Insights Into Building a Powerhouse Board

04 Mar 2020

IoD Ireland CEO, Maura Quinn, features in ‘Building a Powerhouse Board’, the title of the latest episode in the Joe.ie business video podcast series, ‘All In’, just published by Maximum Media. The programme also features Ann Hunt, co-founder and CEO of Chasing Returns, the risk management platform.

Over the first 30 minutes, presenter Yvonne Redmond talks with Maura and Ann about board recruitment and appointment processes, board members’ remuneration, the benefits of board diversity and the scope of its application, the importance of accountability and compliance, and the crucial relationship between the board and the executive.

Following this fascinating discussion, the episode then looks at a ‘Trailblazer’ company (mental health app, Keep Appy) before returning to focus on ‘One to Watch’ companies, with Maura placing the spotlight on the ongoing Irish success story that is Fulfil Nutrition, whose MD Brian O’Sullivan is also an IoD member.
