Becoming an effective non-executive in the modern-day boardroom is not an easy feat. In the same manner, pursuing the best practices in terms of corporate governance is not something that everybody will be able to achieve. In the UK, the corporate scene is fast becoming a setting for a number of cases of activism. This is why it is important for every progressive non-executive to understand the importance of boards taking the initiative in terms of better shareholder engagement. They also need to ensure preparedness in the event that activists do strike.
It is because of all these great contributions that non-executives are bringing to the table that Boudicca Proxy Consultants reviews is honoured to be among those who greatly supports these awards. After all, at the core of these recognitions is giving a nod towards the strengths of the non-executive directors and the crucial roles that they now play in the corporate world.

Its inception was initiated by Peel Hunt where the goal is to acknowledge the numerous achievements and contributions that non-executive directors are contributing to the day to day growth and success of businesses, as well as of non-profit organisations that are found across the UK. A panel of judges is responsible for deciding who the winners are. They are made up of members from various sectors and is chaired by the Chairman of BAE Systems, Sir Roger Carr. This year, the award is presented at a ceremony in Mayfair’s Claridge Hotel with the who’s who from the corporate world in attendance.
