Warwick Alumni London: The Journey to the Board, Board Effectiveness & Networking
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 from 6:45 PM to 8:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED.
How do you get to be a successful board member?
How do you ensure your board is effective?
Thinking about being a board member can start early in a career because the skills and experience required in a board director can take a while to develop. It is also important to realise that being an effective board member is not the same as being a successful senior leader. This seminar will explore the characteristics of successful board and board members and how careers can be built to prepare you for life on the board.
This event is a must attend for both those who aspire to rise to board positions and those with current responsibility for board and organisational governance. It will also interest those who simply want to understand what drives big organisations in the public and private sectors.
6.45pm Tea and coffee
7.15pm Formal start
8.30pm Networking and drinks
The event will be led by Louise Redmond who had already had a successful career in industry and in management consulting at KPMG when she started her DL MBA at Warwick. Louise completed her MBA whilst at SmithKline Beecham and went on to play a major role in the merger to create GlaxoSmithKline plc.
Louise moved to be the Human Resources Director of the Bank of England to support the then new Governor in reforming the Bank. Most recently Louise has joined The Law Debenture Corporation plc a company formed in 1889 to run the newly formed Governance Services business; she now reviews board effectiveness for listed companies and advises on board and director development.
Please feel free to bring friends and colleagues.

When & Where
Warwick London Alumni Group
The London alumni group was formed in late 2009. We develop relationships amongst members and offer a balanced programme of business-oriented and social events for alumni and others with connections to Warwick and WBS.
The aim of the group is to build on the work of the the Alumni Relations Team to create a coherent identity for London based Warwick graduates. We seek to encourage graduate engagement by organising interesting and fun events and other initiatives so that they too may give something back that will benefit the wider Warwick graduate community in London.
