NEDonBoard is the officially approved body of non-executive directors and board members in the UK.

In practice, we connect, train and inform 20,000 business leaders during their career at Board level.

We provide a clear path for business leaders to the Board and non-exec responsibilities: our attendees rate our training very good or excellent. We provide a safe environment for experienced Board members to connect and improve Board best practices: the majority of our community have between 5 to 20 years Board experience. The quality of our monthly events is praised by national media. We ensure companies and organisation get access to our influential community: we publish on average 20 new Board role a week.

We serve non-executive directors and board members by promoting the highest standards of professional excellence, ethics and professional education for board members. We provide a professional network for NEDs, job board, news, events, professional development courses and insights to enhance our member’s non-executive director life. Our mission is not only to serve non-execs and Board members but ultimately to improve how businesses and organisations operate in the UK. 

NEDonBoard’s mission is articulating around three pillars:

Connection: organise online and offline events, advertise Board roles and brand business leaders;
Knowledge: serve all non-executive directors or business leaders seeking knowledge, professional development or inspiration;
Authority: set the standards for an effective governance and represent the voice of non-executive directors in the UK.

NEDonBoard mission for 2018 is to champion the NED role.

The Board is the highest authority in every institution. If you believe the wisdom of exceptional individuals and proper governance can improve organisation for the benefit of their stakeholders and, ultimately, for the benefit of the society as a whole, join us.
