Non-executive team member

No board meetings? Could you still benefit from a non-exec?

Board room table with chairs, and the question, Do you need a 'critical friend'?

I define the role of non-exec team member as, “to provide a creative contribution to the business by providing independent oversight and constructive challenge to business leaders and senior management teams.”

Having said all that, my favourite bite-sized definition for either role is ‘critical friend’.
