The Leadership Institute partners with NextGen NED Network

We are delighted to announce that the London Business School Leadership Institute is now a partner organisation within the Next Generation NED network. 

The Next Generation NED Network is a select group of senior executives of leading businesses who are considering becoming nonexecutive directors (NEDs) in the private, public or not-for-profit sector, as well as existing NEDs who wish to keep up to speed with the latest issues affecting boardrooms today.

Initiated by Simmons & Simmons, the Network, which currently has over 1,000 members, brings together leading service providers with experienced directors from industry, finance and a wide range of other sectors, who are looking to develop their careers.

The Network is actively supported and run by seven world-class organisations:  Simmons & Simmons, KPMG, Barclays, Brunswick, Odgers Berndtson, Independent Audit and The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA).

Commenting on the arrangement, Randall Peterson, Academic Director of the Leadership Institute, said: “We share many areas of mutual interest with the NextGen NED Network and so are excited at the opportunities that our partnership will help to open up; we very much looking forward to working together.”

"The Institute is delighted to have been invited to join the partner organisations that support and contribute to the efforts of this Network. We're especially excited at how this relationship will support our outreach, thought leadership, and research aspirations on the topic of board effectiveness.

We also feel confident the partnership will inform the work we continue to do in this area in our collaborations with the Centre for Corporate Governance, Degree Programmes and Career Centre, Student Clubs and Executive Education." said Vyla L. Rollins, Executive Director of the Leadership Institute. 

The Leadership Institute is a centre of excellence whose vision is to 'have a profound impact on the world through supporting the generation and application of path-breaking research and thought leadership on topics relating to leadership and leading in the 21st Century.'
