Chair’s Challenge Series: Appraising Your Chief Executive

This event is now fully booked. Add your name to the waiting list.

Tuesday 9 October 2018. 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Registration from 6:00 pm. Please note that there is no space before 6 pm for attendees to gather. We ask that you arrive after this time.

Getting the best from your Chief Executive is a key responsibility for Chairs. CEOs are entitled to expect timely, constructive and balanced feedback to help them understand and meet the Board’s expectations of them. Yet, the ACEVO Pay and Equalities Survey 2018 reports 28% of Chief Executives do not have a regular appraisal.

A good feedback and appraisal process enables you to recognise your CEO’s achievements and provide feedback that motivates and helps to develop them. It’s also the opportunity to pick up on any areas for development or any areas of concern to take timely action.

This briefing, generously supported by Odgers Berndtson explores why appraising your CEO matters and how to make the appraisal process work well. It highlights what already exists that is relevant and useful; shares practical experience from Chairs and others, and offers ideas and suggestions for how you can manage this important challenge.

Timings for the event are:
• 6:00pm – Registration and refreshments
• 6.30pm – Launch of briefing including Q&A
• 8:00pm – Drinks reception and networking
• 9:00 pm – Close

Please note that there is no space before 6pm for attendees to gather. We ask that you arrive after this time.

The event is open to all Chairs and Vice Chairs – though priority for places is given to our members.
