The Remuneration Committee is now seen as one of the most challenging of the board committees. There exists today an unprecedented scrutiny of executive remuneration with an increasing emphasis on the ethical nature of incentive schemes. The Remuneration Committee must therefore balance attracting and retaining the right talent while also motivating them to deliver shareholder value.

Overview

In this session Angela will discuss what makes a Remuneration Committee effective, how the changing landscape of corporate governance is challenging remuneration committees and the growing importance of stakeholder management across Executive Directors, committee members, and shareholders.

Angela will also share her views on what makes a good Remuneration Chair and why this is a role to aspire to, despite the challenges. The Nominations Committee plays a critical role in ensuring the Board has the right skills, experience and knowledge.

Angela will share her experience of working through both CEO and Chair successions and provide insights into what makes the Committee effective at these most crucial moments. Participants will discuss real case studies, focusing on appropriate courses of action to take as Members/Chairs of each of these Committees, and how thereafter to advise and guide the Board on decision making and implementation.
