The Effective Board – A few thoughts for Chairmen

A lot has been published on “how to be a good chairman”.  Much of it is a lesson in egg sucking for wise old birds.  But we thought it might be worth highlighting a few aspects which don’t always get air time but which crop up quite regularly in our board reviews.  They apply as much to committee chairmen as they do to board chairmen.  It’s not in any sense comprehensive – just a few thoughts for you to consider.  And apologies to those of you for whom these points are all too obvious!


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

Helping you get it right

For us, good governance is about good performance.

Yes, compliance matters.  But our work is about helping you make sure your organisation…is led effectively by a board that adds value…is kept under control through risk management and assurance frameworks that meet your needs…and is “doing the right thing”.
