Patrick Dunne: Boards: A Practical Perspective – 2nd Edition

We highly recommend Patrick Dunne’s second edition of the award-winning book ‘Boards’ which a practical, realistic, thought-provoking, and useful guide to life as a board member.

Patrick has written ‘Boards’ in a universally accessible and engaging style that brings life and fun to what is a profoundly serious topic.

Boards won the HR & Management Category of the Business Books Awards, described as: “An easy read, it delivers invaluable advice, with practical, real-life case studies, which enable the reader to better understand the challenges of working at board level. Whether you are a new or experienced board member, or on the senior leadership team working with board members, this is an invaluable guide that will enable, empower, and enrich your understanding, interactions and contribution.”

Fully updated, the “Purpose”, “People” and “Process” structure continues to work well with latest content covering the pandemic and its impact on boards and how they operate, diversity and inclusion, culture, stakeholder management, board reviews, smaller listed companies as well as the increased use of technology. This combined with a series of real-life dilemmas for readers to practice on, makes this book an ideal companion whether you are an aspirant, novice, or seasoned campaigner.

Drawing on Patrick’s extensive range of experience working with and on boards in many sectors, in the UK and internationally, it is equally applicable to business, charities and social enterprises, professional services firms, public bodies and universities.

We highly recommend Patrick Dunne’s second edition of the award-winning book ‘Boards’ which a practical, realistic, thought-provoking, and useful guide to life as a board member.
