Role of the board

March 28, 2019

Bailey Fisher’s Managing Director, Andrew Moore and Head of Technology Practice, Toby Young were pleased to welcome 15 Board members for the latest in Bailey Fisher’s series of Chair Dinners, with backgrounds from within early stage and scale up tech, private equity and PLC boardrooms across the UK and globally.

Lively discussion focused on the importance of governance; strategic advice; Board dynamics; the differences between UK & US; balancing interests of strong executive teams vs investors and ensuring a diversity of thought. The most effective Boards appear to have a structure that ensures governance and fiduciary responsibility supported by Advisory Boards; can demonstrate trust and support of the management team and have a clear path to success.

The Chair Dinner is organised and hosted by Bailey Fisher in partnership with Silicon Valley Bank and Taylor Vinters.
