The non-executive director member interest group presents: Board effectiveness, 11 November, Staple Inn Hall, London.
Chatham House rules apply.
With 20/20 hindsight, commentators on the financial crisis, the BP Deepwater Horizon episode and other corporate disasters point the finger at what they see as ineffective boards. There is widespread scepticism that board self-assessment of performance is at all rigorous and leads to improvement action.
Hosted by Anthony Hilton of the Evening Standard, (above), the illustrious panel will tackle the following questions:
How to recognise that a chair may need external help.
How to choose the right assessment process and assessor for different contexts.
What are the benefits to an individual NED of a strong assessment process?
How to sustain a freshness of approach over time.
Panel guests include:
Joe MacHale: formerly a non-executive director of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc from 2004, throughout the financial crisis until May 2013;
Colin Mayer: Said Business School and author of: Firm Commitment: Why the Corporation is Failing Us and How to Restore Trust in It;
Belinda Hudson: consultant, Independent Audit, corporate governance experts
Nick Kirkland: CEO, CIO Connect; non executive director, The Children's Mutual.
