Governance in a time of crisis - war stories from the boardroom

September 24, 2020


On Tuesday we hosted 60 attendees at Nexia House for an IOD event “Governance in a time of crisis – war stories from the Boardroom”.

Our in-depth panel discussion with Keiran Horne, Mike Killick and Bruce Cotterill, provided some insightful discussions on the role governance plays in managing a business through a tumultuous time.

Regardless of the type of organisation, there were some common themes that emerged across all the crises;

  • be prepared to roll up your sleeves
  • good communication with your employees, clients and stakeholders is critical
  • get to know the business and your people
  • ensure you have the right people with the right skills on the Board
  • show leadership at all times and trust your values

A big thanks to Sharynn Johnston and the IOD committee for their support!

Our next IOD ‘Deep Dive’ Session is on 26 November 2020 - details will follow in due course.
