The Non-Executive Directors Handbook is an accessible and practical guide for NEDs, aspiring NEDs and their advisers to the increasingly significant role non-executives play in the independent oversight of organisations.

The Handbook guides the reader through the lifecycle of the non-executive, starting with pre-appointment and addressing along the way topics such as legal duties and liabilities, boardroom behaviour and dynamics and the role NEDs play on board committees.

Coverage also includes chapters on monitoring risk, director development, performance evaluation and stakeholder communications. The book provides a working tool for non-executives, with the commentary illustrated throughout by a range of case examples and checklists.

The new edition of the Handbook has been fully updated to reflect the most recent legislation and regulation including the UK Corporate Governance Code, guidance on Board Effectiveness, and developments in reporting by companies.
