Securing an NED role is as much about how well you can sell yourself as it is about your abilities.

For every person offered an NED role, there were likely 6 better candidates that never even secured an interview. This round table event will discuss the self-marketing strategies that successful NEDs and portfolio career professionals adopt, including personal branding, value proposition development, CV writing, LinkedIn and thought leadership.

The session is aimed at aspiring NEDs, existing NEDs and fully fledged portfolio career professionals.

Attendees will come away with some clear actionable points to define their professional ‘angle’ for NED roles, sell themselves more effectively, and create a suite of leading-edge self-marketing collateral that’s fit for purpose in the 2022 market. We’ll delve into the science of a great NED CV, the structure of a high-performing LinkedIn profile and the dark art of thought leadership.
