First Flight Non-Executive Directors is pleased to announce that our next one day Non-Executive Director Workshop will be held on Wednesday October 15th at The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, SW1

Our Non-Executive Director Workshops are aimed at potential Non-Executive Directors and NEDs who have just acquired their first role.  Attendees are likely to be successful business people, whom we believe have the ability to be excellent Non-Executive Directors and whom we know would like to gain a better understanding of the complexities of being an effective NED.  First Flight is committed to broadening the NED gene pool.

Our Workshop covers:

The legal responsibilities of Non-Executive Directors

  • The unique role a NED plays on the Board
  • What companies require of their NEDs
  • The contributions NEDs should make to Boards
  • More effective Boards and Board meetings
  • Culture and Ethics in the Boardroom
  • How to produce a Non-Executive Director CV
  • Your first NED role

There will also be plenty of opportunity to network with the speakers, guest experts and other attendees.

Some comments from our previous Workshops:

“Thoroughly enjoyable & productive day”

“Thank you so much to First Flight for the Workshop. As a new-in-post NED I found it very useful.”

“Being on the Remuneration Committee could be an opportunity rather than a headache as I thought”

“Now I understand what companies want in their NEDs”

“I now understand how to go about getting my 1st Non Exec role”

“I didn’t realise how complex/involved the (NED) role is, but I feel much better equipped now”

“A really good balance of speakers and topics – overall it was excellent!”

“It is clear that historically the entry to a NED role was very closed but it seems to be opening up”

“I now understand the need to construct a NED CV”

“Excellent overall – a very happy customer”


£500 + VAT (inclusive of coffee/tea throughout the day, lunch and wine at the end of the day)
