FTSE NED Breakfast 

This series of events is designed for FTSE NEDs and Private Sector NEDs who are working, or have worked, at Senior Executive level in FTSE or FTSE-equivalent organisations.  

We are delighted that a number of leading head hunters, including Spencer Stuart, Norman Broadbent, Zygos Partnership, Warren Partners, Korn Ferry, Odgers Berndtson, Miles Partnership, MWM Consulting, Sapphire Partners, Heidrick and Struggles and Berwick Partners have offered to support and attend these events in the past.

These breakfast boardroom conversations are a great way for you to listen to stories of top NEDs, understand the issues they have faced and to make high level connections with other individuals and top level Head Hunters and Consultants who work in the NED space.

To get a feel for these events click on one of these two links to see the top tips from two of our previous NED speakers, Jan Babiak and Paul Drechsler CBE

For this Breakfast we have two speakers; Rachel Rhodes and Emma Bendon.
