This session aims to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to present your board with the best possible paper, leading to the best outcome for you and your organisation.
Your board is accountable for your organisation’s performance. And board papers should reflect this.
But we tend to write board papers in soft, flowery language. We fill board papers with clutter—‘the official language used by corporations to hide their mistakes'—that hides our paper’s purpose. This session will examine common paper writing pitfalls and how to avoid them. But we will also discuss how to:
- garner board support for your movement toward a plain English board pack
- reduce board paper length
- disseminate the information across your organisation, and
- get buy-in from the rest of the organisation.
