Chairing in Practice
Chairing in Practice Programme
We are in a world where trends are hugely accelerated and continually evolving. Chairs are much taken up in considering the impact of these changes on the role of the board, its agendas and what structures will be best for their boards in order to meet this increased degree of complexity.
Our guiding principle is that it is the role of the Chair to create the atmosphere in which value can be created for stakeholders and society at large. Over the course of the series, we will unpick each element of that sentence-
How is that atmosphere created?
What does ‘value’ mean now?
How does one structure the board to deliver to that agenda and
How does one manage the new quality of 360* stakeholder engagement?
The group is made up of a selected group of new and in-coming Chairs and senior board members. To determine the content of the sessions, we adopt the framework of the various relationships through which the Chair leads. Each of the sessions centres on one such, with two experienced Chairs or other speakers leading the conversation before opening it into a single conversation.
The topics include:
The experiential and practical aspects of becoming a Chair
Crafting the Board
• the CEO and Executive Directors
• the Committee Chairs and SID
• Government and Regulators
Developing/transforming company structure and performance
The tone is kept wholly conversational while the Chatham House rule applies absolutely.
