Chairman Think Tank Breakfast: 12th September
In our new series of Chairman Think Tank breakfasts, we’re revisiting some of the topics discussed earlier this year — Employee Voice and Board Information — as well as introducing a new topic — Culture.
The first of our autumn series will focus on Board Information. There is greater scrutiny than ever on the information boards receive, yet board pack quality is deteriorating rathen than improving. What can the Chair do to improve this and what are those that are bucking the trend doing to make a difference?

The Board’s Role & Value in PE-Backed Businesses: 19th September
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.
