This practical and comprehensive one-day course will show you how your board should operate in order to achieve maximum results. It will help you to understand how the skills and abilities of different directors should be harnessed to complement each other and drive the company forward. It will demonstrate how a high-performing board can set the tone and lead the organisational strategy most effectively.
The course will show you how to properly evaluate the effectiveness of board operations. It will explain the technical aspects of creating a thorough and on-going review process, helping to generate a culture of continuous improvement in board effectiveness.
