Better Boards, Better Business? 

The purpose of a Board should be to build a comprehensive picture that shows how their organisation’s business is being affected by the current business environment.

To build that picture, a Board needs prompt and convenient access to the right data and reports. Unfortunately many organisations struggle to make this happen, leaving their Board unable to identify upcoming market, regulatory or legislative changes and the impact these may have on their business; preventing any quick and corrective measures that could be taken.

Listen to Gareth Tancred, CEO at the Pensions Management Institute, Roger Barker Director at the Institute of Directors and Steve Rollett, Deputy CEO at the Confederation of School Trusts who look in detail at four key aspects of Better Boards. 

Conversation points and topics covered: 

  • How to optimies the functioning of your Board
  • How to drive strategic decisions as Board level
  • Subcommittees: does your Board need them
  • The importance of Board Collaboration
