"I found the course very helpful, as I wanted to understand in detail what a NED role entailed. I felt that I gained enough information not only to decide if this was the sort of role that I would be interested in, but also to be able to function in such a role. The guidance on seeking appointments was an added bonus. It was also an interesting day with a varied group of delegates and I would happily recommend it."

Non Executive Chairman

Flexible, Permanent


As Portfolio Search we work within the portfolios of a number of Private Equity and Venture Capital organisations & funds.

You will have experience in the sector, bringing credibility and prior experience of growing a software based business.
