1 Day course, Wednesday 28 March 2012, 9:00am to 4:30pm, University of the West of England, Bristol

This course is for aspiring, newly appointed and serving non-executive directors, governors or trustees and covers the legal and functional aspects of the role as well as effective strategies to secure Non-Executive positions.  In association with Bristol Business School, the course blends corporate governance for large and small companies with insights and strategies that inform best practice in the role itself. Importantly, the course also covers how to build a Non-Executive career.

Working with partners across law, accounting, education and directorship, we have developed a course that gives the right mix of experience and academic rigour to equip aspiring and newly serving Non-Executive Directors to obtain a Non-Executive, Governor or Trustee position and improve their effectiveness within it.
