Boards of directors throughout the U.K. and Continental Europe are increasingly undertaking self-evaluation processes.  The main driver for board evaluations is compliance with governance codes.  However, such codes --  either mandated by law or identified in “best practice” codes advocated by major business groups -- vary considerably with regard to the frequency for conducting board evaluations, the use of internal versus external evaluations ( the latter often using independent third parties), and the disclosure of board evaluation processes in company annual reports.  This webcast describes how prevalent are board evaluations in the U.K. and Continental Europe, what key questions boards should ask of themselves before they undertake an evaluation, the mechanics of effective board evaluations and how companies go about disclosing information pertaining to their evaluation processes.   

  • What are the most important questions boards should ask themselves before they begin the evaluation process?

  • What are “best practices” in initiating and conducting a board evaluation?

  • How much information is required to be (or should be) disclosed regarding the evaluation process?

Who Should Attend:

Executive Directors, CEOs, Chief Legal Counsel, Corporate Secretaries, Corporate Governance Officers, Secretaries to Boards of Directors, Risk Officers, Human Relations Executives, Investor Relations Executives, Institutional Investors
