How to develop an effective NED portfolio

Thu 10th Nov 2022 - 10:00am

A non-executive director is expected to bring additional skills, experience and an external, rigorous  perspective to assist and, where necessary, challenge the board. Non-executive directors are not involved in the daily management, nor in the internal running of the company.
