Managing Conflict of Interest in the NFP Boardroom

Practice Lead, Governance Advisory at Vital Advisory

Better Boards is pleased to present "Managing Conflict of Interest in the NFP Boardroom" in partnership with Garry Barnes, Practice Lead, Governance Advisory at Vital Advisory.

A conflict of interest can become a grey area or quickly seed resentment and division if not approached correctly. It is critical for directors on NFP boards to be very clear and transparent in this area.

So how do you recognise a conflict of interest, and how do you manage it?

This session will look at how to maintain an ethical board through effective management of conflicts of interest.

In this session Garry will:

  • define conflicts of interest
  • explore examples of conflicts of interest
  • examine the impacts of conflicts of interest
  • explore methods to manage situations where it arises
