Fidelio Board Breakfast – “Effective Chairman, Effective Board”, 16 January 2017
In our work building and developing Boards, Fidelio clearly sees the exceptional demands on the Chairman. These demands come from shareholders and stakeholders and are accentuated by business disruption. An effective Chair is the key to an effective Board.
We are delighted to welcome as a guest speaker at Fidelio’s next Board breakfast, David Jackson, Company Secretary BP plc, to shed light on the all-important support required for effective Chairmen. David has over 20 years of Board-level experience, supporting two Boards and working with six Chairmen. In particular, David will address three key questions:
1. What are the challenges facing the Chairman and the Board?
2. Given those challenges, what support do Chairmen and their Boards need? Are there different models?
3. How should Boards be thinking about succession for both Chairmen and Non-Executive Directors?
Our guests at this Fidelio Board breakfast will be Chairmen, Non-Executive and Executive Directors as well as Company Secretaries. The breakfast is by personal invitation only and will be held at Aquavit London, St James’s Market 1 Carlton Street, London SW1Y 4QQ.
