Board Evaluation

About this webinar

If you register below you'll gain access to the webinar recording.

Better Boards is pleased to present "Board Evaluation" in partnership with Board Dynamics.

Annual board self-evaluations have long been considered a best practice, with the idea that measuring board performance leads to continuous improvement in governance. A disconnect today according to our research exists between what we want board evaluations to achieve, and what they actually do.

Join Henri for this session to explore the reasons why board evaluations often fail to actually improve board performance, and discuss issues such as:

  • Common flaws in board evaluation requirements issued by regulators
  • Why fixing the process isn’t as simple as finding a better questionnaire
  • How most board evaluation processes impede change

Henri will provide simple strategies and tools that can help evolve your board’s evaluation process from a “check the box” exercise, to an engine for creating continuous improvement.

The Presenter

Henri Eliot has retired from more boards and institutes than most people have joined, so founding Board Dynamics in 2009 was a logical step. He now uses his experience to help boards function at their peak. Henri has an international education and broad experience. He stays current on global hot topics through annual training at Stanford, Harvard and Cambridge University. He received his LLB (Hons) from the University of London, his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from McGill University in Canada and his MBA from Richmond University in the United Kingdom. Henri recently completed the prestigious MIT Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp and was awarded a certificate in New Ventures Leadership from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is currently pursuing part-time a postgraduate degree in Entrepreneurship at the University of Cambridge. His senior executive career has followed a similar path, working with JP Morgan Chase and PwC in the UK, Deloitte in New York, the Bank of Montreal in Toronto, and in telecommunications and ICT in New Zealand. Henri is a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Directors in New Zealand and Associate Member of Arbitrators & Mediators Institute of New Zealand. He trained as a mediator at Harvard Law School. Along with his work as an executive, Henri is a regular contributor to the NZ Herald, National Business Review, Idealog magazine and other publications. Henri Eliot is also the best-selling author of “Board Shorts”. Henri is currently Chairman Balle Bros Group, President Canada New Zealand Business Council and Trustee Plunket Foundation.
