The demand for Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) continues to rise across all sectors as boards seek to drive growth and greater diversity; to develop a winning strategy and to implement good corporate governance. It is widely recognised that the perspective, wisdom and know-how of experienced NEDs within the boardroom can drive C-Suite performance and improve the performance and sustainability of organisations.

It is recognised that members of the C-Suite can benefit from the alternative perspective and personal development opportunities that an NED role can bring. With this in mind Winmark worked with a global FTSE 250 to create a two page “NED Policy for the Management Board”. You can find a link to the policy below:
How to become an NED, in partnership with the FT:
Winmark has also partnered with the FT to produce a popular best practice guide on how to become an NED. This guide looks at diversity, what the best NEDs look like, where and when to start, making the transition, your application and CV, trustees and effective board member behaviour.
