FTSE NED Breakfast 26th June 2019
This series of events is designed for FTSE NEDs and women 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, Russell Reynolds, Warren Partners, Korn Ferry, Odgers Berndtson, Miles Partnership, MWM Consulting, Sapphire Partners, Heidrick and Struggles, EquityChair, Berwick Partners, and First Flight 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 senior women 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.
