The role of director is vast, complex and ever-changing. Let this handbook be your guide to everything you need to know about being a director. Both highly accessible and practical, it will be a great resource for directors at any stage of their career, from aspiring directors to experienced ones, as well as for their advisers – particularly company secretaries and governance leads.

This brand-new title reflects the most recent changes to legislation and regulation and covers them in detail. It is structured so that it will guide the reader through the lifecycle of being a director in a clear, logical manner, starting with pre-appointment and concluding with succession planning, addressing all the essentials in between.
