About the course
This comprehensive programme is designed to equip you with practical strategies to build your network, raise your profile to secure an appointment, and add value in the boardroom.
As more individuals choose ‘portfolio careers’ and demand for non-executive directors continues to rise within multiple sectors including third sector organisations and private companies, it has never been more important to understand the critical requirements and appropriate skill set of a non-executive director.
Gain practical advice from an experienced portfolio non-executive director and participate in interactive case studies. Discover the latest interview tips from top industry head-hunters and put your questions to guest speakers from the IoD Information Advisory Service who will be on hand to offer expert guidance.
Incorporated into the programme at no extra cost is an evening drinks reception and a three course dinner at our recently refurbished Restaurant with a high profile, portfolio NED guest speaker. This is a fantastic opportunity to network amongst your peers.
