Workshop Overview

Choosing to become a non-executive director (NED) could be prompted by a lifestyle change or a desire to use skills and knowledge gained in an executive environment. This could be fuelled by an ambition to do something worthy in the third sector or to support enterprising organisations. Or it could be the result of wanting to become involved in an organisation without taking on an executive role.

Whatever the rationale, it is essential to know how to access such roles – and how to make yourself the most desirable candidate in a marketplace where multiple applicants may be attempting to secure a prime role.

This workshop will also explore the risks and responsibilities of the NED role, with recommendations on best practice for assessing contracts in an increasingly litigious environment.

What former attendees have to say about CPD workshops.

“great opportunity to network with professionals outside of the services” (Ex-Army Major who left the service a year ago)
“fantastic way to demonstrate a commitment and investment in my own professional development” (Officer from RN, preparing for transition)
“ I really enjoyed the interactive nature of the content and discussions and the opportunity to play out scenarios in a civilian work context” (RN Commander in the process of transition)


This workshop is now fully booked.
