  • Is the Board comprised of the right people to make the right decisions?
  • Board duties and responsibilities under the microscope: Australian Security Investment Commission v Mitchell (No 2) [2020] FCA 1098
  • Purpose as the guiding light: ensuring alignment between organisational objectives and operations
  • Does the board know what it needs to know? Financial and other reporting obligations
  • Conducting self -assessment and reviews of structure, activities and performance
  • Bringing in the experts
  • Putting risk management on the front footing, including new industrial manslaughter laws
  • Essential items for every Board meeting agenda
