You will come away from this evening with a clear idea about your functions and powers as a non-executive-director – now and into the future and specifically:
- Who, if anyone, has the power to direct you and about what
- Which decisions you are empowered to make
- Who you are accountable to for those decisions
- Which decisions you have delegated, and to whom
- Whether your organisation is performing well – and how do you know
- If you were unsure about any of these, what would you do?
