Webinar: 8.30am to 9.30am BST, Thursday 7 July 2022

Resilience First is delighted to convene a webinar, in partnership with Pool Re, on empowering, equipping and educating Non-Executive Directors on ways to drive the resilience of the organisations they are responsible for.

Chaired by Simon Collins, Chair, Resilience First, the panel discussion will be led by experts from Pool Re, Control Risks, PA Consulting and Women on Boards UK, who have also co-authored chapters on Diversity and Inclusion, ESG, Terrorism and Cyber Resilience which will feature in a new extended version of Resilience First's NEDs Guide to Operational Resilience, which will be launched at the webinar.

In today's world of deep uncertainties and complex interdependencies, it is important that Non-Executive Directors can contribute fully to the resilience of their organisations by understanding what specific measures are being undertaken to ensure preparedness, long-term resilience, and sustainability. This is equally true for public-, private- and voluntary-sector organisations.

At this webinar, NEDs will be able to channel their own insights and experiences on resilience as well as learn about new ways to drive resilience.
