Our final Executive Roundtable this year will explore what levers non-executive board members have available to pro-actively drive performance when they no longer have executive powers. The roundtable will be co-hosted by Simon Bowen, who is the Chair of Devonport Royal Dockyards and a NED at Rolls-Royce Submarines. Simon was recently appointed as the Nuclear Industry Advisor to the prime minister tasked with setting up a news body to drive the nuclear new build programme. He is now transitioning from leading it to being the interim Chair which will be a challenging change to manage.

To set the scene for this peer-to-peer confidential roundtable, Simon will reflect on his own experience and invite us all to reflect and join this enquiry. This roundtable is primarily aimed at leaders in our network that sit on boards, are looking for board positions or currently engage with boards in their executive accountability. Please let us know if you would like a seat at our virtual table taking place on Tuesday 13 December at 16:00-17:30 GMT.
