With COVID-19 affecting our ability to hold board meetings face to face, many organisations are holding their board and senior leadership team meetings virtually. The shift to virtual environments is now the new normal, but how can companies and their boards successfully navigate the waters of online meetings to maintain performance and ensure effective decision-making at a distance – while preserving good governance?

It is vital for boards and company secretaries to keep up with the rapid deployment of technology that businesses are currently witnessing, and the expectations of their role in this digital age. More importantly, the board chair will need to come to terms with the technology as he or she plays a key role in keeping the board team optimally focused and effective digitally.

Social distancing is here to stay and travel restrictions may vary with countries and therefore, online platforms may be a necessity in time to come, not so much as an option.
