Non-Executive Directors Programme

Your trusted resource for NED guidance and updates

NEDs play a vital role in the governance and success of businesses and other organisations. However, regulatory requirements and the pace of change make the role challenging. Media interest in executive pay, shareholder activism and governance issues now focus greater attention on this role.

At BDO, we provide resources, updates on key issues and reports relating to those in Non-Executive Director roles. Our hub focuses on the NED journey, the role of non-executive boards and audit committees, corporate strategy, corporate governance and technical and regulatory updates.

We aim to make our non-executive director network a valuable source of information and guidance for NEDs, which covers:

  • Expert roundtable discussions and webinars on topical issues, such as ESG, Cyber Security, board governance and regulatory reform
  • Opportunities to build your NED network
  • A dedicated hub where you can access reports, research, news, and timely updates on technical and legal developments
  • Co-sponsored events, updates and training with The Non-Executive Directors’ Association (NEDA)  
  • A quarterly NED News Bulletin which includes a roundup of the latest news, insights and thought leadership all in one email. You can sign up for our NED News Bulletin by clicking here.

In 2024, we are also sponsoring the annual Non-Executive Director, plc and AIM awards which recognise the achievements of Non-Executive Directors of both corporate businesses and the not-for-profit community.
