This course looks at the role of the board member; whether an executive or a non-executive director; in a UK Listed company. It considers board structure and practice and looks at the specific duties and liabilities associated with being a director. It discusses why corporate governance is important and why it should be so much more than a simple box ticking exercise. It sets out the key tasks associated with being a board member as well as the personal attributes and skills needed to carry out the role effectively. Although the course focuses on UK listed companies; the principles are equally applicable to other legal entities on a proportionate basis.
The FT Board Director Programme has built a very exclusive community of experienced and highly effective non-executive directors and trustees.
Graduates of the FT Non-Executive Director Diploma and participants to our courses are eligible to be part of the FT Non-Executive Director Club*.
