On 9th February 2022, First Flight were delighted to be part of a panel of experts to discuss Life in the Boardroom - Who would want to be an NED?  The webinar hosted by the London Stock Exchange Group sparked much interest attracting over 600 attendees.

Life in the Boardroom is a comprehensive Chair and Non-Executive Director report containing insights on board practices, time commitments, pay and other board issues.

Our Senior Consultant, Naomi Scott-Mackie, alongside Paul Norris, CEO at MM&K, Kieran Monyihan, Managing Partner - Board Excellence and Fiona Hathorn, Founder & CEO -Women on Boards discussed the increasingly demanding and evolving role of NEDs plus major boardroom issues such as diversity and inclusion.  The findings came from an extensive MM&K survey, produced bi-annually, which recently identified a growing concern about increased regulation and governance changes placed upon NEDs; a burden not matched by increases in remuneration. These risks could result in negatively impacting the motivation to become a NED and the quality of boards may subsequently diminish.

We wanted to share with you a recording of the webinar:
