Despite the ongoing challenges faced by UK businesses, as lockdown measures ease and businesses start to re-open and adjust to a new way of working, directors across all sectors will be looking ahead and need to maintain a ‘hands on’ approach to considering, implementing and communicating key decisions.

Board Briefing June 2020

It remains vital not only to deal with events in real time as they arise, but also to anticipate the next set of challenges and put appropriate measures in place to protect the business from further waves of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Talking openly about the risks and opportunities at Board and senior management level will allow directors and senior management teams to engage and proactively manage conflicting pressures, build greater resilience and achieve the best possible outcome for the business in the short, medium and longer term.

The purpose of this Board Briefing is to provide an overview of the key issues that may lie ahead together with a list of action points to help set the agenda for discussions on the following areas:

1.  Operational
2. Financial and strategic opportunities
3.  Corporate governance and legal
4.  People and health and safety
5.  Stakeholders: customers, clients and the market
6.  Brexit
7.  Data protection and cyber security
8.  Insurance cover
9. Ethical and ESG.

If directors, senior management or in-house lawyers want to discuss any of the issues in this Board Briefing in more detail, please do get in touch. Our Corporate lawyers are very happy to talk these through face to face (via video conference). We would also welcome any feedback for our future Board Briefings.
