There is a simple method of guaging how good a company’s board meeting is. If you emerge more fired up and energised when you come out than when you went in, that’s good. Wednesday’s AGM and board meeting were good. They dealt with the nuts and bolts, unglamourous aspects of being a legaly constituted company with humour and efficiency.
The more energy your board adds to the company the better they are. This lot are great. They are engaged. They dish out compliments readily. They ask provokative questions. They make acute observations. They share relevant experiences. They offer practical assistance. They know when to leave well alone. They share a sense of being part of it and, crucially, they show up.
If you look forward to board meetings something must be going very right. Roll on 21st February, 2007.
