Better Boards is pleased to present "Board Evaluation Webinar" in partnership with Henri Eliot, Founder of 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.

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.
