Induction and continuing development
On appointment all new Directors receive a formal induction, tailored to their particular needs, which includes, as appropriate, visits to key locations and meetings with senior executives. Throughout their period in office, Directors are continually updated on the Groups business and the competitive and regulatory environment in which it operates. Directors are advised on appointment of their legal and other duties and obligations as a director of a listed company and are periodically updated on these as part of their continuing development.
