Event will shine spotlight on role of non-executive directors


Nine speakers have been confirmed for BusinessCloud’s latest event on the role of the non-executive director – or NED for short.

Together with Tech Manchester, BusinessCloud will be explaining what a NED does, how to become one, and what difference a non-executive director can make to a business.

It will hear first-hand from NEDs and companies who have witnessed the difference they’ve made – both good and bad.

BusinessCloud’s executive editor said Chris Maguire said: “I wrote a blog on NEDs earlier this year and it had such an amazing response we decided to join forces with Tech Manchester to stage an event that demystifies the role and the difference they can make to a business?”

The event – entitled ‘How to become the ultimate NED’ – takes place at UKFast Campus, in Manchester, on November 15th.

It’s free to attend but spaces are limited.
