Reviews

Baroness Hogg, Chairman of the 3I Group Plc quotes the best non-executive directors as possessing ‘energy and engagement, knowledge, judgement and influencing skills’. She adds, ‘the commitment of non-executives has never been greater, something which continues to make the role so professionally rewarding. The speed of change in the regulatory environment makes this second edition a welcome update to what has become a classic. It will undoubtedly prove as useful as the first’.
