Good Governance Forum

23rd November 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Members only.

Our Good Governance Forum in July will tackle the following question: What can listed companies learn from other sectors on the role of the NED?

The focus of the Good Governance Forum in 2016 is on the implications for boards, and in particular on the role of the NED. The UK’s current governance system places considerable reliance on non-executive directors (NEDs). This has increased over the last few years, as the government’s response to scandals has been to give more responsibilities to NEDs and to increase the burden of compliance on boards. However, this is contrasted with increasing concerns of whether NEDs can fulfil this onerous role within current structures. There is a sense that the pendulum has swung too far towards independence, compliance and risk aversion. And that it may need to swing back towards encouraging entrepreneurial leadership.
