Recognising Non-Executive Directors who have made a real contribution

2015 Awards

The Non-Executive Director Awards recognise the achievements of Non-Executive Directors within the Business and Not-For-Profit/Public Sector communities. The Awards focus on how the advice and experience of Non-Executive Directors can transform organisations and help deliver long-term success and growth. Every year we receive hundreds of nominations from those who feel a board member has performed exceptionally well. We are living in an era where the importance of Non-Executives is growing, where their influence resonates across media, politics, company boardrooms and all aspects of corporate governance.
