Non-Executive and Director CPD Programmes and Premium Networking

Since 2015 we have been delivering high quality CPD accredited Programmes and premium networking opportunities in London and Bristol. We provide expertly tailored sessions for a diverse cohort of Directors/Trustees of growing businesses, entrepreneurs and charities seeking Board development as well as aspiring and established Chairs and NEDs looking to build their skills, network and Board profile. The Programmes are certified for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) purposes by the CPD Certification Service.

Our format is simple but very effective. Following a free launch event, we bring together, over six early evening events, a group of highly regarded industry leaders alongside a panel of experts presenting to and debating with the programme delegates on key industry topics that are relevant to every Director and NED in today’s increasingly complex world of governance and regulation. Each session is topped and tailed with an opportunity to network and gain further insights from the experts in a relaxed environment. Watch a review of the 2017 Programme here.

The Spring 2019 Programmes launch in Bristol on February 26th, kindly hosted by Bristol Business School and in London on March 6th kindly hosted by ACCA Global at their offices at The Adelphi, where we will be taking an exclusive look at the report into the Value of an NED to SME companies based on research undertaken by the Bristol Business School.
