NED chats ~ Jenny Brown, Board Member and Chair of Audit and Risk Committee, Longhurst Group

Watch our chat with Jenny Brown, Board Member and Chair of Audit and Risk Committee, Longhurst Group.

Jenny has been on boards since her 20s. In this video she shares her reflections on the role of a Non-Executive Director. Highlights:
☛ Contributing in areas that aren’t necessarily your specialism
☛ Standing back and seeing the wood from the trees
☛ Having a NED role alongside a full-time job
☛ The benefit of multi-generational boards
☛ Being yourself, “I wear Dr Martens, and you won’t see me wearing a suit with them in board meetings!”
☛ Good governance and strategic thinking
☛ Psychological safety
☛ Her perspective on good board recruitment

Thank you Jenny for your time!
