Directors Dinner Programme 2017

This programme of dinners features an event for each board member of a quoted company, where the topics and issues discussed are focused on your specific role.
Directors Dinner Programme 2017

Our Directors Dinners bring together small and mid-size quoted company directors to hear from leading directors of larger companies, subject matter experts and / or industry leaders about their roles and how they have added shareholder value. Each dinner discussion focuses on the part played by specific roles on a Board (both executive and non-executive). The topics covered will provide you with plenty of insights on the key issues board members of quoted companies face, as well as the opportunity to share experiences with your peers who face similar issues. 

How it works:

The evening begins at 6:30pm with a welcome drink. During dinner, you will hear from our speakers and then have the opportunity to join in the discussion around the specific topic of the event. The dinner will conclude at 9:30pm.

Dress Code for the evening is business attire.

Where: 

All the dinners will be taking place in a restaurant in the City.

Cost:

This event is free to Quoted Companies Alliance members and £375 + VAT for non-members.
