The practical implications of the Carlyle case, cyber security and the skills that NEDs need to navigate Brexit will be just some of the topics under discussion at this year’s Channel Islands NED Forum.
Produced once again in partnership with Deloitte, the event will take place on 21 March 2018 from 9am to 1pm at the Royal Yacht Hotel in St Helier. The morning will bring together delegates and speakers from the Channel Islands and the UK to address some of the key issues facing NEDs now and in the near future.
The keynote address will ask, What are the required skills for exceptional NEDs in today’s and tomorrow’s increasingly uncertain environment of regulation and Brexit?
The topic of cyber security will be tackled by Adam McElroy, Deloitte UK Director for Identity & Access in Financial Services.
Gareth Bell, Partner at Collas Crill, and Ian Swan, Partner at Babbé, who represented the NEDs and Directors in the Carlyle case, will look at the role of the NED in the post-Carlyle era. The session will examine current legal issues, including the practical implications of the Carlyle case and other leading cases.
A panel session will explore what topics should be on the NED’s agenda in 2018. The panel will be comprised of Lisa Springate, Head of Technical, Jersey Finance (Moderator); Heather Bestwick, independent NED; Sarah Garrood, Partner, Maven Partners; and Peter Mills, Director, Optimus Group.
