The rising need for highly skilled NED’s as Africa is growing…
As businesses are growing and more and more companies are expanding into Africa the need for Non-Executive Directors (NED) with Africa experience is growing. A Non-Executive Directors, also known as an External Director or Outside Director, is a board member without responsibilities for daily management or operations of the company or organisation. Their main responsibility is to challenge the strategic direction and performance of an organisation and its team. Since NEDs do not hold C-level or managerial positions, they are thought to understand the interests of the company with greater objectivity than the executive directors, who may have a conflict of interest between management and other stakeholders.
