NED Workshop

“An insider’s view from the outside”

The Risk Management challenges for Non-Executive Directors

Many Non-Executive Directors have learned the hard way that risk management at their companies has been lacking or ineffective.

This new workshop is a highly interactive way for NEDs to develop their risk management skills. It uses experiences drawn from real life situations at first hand to allow those attending to work through how they can provide effective challenge and oversight. The workshop enables frank and open discussion in a confidential environment.

The workshop is especially relevant to prospective or newly appointed NEDs and has already received highly positive feedback.

“A NED’s assessment simply looking over the shoulder of the executive team and offering an occasional word of wisdom or direction is not sufficient. Non-executive board directors today need to be activist in their approach to ensuring that the organisations they serve do not simply survive but thrive, even in economically difficult conditions. The boards on which they serve should demand no less of them than that”
