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.

By seeking input, you not only prime the reader for a richer discussion but also get value back — perhaps their advice on an issue or their assurance that you’re doing the right thing. And once embedded, reporting and meetings can become instrumental to your day job – a space to harness the expertise and experience of your leaders – rather than a one-way time sink.

In this 30-min session, we’ll uncover the power of the Input Sought in all papers (not just those requiring approval) and how you can use it to help you in your day job.

We'll cover:

  • 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.

BI’s Anna Humphreys will be joined by Barbara Frohn, Citi EMEA Head of Regulatory Engagement (formerly Director Risk and Compliance Oversight, FCA) for the session. Join us to hear her insights on the importance of the “ask” and how it’s used at the FCA.

This session will be hosted by Anna Humpheys, Manager - Specialist Delivery. She focuses on delivering bespoke projects solving the complex problems our clients are facing. During her time at BI, Anna has become an expert in driving more effective communication, meetings and decision making for a wide variety of organisations.
