Professional Boards Forum Event – 21 November 2013
Keynote speakers: Peter Wakkie, Chairman of the Supervisory board at Wolters Kluwer and
Tineke Bahlmann, board member, ING Group
> See programme

The following Chairmen/Senior Non-Executive directors participated:

“The Professional Boards Forum brings together senior board members and women who are businesswise, extremely professional but publicly still ‘under the radar’. These two groups

deserve to get to know each other and that is exactly what the Forum achieves. It is amazing how

much talent is brought together in an effective, but also, entertaining mode. At KAS BANK, we were able to move swiftly once the initial contact was established. Within a period of five months,

we finalised the whole process of appointing to our board the candidate I first met at the Forum, including all internal interviews, meetings with external stake holders and our shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.”

Albert Röell, CEO KAS Bank

“When interviewing for an NED role evaluate if the other board members are clear why they want you to join. As a woman you often bring diverse thoughts to a board and you need to ensure the other board members have a genuine interest in your views. I really enjoyed the Professional Boards Forum event and look forward to participating again in the future.”
