Further to the reboot of Board recruitment
Karin has suggested that this is an opportune time to have the Board
governance retreat that has been in discussion for a while now.
The proposal is to hold this in the last quarter of this year, to nail down
and address some issues around governance, and - hopefully - to induct new
members of the Board who will have joined by then.
There are a few ways we could do this; one proposed plan is as
follows, for *early
November on the Isle of Wight *at Tapnell Farm <http://tapnellfarm.com/>:
- Tue 7th, eve: Board joins OKI team for dinner
- Wed 8th, morning - mid aft: Board retreat, addressing governance
issues including the role of the Board in supporting the CEO, the
relationship with the community, and accountability and performance within
- Wed 8th, late aft: concise Board meeting (focussing on finances and
immediate outcomes of retreat), finished by 18.00 at latest
I'm advocating for the above plan not only because I want to join, but
also: the Leadership Team will already be together for the Autumn Summit;
you will be able to meet the wider team; it's not far to travel for Helen,
who has limited time due to the impending arrival of her baby (wohoo!); the
location is beautiful and should help creative juices flow!
Alternatively we could look at London around that time or sooner.
Please respond with your thoughts / suggestions.
