What is your board’s culture?

You are invited to our end of year lunch in the beautiful Hunter Valley with guest speaker Kyle Loades FAICD, Director of CUA as we discuss the importance of setting the right culture in the boardroom.

The findings of the Financial Services Royal Commission shines a spotlight on the impact of culture from the top down and has reignited debate over the role of the board in driving organisational culture.

This lunch will examine the key behaviors that drive high performance at the board level and how they are demonstrated across the business including:

  • Examining the chair’s role in setting and steering the culture of the board.
  • Best practise in setting performance targets and incentives that will lead to ethical behaviour
  • Methodologies the board can use to monitor and evaluate management’s approach to effective people management and nurturing the desired culture

Be sure to book early to celebrate the end of the year with your peers in the beautiful Hunter Valley.
