Paul Streets OBE, Chief Executive of the Lloyds Bank Foundation, spoke to our supper evening on 6th October and offered us an insightful distillation of his experience both as a Chief Executive working with a wide range of Chairs, and as a Chair himself at Contact a Family.  Paul likened the Chair-Chief Executive relationship to a marriage, at its best creative and enjoyable and at its worst a nightmare, too often ending in divorce.  His own experience is that it’s harder to be a good Chair than a good Chief Executive.

He offered a range of advice and practical tips to get the relationship right, and was keen for us to be share a summary of his talk, which you can access through this link.
