Paul Street shares his Chair-CEO experiences with us

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.
