Overview

The Effective Non-Executive Director Programme is an intensive two-day course designed for existing non-executive directors who wish to further develop their skills or for people who have just taken on their first non-executive position and are keen to prepare themselves for a non-executive career.

This is a practical, detailed and highly interactive course with recognised speakers and thought-leaders who will help you with improving board effectiveness and increasing your contribution to the board.

Attendance can be considered as 14 CPD hours of structured learning.
