Non-Executive Directorship

As a member of the Invest Northern Ireland service provider database register Adrian can be employed by a company to focus on ‘Capability Development’ within business. Capability Development schemes operate on a basis of a grant to the company. Companies provide a short application form indicating the key business areas for which they are seeking support and can choose their own preferred Non-Executive Director, however on occasions INI may be asked to provide someone suitable if the business cannot source a suitable provider.

Funding amounts vary but can be as high as £40,000 over a 2 year period so this is a very beneficial area to explore for business growth.

The business gets a seasoned business professional on an NED basis to assist in ALL aspects of the business for up to 24 months on a funded period and longer if relationship is extended. The business may otherwise not be able to afford the services of this NED which would prevent it from reaching its full potential.

Adrian can advise / assist the company on setting company objectives which follow the SMART acronym. This is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound. Longer term objectives will also be set to form a 3-5 year plan to aid the strategic development of the business.

An experienced NED can aid management development through an internal mentoring process as well as identifying external training opportunities to ensure management have the skills to achieve the company objectives and understand the strategic goals.
