What Boards Could Learn From…: 6th November
Governance scandals. Corporate mistrust. They matter more than ever but the same old platitudes keep being trotted out and it’s time for something new.
Exclusively for board members, we will be hosting a series of TED-style talks as we look at fresh sources of inspiration to age-old problems. From Paralympians to hackers, professors to military leaders, join us at ‘What Boards Could Learn From…’ to understand how their experiences can be applied to the boardroom.

For Private Equity Professionals
The Board’s Role & Value in PE-Backed Businesses: 19th November
Board meetings are a key tool for value creation — making the board pack an important focus for PE houses and their portfolio companies. Yet, few boards manage to make it value-enhancing.
To understand what’s going wrong, and why, we engaged with over 100 investment professionals, portfolio company executives, and experienced non-executives. Our research revealed a worrying disconnect between what is expected from board meetings and what they actually achieve, as well as widespread concerns about the quality of board reporting.
Join our breakfast roundtable in London to discuss these findings, and learn what leading portfolio company boards are doing to deliver value-enhancing board meetings.
For Financial Services Professionals

Join our breakfast roundtable in London to find out 5 key steps that any company can take to assess where they are on their SMR journey.
