Very readable, easy to dip into for specific advice and comments on particular issues. A reference book that should stand the test of time. -- Bruce Carnegie-Brown, Chair of Lloyds of London, President CMI
Patrick has covered all of the bases in Boards from the how and why to very practical areas that arent usually examined in such depth in the People and Dilemmas sections. Its a fascinating read and an invaluable reference for anyone involved in working with Boards. Its the best book on boards Ive ever read. -- Brenda Trenowden CBE, Global co-Chair 30% Club, PwC Partner
I would commend this book to all entrepreneurs, directors and anyone who wants to one day help lead an organisation. If you dont understand how governance and boards work you will never be effective. This immensely practical guide, explains how it all works, is littered with great guidance and will enable you to be a wiser and better director. A must read, one to put on the top of your reading list. -- John Jeffcock, CEO Winmark
"Patrick wears his learning lightly, drawing on his experience across different sectors and continents to provide some great practical insights into the job of a director. -- Chris Hodge, Director, Governance Perspectives
Possibly the most practical guide around. So easy to read because it is written by a Board Director and Chairman who has operated in nearly every type of Board; from Private Equity to Social Enterprise, and Business Advisory to University. -- Paul Drechsler, Chair of Bibby Line Group, London First, Teach First, Chancellor Teesside University, Former President CBI, Chair of Non-Executive Director Awards (Sunday Times/Peel Hunt)
A rich, fresh resource for directors in any sector on boards of all kinds and those working with them or otherwise advising them, including CEOs and other senior leaders. Patrick Dunne rightly focuses on how to do it well and resolve challenges rather than on what to do. This is the guide to EQ in Governance which is vital, especially for all Chairs, established, new in post and aspiring, which is generously shared from the wise experience of the author. -- Dame Mary Marsh, Chair of Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
