Provides an analysis of the role of "external" or non-executive directors and their relationship with executive entrepreneurs in small but entrepreneurial (growing) companies, focusing on their influence on executive learning. We provide qualitative analysis of research based on 45 face-to-face interviews. Despite the importance given to individual executive and organisational learning in large companies, comparatively little literature exists on executive entrepreneurial learning in small companies. The factors that can affect such learning are discussed with emphasis on the role played by external directors who, it is argued, are likely to be appointed in such companies due to the need for additional expertise and knowledge in a rapidly changing environment.
