Course description

IoD East of England CPD – Double Session

This ‘double session’ will bring together two workshops ‘The Top 5 things Every Director Should Know’ and 'Practical Tips for Becoming a NED', and will run back to back on the same morning.

The Top 5 Things Every Director Should Know

This practical session will explore the top five things every director must know, looking at the following questions:

  • Who is a director?
  • What do directors do?
  • What authority does a board have?
  • What personal liabilities do directors have?
  • What is a conflict of interest?

By the time you have completed the session, you will be able to:

  • Distinguish the role of a director from those of the other actors involved in the management and oversight of an organisation.
  • Understand the link between a director’s duty towards the company and their potential personal liability as directors.

Practical Tips for Becoming a NED

Choosing to become a non-executive director (NED) could be prompted by a lifestyle change or a desire to use skills and knowledge gained in an executive environment. This could be fuelled by an ambition to do something worthy in the third sector or to support enterprising organisations. Or it could be the result of wanting to become involved in an organisation without taking on an executive role.

Whatever the rationale, it is essential to know how to access such roles – and how to make yourself the most desirable candidate in a marketplace where multiple applicants may be attempting to secure a prime role. This workshop will also explore the risks and responsibilities of the NED role, with recommendations on best practice for assessing contracts in an increasingly litigious environment.
