Critical Awards in Television 2021

We invite you to place your vote now! The Critical Awards in Television are an award of a different kind: rather than celebrating best programme, best performance, best script, the Critical Awards in Television want to celebrate television in the way that we value it: this year, by drawing attention to the service it has rendered to us by giving us comfort during Covid, by celebrating those productions that came up with clever ways of dealing with Covid restrictions so that they could continue to be made, by celebrating writers who found alternative ways of telling stories and by celebrating future television makers (who are currently students) who have come up with clever ways of making television in these difficult times. Vote now!

What Does a Good Non-executive Director on a Public-Sector Board Look Like Today?

Dr Joy Tweed, University of Westminster
Over the past couple of decades, the expectations and requirements for a non-executive director (NED) in the public sector have changed. There’s been shifts in terminology from lay members to NEDs and differing expectations of whether the role is one of representing the views of local people/service users or the contribution of particular business skills to good corporate governance. Is ‘lived experience’ or local knowledge valued or are business skills from the private sector preferred? In this seminar Joy will draw on her experience and research to consider what a ‘good’ NED and ‘good governance’ might look like as we move into a new era of integrated care systems.
This event has been postponed to later in the year, date TBC.
