Preparing for a Non-Executive Directors Role

Today, this is not the case, with more and more companies now starting to appreciate the voice coming from the free-thinking independent director. This highly interactive programme will provide delegates an opportunity to explore the role, and ensure that they make a positive impact and contribution to the board.
