Obtaining an non-executive directorship can be a valuable objective in furthering your career -- either as a stepping stone to an executive role on your main board or in building a portfolio of activities based on your expertise, experience and network.
The NED Directors Handbook will help you achieve this goal. It explains how to develop a plan to get yourself noticed, how to exercise due diligence and how to decide whether a particular opportunity is right for you.
In this practical guide you find:
The role, responsibilities and risks of being a director
How to develop a plan to get noticed and attract your first offer
How to exercise due diligence and decide whether the opportunity is right for you
What is involved in the transition to a director role
"This book is an invaluable tool for new directors and for anyone in management or aspiring to be so. It is a concentrated 'one stop shop' of theories, tools and frameworks that will help any individual or organisation. A great aide memoire written in such a way that cuts out unnecessary text and has clear explanations and diagrams." - Paula Fowler, Managing Partner, Fisher Jones Greenwood, solicitors
"This is a practical, no-nonsense guide for both new directors and for those who have been directors for some time. It explains both the responsibilities of directors and how these responsibilities can be approached. The book is well laid out and easy to follow. A particularly useful section is the transition from manager to director - which many people find particularly difficult." - Ann Bentley, Chairman of the Global Board, Rider Levett Bucknall
"We do need to reassure/inspire individuals to become NEDs and this book does just that. A reliable read that de-mystifies the role." - Jerry Blackett, Chief Executive, Birmingham Chamber of Commerce
