing and uncertain times. As usual, the programme is highly practical, led by experienced Chairs and NXDs, focusing on the key issues every NXD should be aware of. It also caters for those interested in all types and sizes of organisation: listed, private, entrepreneurial, SMEs, public sector and not-for-profit. Each session will again be interactive and include group activities and case studies addressing real events, together with plenary Q&A and discussion.
These sessions have been designed to allow time for interaction and active learning in each area. While each session has a main topic, the discussions and questions will be wide-ranging.
