Five top tips for holding successful board meetings

  1. Make sure the meeting starts before the meeting: Set the agenda, compile any reports which are needed and distribute to everyone who needs them before the board meeting begins.
  2. Keep detailed minutes: Someone should always take notes which are a summary of the points made and any actionable steps to be followed up should be assigned to an owner.
  3. Give recognition and praise: Members of the board will usually respond well to positive feedback so make sure this is a key part of any regular board meetings you stage.
  4. Listen and ask for people’s opinions: By making everyone feel more engaged in the board meeting process, you tend to get more out of it.
  5. Start and end board meetings on time: It might sometimes feel like running a few minutes over doesn’t matter, but if it is hindering productivity further down the line it’s not a good idea.
