Designed by BCKR for individual lawyers, law firms and in-house legal departments, this is an interactive online group course of five sessions of 1.5 hours each. It addresses how to develop the skills and attributes you need either to make a successful transition into a portfolio career or simply to take up a non-executive director role during your legal career.
Working with a maximum of 10 participants per group, the course is engaging and fast paced. In-between session work (and ideally also engagement with the other participants) will ensure you gain maximum benefit.
Hear recent attendee, Richard Macklin’s thoughts on the NED skills course.
This online course allows you to participate without the need for travel. It uses the latest online technology. Full instructions will be given to facilitate easy access. You will receive PowerPoint slides and a recording of each session. Each session is available to download for one month after the original session. Once downloaded, however, you can keep and review the content, at your leisure, as often as you like.
This course is tailor-made to meet the demands of lawyers seeking non-executive roles, whether as a trustee or director, and whether as a single role or to start a career change.
It aims to maximise your chances of success – whatever your plans.
This BCKR course is led by Niall Foster, a highly experienced professional skills trainer, well versed in the ways of on-line group work. See www.linkedin.com/in/niallfoster. At each session, Niall will be joined by BCKR directors to add their own perspectives as former lawyers.
