About the Roundtable

Using Board Intelligence research, the ICAEW’s new report Information Overload — Effective Boards and Committees in Financial Services highlights a common problem in Financial Services boardrooms. Board packs are continuing to increase in size, sometimes breaching 1,000 pages. It is not humanly possible for a director to read, understand and digest this level of information and ultimately make the required decisions requested, in the limited time available.

Join Board Intelligence, the ICAEW, and industry leaders to discuss these findings, and learn what tangible steps can be taken to implement effective changes within your company.
