Most organizations realize the essential role played by the independent directors ever since the dot.com era and the collapse of several famous companies. Effective boards require the right combination of executive and Non-Executive Directors (“NED”) to pursue all stakeholders interests. The NEDs in a board will not be able to exercise their duties effectively, unless they are independent from the executive and ensure they provide unbiased business judgment.

Envisia-Boards of Elite invites you to its second event tackling Board of Directors’ contemporary topics: ENVISIA’s Round Table: Independence vs Alignment: “How independent is the Independent Board Director?” We will debate along prestigious business guests, the challenges of the modern boards in connection with the independence of its members.

Our Keynote Speaker, Prof. Andrew Kakabadse, Chairman Directors’ Forum Henley Business School, Emeritus Professor Cranfield School Of Management, will be emphasizing the importance of the professionalization of the role of the board director in connection with the launch of The First Postgraduate Qualification Programme for practicing board members, with academic accreditation recognized within the European Union.
