The roles and responsibilities of non-executive directors and executive board members are rapidly evolving which is why Board Agenda is focused on providing high quality, independent editorial to help board members deal with the increasingly complex challenges they face. Non-executive directors have the same legal duties and fiduciary responsibilities as other executives and it is more important than ever for directors to be prepared and informed. Board Agenda provides best practice guides, research and analysis on key issues such as regulation, auditing, reporting, remuneration, diversity and technology to help directors navigate the growing complexities of board practices and leadership.
You can also read shared experiences from other board directors such as a recent interview with Vanda Murray, who after five years as a non-executive director at Fenner plc, the Yorkshire-based FTSE 250 industrial manufacturer, was appointed as its chairman last year. Murray describes the role of the NED as “increasingly becoming a professional one, in terms of training as well as the need for commitment. It is increasingly demanding. You have duties as a director and as an individual. Your reputation is increasingly on the line.” She describes how those director and individual duties are magnified as a chairman.
