Boards of directors and individual directors at all levels of corporate activity are increasingly in the spotlight in terms of how they operate and how they perform. Shareholders, as well as broader stakeholder groups, have expectations that may exceed those of the board itself. Board performance evaluation is a discipline that a broader range and size of company is adopting however the basis and standard of the evaluation process itself often lacks rigor and direction.
Invitation to attend
On Tuesday 16th October 2018, the Non-Executive Directors’ Association (‘NEDA’) and Smith & Williamson are hosting their annual debate.
This is an interactive session and we encourage YOU to attend and to get involved in the debate.
The Debate Chairman will be Barry Gamble who has previously chaired a number of NED debates, and in adopting the debate format to explore this very topical issue we are recognising there is a parallel between a debate and a boardroom. In each situation, there must be respect for the opposing view, but also an atmosphere of constructive challenge after careful listening. A good decision will hopefully result through the examination of alternative approaches.
"This house believes that NEDs are failing to hold the executive to account".
