Business breakfast focuses on strategy for the board

Ensuring that a company has a great strategy is among a board’s most important functions and the ultimate measure of its stewardship, argues lead chartered director Christian Vassallo in the run-up to the IoD business breakfast to be held on February 21.

The business breakfast will be led and moderated by chartered director Christian Vassallo (clockwise, from top left) and a panel consisting of Mapfre Middlesea chairman Martin Galea, EY Partner Geraint Davies and Guillaumier business dynamics chairman Anthony Guillaumier.The business breakfast will be led and moderated by chartered director Christian Vassallo (clockwise, from top left) and a panel consisting of Mapfre Middlesea chairman Martin Galea, EY Partner Geraint Davies and Guillaumier business dynamics chairman Anthony Guillaumier.

Yet even as new governance responsibilities and faster competitive shifts require much more and much better board engagement on strategy, a great number of boards remain hamstrung by a wide variety of challenges.Mr Vassallo will be joined by a learned and highly experienced panel consisting of Mapfre Middlesea chairman Martin Galea, EY Partner Geraint Davies and Guillaumier business dynamics chairman Anthony Guillaumier.

Developing strategy has always been complex and becomes more so with a board’s increased involvement, which introduces new voices and expertise to the debate and puts pressure on management teams and board members alike to find the best answers.

Yet this form of strategy development, when done well, is invaluable. It not only leads to clearer strategies but also creates the alignment necessary to make bolder moves with more confidence and to follow through by committing resources to key decisions.This second IoD Club event will be held at EY Malta.

It starts at 7.30am for breakfast, ending no later than 9am to allow busy directors and entrepreneurs get to the office full of new information that can have a dramatic effect on the strategic performance of their business.

Istitute of Directors chairman Edwin Ward said: “Many boards are challenged by effectively overseeing strategy. This IoD event will provide directors with practical insights to help them fulfill their duty as a board member to oversee a strategy designed to maximise shareholder value.”
