Boards That Don't Suck

We'll explore the good, the bad and the ugly of venture-backed boards and talk candidly about what can go wrong with venture investors and more importantly how to nurture high performing boards, in a hard-hitting session grounded in real-life experiences of failure and success. From Zoopla to Deliveroo and Pillpack, we will also explore the lessons learned from some of the best founders in the business.
