Maximise your chances of building a fulfilling portfolio of Non-Executive Directorships by avoiding The 7 Deadly Sins of Nascent Neds using The Fenton Model™.

The 7 Deadly Sins of Nascent NEDs


"I work extensively with NEDs and have come up with the following common seven deadly sins:

  1. Frightening the CEO and/or other directors
  2. Forgetting to sell themselves effectively at interview
  3. Asserting, rather than demonstrating, competence
  4. Needing to be an NED, rather than wanting to be one
  5. No marketing plan to build the portfolio
  6. Ignoring their unique experiences as the best differentiator
  7. Failing to display high emotional intelligence

Learn how to avoid these at my One Day Workshop:

You will -

  • Be a leader with significant career achievements
  • Have demonstrable qualities that will be assets in an NED role
  • Be actively seeking NED roles.

You will come away with -

  • Tools to set and find portfolio targets that are likely to be met
  • A plan to meet market needs with a personal proposition
  • A strategy to win at interview against competing NEDs"
