The Financial Times NED Club is holding a half day workshop, ‘So You Want to be a NED?’, in Singapore on 21 March 2017.  Register for the event here.

The workshop is a fantastic insight into the boardroom and demonstrates the fundamental differences between executive and non-executive board roles. Learning includes boardroom behaviour, an introduction to the audit committee and corporate governance. Participants will also hear from a partner of an executive search firm about getting a first NED role and the day will finish with a personal view of life as a NED from Aliza Knox, a highly experienced non-executive director.
