Part 1: What make a Board Effective?

When meetings are nothing more than a review of the pre reads, boards suffer immense opportunity costs: lost collaboration, missed questions and unsaid moments of genius — the things that make meetings worth having.

We believe it all comes down to having the right mix of processes, people and reporting to ensure meetings remain engaging and facilitate effective decision-making.

Listen to our guest expert Julie Garland McLellan to learn:

  • The processes for engaging the board in productive discussion
  • How to build a robust and defensible decision framework
  • Mechanisms for building consensus across the board
  • Methods for monitoring and reporting on matters as they arise
  • How to use consent agenda as a method for making productive use of meeting time

Part 2: Getting Your Next Board Role

In this second webinar, our guest Julie Garland McLellan shared some practical advice on how to evaluate your next board opportunity and how to put your best foot forward during the appointment process.
