Board Meetings Best Practices

Board meetings should be held at company offices to let board members see your products and mingle with the team.

Spend time with Board members individually before the meeting. Board meetings should not result in surprises.

Share board decks in advance to set expectations and use a standard format to allow easy comparison from past reports and to help connecting the dots over time.

Present challenges first, and then the successes. This allows for more time to discuss challenges, shows the CEO is always in mode of reducing risk for business and it lets people walk away with positive news.
