Non-Executive Director programme

With the role of a Non-Executive Director (NED) becoming increasingly challenging, the PwC NED programme provides support to NEDs in their expanding role.

The role of a NED is increasingly challenging - with shareholder activism, executive pay, loss of trust, rapid technological advances and growing regulatory requirements all adding to the NED burden. Board roles are being played out in an enhanced media spotlight adding to both the pressures of the role and the reputational risk. At the same time, companies are having to look beyond traditional markets for growth which means that strategy is being set, and decisions being taken by the Board, in areas with which they may be less familiar.

Our FTSE 350 NED programme aims to support NEDs via a series of briefings, workshops and other one-off events to help address the need to keep up to date with Board issues and to assist directors to respond to the challenges they face. It combines the provision of expert knowledge with the invaluable sharing of experiences and ideas with peers.
