Board Evaluation launched!
Three events were held on 14th and 15th March to launch Board Evaluation at the offices of Yorkshire Bank in Birmingham.
Invited guests heard Richard Boot explain how the idea for the Company was developed, who was behind the Company and why there was a need for its services and advice. Jean Pousson then gave a presentation about the importance of Board performance evaluation and how using an external and independent adviser like BEL could improve corporate performance by helping to ensure that the full potential of the board was realised.
There was a lively Q&A session at the end of each of the events and it was clear from the feedback that everyone recognised the benefits of the services that BEL was promoting.
A number of Board Evaluation’s key messages clearly resonated with the guests, notably that the issues we suggested do exist in practice, that an independent external adviser can help with their resolution and that to be worthwhile the board performance review should not be just another “tick box” compliance exercise.
The Board Evaluation approach to this subject was well-received and we hope that our offer to work with potential clients to design an appropriate piece of work will be widely promoted.
