Your route to becoming a Non-Executive Director


EMR is delighted to invite you to our third breakfast event on 1 October 2019 for senior marketing, digital and communications professionals interested in developing their career as a Non-Executive Director. Together with our partner Pimp My Cause, we are hosting a 90 minute breakfast session featuring experienced NED's and charities in need of marketing board members.

Volunteering as a charity trustee can provide a firm basis for professional NED opportunities and some attendees from our prior events have already secured charity board placements. A productive networking session will follow where you will have the chance to speak with the panel and other charities, and EMR will be on-hand for careers discussions.

"EMR's NED event was an invaluable introduction to becoming a Non-Executive Director. As someone who is considering becoming a NED in their next career step, it provided clarity on the role and the best path to follow.”

The expert panel includes:

Steve Walker, Founder of Two-Sides, former CMO of Sony Mobile, Chair of the Pimp My Cause advisory board and Trustee at Renewable World

Sarah Speake, Founder of Speake Up Consulting, former CMO of Truphone, former Trustee at Missing People and The Marketing Society and NED at Talking Talent

Celia Pronto, Chief Customer Officer at Casual Dining Group, Trustee at Yes to Life and NED at South East Water

Richard Morris, Founder of TheGivingMachine, a charity currently seeking a marketing oriented trustee
