Inspiring exemplary board performance
Board Agenda is a progressive and independent media brand dedicated to inform board directors, investors and professional advisers on emerging issues that shape corporate leadership, fuel effective boards and drive business success.
An award winning editorial team and renowned contributors provide incisive news analysis, engaging commentary and topical investigative reports on an extensive range of subjects, such as shareholder activism, corporate culture, risk management, corporate reputation, selection & diversity, strategic planning, legal & regulatory issues, outsourcing, finance, M&A, technology, investor relations, ethics, sustainability and executive remuneration.
Our editorial programme is enhanced by experienced and practising non-executive and executive board directors, as well as investors, governance professionals, economists, academics, politicians and regulators from Europe and across the world, with thousands of articles, reports and case studies available on every conceivable issue that board members encounter.
The independent ethos of Board Agenda means that editorial leader articles criticise, challenge or applaud corporate behaviour; there is informed opinion from diverse standpoints on topical business issues, probing interviews with corporate leaders, investigative business reporting, and analysis of corporate failures as well as successes.
Board Agenda’s purpose is to support board executives so they gain insight about issues that impact on governance, acquire specific knowledge about board practices, navigate the increasing complexities of their role, embed best practice in their board activities, help them achieve effective board oversight and ensure their performance as board members is exemplary.
