The Contemporary NED - May 2017


Date: 10 May 2017

Venue: London

'The Contemporary NED'

in association with Smith & Williamson and supported by Equity Chair

Being a contemporary NED means keeping up with innovation and change, considering both the threats and opportunities posed by a dynamic business environment.  Nowhere is this more important than in the fast-moving technological and digital world, where many established businesses are being threatened by digital intrusion or out-manoeuvred by a raft of innovative, tech-enabled newcomers.

This year’s event will focus on NEDs in the new Scale-up economy and the role of the NED in business strategy implementation.

Our fascinating range of speakers will seek to answer the following questions:

  • How can NEDs make a difference in a Scale-up business? (views from the Scale-up Institute and a board member in the front line)
  • Are NEDs actually helping the executive team to shape strategy or are they a hindrance? (insight from a strategist NED)
  • What are the current issues that NEDs and boards are facing? (war stories from an experienced chair)
