Board room reviews are an essential part of a company’s governance system. The board may take advantage of this opportunity to determine if the abilities and experiences of its members are aligned with strategic demands. It helps the board identify its expertise gaps and future opportunities to improve the effectiveness of the board.

The board of directors is the main control body for a company. It decides on the policies that affect everyone, from the employees to the shareholders. It is crucial that the motherboard is in top condition so that it can function effectively. A peer-review of the board is one way to make sure that it is in top shape. These can be difficult to conduct, since they typically involve a substantial component of criticism and require a skilled facilitator.

The Board Room and Speakeasy, set in a strip mall called the Del Prado Shopping Center in Novato is a great to find. Munther Masarweh is the executive chef-owner of Ricky’s Restaurant in Novato and Scrumptious Occasions catering in Novato and designer Michael Brennan recreated a supperclub which was a popular hangout in the mid-century era of Kansas City and Chicago. The decor features an antique bookcase with a trompe-l’oeil design that can be pulled back to reveal the speakeasy.
