Terms & Conditions

Refunds for all our individual events are available if notice is given three business days prior by email or telephone, or one month prior to first session of our programmes.

Cancellations on the same business day will not generally be eligible for a refund or transfer, however you may substitute someone to come in your place. In the case of exceptional circumstances let us know and we will consider a refund/transfer.

Join our book club series, designed for experienced non-executives, to discuss wide-ranging topics with relevance to business and board directors today. Our (usually) non-fiction series covers macro socio-economic issues that relate to the context businesses operate in, what impact they have and the responsibilities of organisations in today’s world.

Led by Shefaly Yogendra, a highly experienced portfolio NED herself, this series of three discussions will be an opportunity to consider the bigger issues facing today’s boards and businesses. In a small group of max. 15 members, you will come together across three sessions to develop your understanding of ideas raised in the books proposed.

The books selected for this book club series are:

First Session: Wednesday 21st February, 6pm to 7pm

The World for Sale: Money, Power and the Traders Who Barter the Earth’s Resources, by Javier Blas and Jack Farchy

Since 2024 is not letting up on supply chains, this book remains relevant for directors of both operating and investment companies to understand the lay of the land deeper. It may also shape stakeholder engagement thinking. 

Second Session: Thursday 25th April, 6pm to 7pm

Why They Do It: Inside the Mind of the White-Collar Criminal, by Eugene Soltes

Discussion on approaches to misconduct and ideas on how to spot it and how to challenge it.

Third Session: Thursday 23rd May, 6pm to 7pm

The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations, by Daniel Yergin

A reality check for net zero transition. Discussion on the many geopolitical challenges shaping the broad context in which we are doing business.

Participants should come to each session having read the book. The price above is for all 3 sessions which take place on the above dates and times (books not included).
