CEO & Board Directors Consensus 2021: The Board Director of Today
Principal Connections’ CEO and Board Search Practice has helped many of the most successful organisations across Ireland build their boards and senior leadership teams.
As we continue to navigate the global public health emergency as well as Brexit and new trade deal arrangements, the presence of a strong, independent and effective board is more crucial than ever. The most effective boards have a positive and sustainable impact on the organisations that they serve ensuring good governance while driving organisational performance. High performing boards instil confidence among shareholders, trustee’s and stakeholders, and create a diverse and balanced perspective — one that reflects the strategic vision of an enterprise.
A Report by CEO & Board Search Firm Principal Connections
In December of 2020, Principal Connections decided to undertake a comprehensive research programme to gauge the views of board directors of Irish entities – ranging from plc’s and multinationals to private limited companies, public sector and non-profit entities, concerning a broad range of board related themes. Topics focused on included board – practices, refreshment, diversity, social issues and COVID-19. The findings have produced many interesting insights for the first time in an Irish context.
We would like to sincerely thank the CEO and board director group who took considerable time from their busy schedules to participate in this consensus. We at Principal Connections firmly hope that this consensus will support and better inform boardrooms across Ireland in their debate and decision making as they look to the future.
