“The board of directors‘ key purpose is to ensure the company’s prosperity by collectively directing the company’s affairs, whilst meeting the appropriate interests of its shareholders and stakeholders,” according to Brefi, a UK-based organisation that assists companies with the optimisation of their boards.
At our March meeting of Asia Insight Circle, we learned how Boards manage the selection process and what you can do to position yourself for consideration.
An “After Breakfast @ Asia Insight Circle” podcast will be published the week of 1 April (not kidding).
