The Rise of the Digital NED – Your Journey to the Boardroom

Tuesday, 2 July 2019 -

We were delighted to host our panel event: The Rise of the Digital NED – Your Journey to the Boardroom.

The Digital revolution is transforming the boardroom, and Non-Executive Directors can bring a much needed diversity of experience, age and gender. Women and technologists contribute valuable new perspectives, whilst gaining the strategic skills to drive their own careers forward.

This panel event showcased the stories of 3 inspirational female technology leaders who have successfully navigated the journey to the boardroom. We also heared a leading chairman and investor share his thoughts on why diversity matters at board level and why the D-NED is crucial to a company's success.

The event was designed for CxOs from a technology background who are considering their first non-executive role or seeking to add a new NED role to their portfolio. It provided you with insight into what the role involves and the best steps to take to become a NED yourself.

The event was facilitated by Nadine Thomson: Digital CxO & Advisor: News UK, Conde Nast, Vue Cinema. Non-Executive Board member: Host UK & Cinema for All.
