Webinar: 1 July 2021, 3pm to 4pm

It is important that NEDs contribute fully to the resilience of their organisations and understand what specific measures are necessary to ensure preparedness, long-term resilience, stewardship and sustainability. This is equally true for public-, private- and voluntary-sector organisations.

The webinar, introducing a guide on operational resilience, aims to provide practice notes and advisory tips in concise and user-friendly language, with highlights on principles for NEDs as well as the practical challenges to make and the skills to deploy when working with other board members and management.

Whether a NED or an adviser to senior managers in the C-suite, this event will help executives identify the key issues to raise and discuss. Attendees at the webinar will receive a free copy of the guide.

Chair: Simon Collins, Chair, Resilience First.


Sir Ian Andrews CBE TD, Vice-Chair of the National Preparedness Commission and former Non-executive Director of NHS Digital.

Ed Butler CBE DSO, Chief Resilience Officer, Pool Re

Karen Gutierrez, Senior Adviser, Operational Risk and Resilience, Prudential Regulation Authority.
