The Effective Board – How to run a good Board Meeting – October 2018

Chairing a Board meeting is an art – and a difficult one to boot.  Few receive training, with a presumption that years in an executive role will have led to the natural development of chairing skills.  But it’s actually a serious challenge as it involves herding humans.

In this months Effective Board bulletin, we explore some of the “dos” and “don’ts” for running a good meeting.  Of course, being Chair of the Board is not only about meetings, so our next bulletin in November will focus on some other aspects of the job: the relationship with the CEO.

Some of this stuff might seem obvious, but it’s surprising how even the most experienced chair-people can get into bad habits.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.
