Life on Boards: Higher Education


We are delighted to announce a new series of panel discussions for Members this Autumn, kindly hosted by Denise Jagger at Eversheds Sutherland LLP's offices in the City and produced by Sally Davies, Alison Maitland and Susan Vinnicombe CBE.

The aim of the series is twofold: to help inform members who might be interested to apply for board positions in different sectors and, secondly, to inform members and to have a lively discussion around the current issues being debated on boards.  What is on the agenda and what are the 'hot topics'?  The panel will talk about their experiences in terms of the appointment process, their particular role, their responsibilities and liabilities and the issue they are involved with.

This first event will focus on Higher Education.  Professor Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor of Liverpool University will open with an overview to contextualise how Council fits into the overall governance of a university, before opening up to our panel.

Speakers include Julie Goldstein, University of Bristol, Denise Jagger, University of York and Jane Kelly, Brunel University London.
The evening will be moderated by IWF UK Board Member, business author and journalist, Alison Maitland.

There are a number of IWF UK members who sit on various university councils and are involved with HE, and we are keen to have a good and lively discussion, so please come along and contribute!

Cost: £20 members, £25 guests

Drinks and canapes will be served.

LAST DATE FOR CANCELLATIONS: MON 25 SEPTEMBER 2017
