We would like to invite you to the first WACL NED lunch of the 2020/21 year.

We plan to start the year of the important topic of  “How to successfully secure a NED role in the new world” and held on Tuesday 29 of September, 12:15 until 13:30 via Zoom and will be held as a video conference.

Whether you are seeking your first NED or trustee role or adding a new role to your portfolio this will be an insightful and valuable session for you to join. Spaces are limited ( even by video conference), so please let me know at Francesca@ecsery.com if you would like to attend so that we can send you the dial in details

  • Most NED searches are led by a small number of board practices in search firms.
  • However in the new world the search process has changed. 
  • Coffee catch ups are now virtual coffees . 
  • Entire searches have been conducted online without the chemistry meetings and relationship building where WACLers can excel. 
  • Board searches are still progressing but in a new and challenging world.

We are delighted that our speaker to help you navigate the new world will be the brilliant Moira Benigson from MBS
Moira is widely recognised as one of the most successful and respected search consultants for board roles - executives and non executives.
She has personally overseen over a thousand searches including many high profile appointments.
Moira’s talent lies in her unparalleled knowledge, exceptional grasp of the sector, vast experience, intuitive ability and keen judgement. She is a passionate advocate for diversity.
Moira founded the MBS group over 25 years ago and remains personally and passionately involved in all aspects of the business.

Moira will share her insights and expertise and then frankly answer your questions. The session will be led by our own WACL member Roisin Donnelly, Non Executive Director of Holland & Barrett and Bourne Leisure and a former Non Executive Director of Just Eat.  We would welcome questions from our attendees in advance and we will be using Zoom to broadcast to our members.  We would remind everyone that this is a Chatham House rules event, and all discussion will be conducted in strictest confidence and is non-reportable.

This will be a really great session and help you successfully achieve your goals.
Please join us.

The event will be held on Tuesday 29 of September, 12:15 till 13:30  via Zoom and will be held as a video conference. RSVP to francesca@ecsery.com
