Better Boards is pleased to present "Transitioning from Director to Chair" in partnership with Tracy Morgan, Managing Director @ Morstone Pty Ltd & independent NED.

Establishing your board career is challenging and securing your first chair role even more so. What do you need to know, what additional skills do you require, and what pathways are available?

The role of the chair is challenging, so how do you ensure you lead effectively to ensure your board is high performing? Traditionally the chair’s role has been to lead meetings, ensuring correct protocols are followed. Today however, the chair’s role has become significantly broader, both inside and outside the organisation.

This session will help you understand the role and challenges faced by the chair in the 21st century.

In this session Tracy will:

  • Explore the pathways to becoming a chair
  • Discuss the scope and responsibilities of the Chair vs. an NED
  • Look at the skills and personal qualities needed to be an effective chair
  • Examine the chair’s role in driving board culture
