This has been an unprecedented time for all organisations. Some have flourished, most have struggled, and the expectations and help required from NXDs to support their Boards and add value to ensure long-term growth, sustainability and profitability have never been greater. This session will look at the effects of the crisis and the issues that NXDs will need to contend with going forward. We will explore issues likely to arise in many areas including the Remuneration and Audit Committees, Risk Assessment, and Strategic Growth plans.

About the Programme

In recent years Non-Executive Directors (NXDs) have become the subject of increased scrutiny and analysis leading to higher levels of responsibility and accountability, which in turn has required them to have more knowledge and experience. The global pandemic has added a level of complexity that has seen Boards grappling with unforeseen challenges on an unprecedented scale. This has forced many NXDs to face crisis situations while also searching out new opportunities as they try to survive.

The 2021 Programme will address these issues and help NXDs bring value to their Boards in these constantly changing and uncertain times. As usual, the programme is highly practical, led by experienced Chairs and NXDs, focusing on the key issues every NXD should be aware of. It also caters for those interested in all types and sizes of organisation: listed, private, entrepreneurial, SMEs, public sector and not-for-profit. Each session will again be interactive and include group activities and case studies addressing real events, together with plenary Q&A and discussion.

These sessions have been designed to allow time for interaction and active learning in each area. While each session has a main topic, the discussions and questions will be wide-ranging.
