Your board and management teams meet to add value to your organisation. And yet, too often, they’re not clear what support is needed or what discussion would be most valuable. This is a missed opportunity.

Watch this recording to hear BI’s Anna Humphreys (Manager, Specialist Delivery) and Barbara Frohn (Citi EMEA, Head of Regulatory Engagement, previously FCA) discuss the power of the Input Sought, and share stories and examples of how it can be used to benefit both author and reader.

We covered:

  • What happens when you don’t seek input.
  • How to figure out what your “ask” should be.
  • Appealing to hearts as well as minds, through tangible and intangible requests.
  • What a good “ask” looks like for all types of paper.
