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.

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 who will be on hand to offer expert guidance.

Incorporated into the programme at no additional cost is an evening drinks reception and dinner with a high profile, portfolio NED guest speaker. This is a fantastic opportunity to network amongst your peers.
