Board culture

Creating and maintaining an effective board culture is vital to ensuring good decision making, healthy debate and challenge and also to set the tone for the rest of the organisation.

Selection process

A key element of the selection process for each new board member is to assess whether a particular candidate will bring the right level of challenge, independence and openness. The result is a board where members are both challenging but also supportive of each other.
