Boardroom Conversations

By | 05/03/2019 in Events

Converse with an acknowledged expert and take the benefit of their experience back to your board.

Our ‘Boardroom Conversation’ series of events is designed to facilitate sharing best practice amongst the largest companies in the UK. After the ‘Conversation’, the floor will be opened for questions from the specially invited audience. The session is divided equally between these two parts of the conversation. A buffet breakfast aids an informal and open atmosphere in which participants discuss board effectiveness, sharing their collective perspectives. Held in conjunction with the Financial Times Non-Executive Directors’ Club.
