“Heather White and I first met at the FT NED Club in 2015 when Heather was on a panel about the importance of networking in a NED search. Subsequently, Heather was instrumental in helping me successfully address the Catch 22 situation of: “You have a great executive experience, good that you want to become a NED, what is your NED experience?”. Recently, I invited Heather to present a talk at XTEND on “5 to 10 things you must do to find a NED role”. As I expected, Heather was very candid in laying out the current state of play in the NED sphere and very honest about what needs to be done to increase chances of landing a NED role”
