The relationships between the Board and the CEO or the CEO and his or her most senior executives are the most important working relationships in an organisation and will set the tone and culture of the organisation as well as steering the strategy and profitability of the business.
Joanna Betteridge is an experienced Non-Executive Director and currently Chairs one not for profit organisation and is Vice Chair of another. She is very well placed to understand the dynamics of those key relationships.
Finding the right person for the role and then negotiating the terms and conditions which will govern the life of that relationship are key steps to a successful working partnership.
BLC can advise either party to that negotiation and can draft or review key contracts.
At the other end of the relationship, there are significant reputational and strategic risks to be managed for both parties. BLC understands those risks and can work with either party to end the relationship well.
