Building brave B Corp boards with The Good Board

What to expect?

Join us for an interactive discussion about building a brave and effective board where we will discuss invisible bears, seeing the wood from the trees and why having a board full of your biggest fans isn’t always the best recipe for success.

If you are a current Chair, a Board member or a CEO looking at developing your board, you’ll be in great company as we discuss the role, purpose and culture of boards and delve into the key themes underpinning the development of brave boards who effectively support business impact and success.

We’ll be discussing increasing scrutiny and complexity, why the role of the board is so critical to long-term sustainable success and what that means for the future of boards.

Why join this session?

Join us to discuss with industry experts and other B Corp leaders, how in today’s uncertain times, brave boards can amplify the impact of B Corps, juggling the unique challenges of aligning people, planet and profit. Hear from Louise Gatenby and Alastair Paton who have spent over 50 years between them advising businesses on the development of boards and leadership teams and meet other brave B Corp board members to share experiences, insights and learnings.

What are the key outcomes?

(We would like to think) Some great ideas and plenty of energy to help you to go back to your business and improve the effectiveness of both your board and your individual contribution to it. An opportunity to step back and reflect on your board and bring into focus the key pillars of building brave and effective boards and why that is so important to business success and impact.
