MEDIA REVIEWS

'The world is not so global, a board is not so perfect ' - Professor Yvon Pesqueux, Chair, Development Systems Organisation

'Too many studies focus on the statutory role of the board and not enough on the reality of boardroom conduct. In this broad reaching study, the authors assess board dynamics globally. While it would be convenient for a standard set of behaviours and ideals to manifest, in fact, the opposite is true. Best in breed companies rely on diversity and contextual knowledge creates longer lasting wealth creation.' - Yasmin Allen, Director Export Finance and Insurance Corporation, Australian Government, Australia

'This timely and well reasoned assessment of Global Boards, provides a much welcome correction to the current distrust of Boards and the organizations they govern. Bravo!' - Mitchell Koza, Dean, Rutgers University School of Business, USA

'A must read for those interested in the role that Boards might play in the vastly different global economy.' - Professor David Hayward, Dean, Swinburn University of Technology, Australia

'A timely and insightful exploration of the impact of national cultures on boardroom behaviour.' - Dr Cliff Bowman, Cranfield School of Management, UK

'An insightful and powerful analysis of the global context of board oversight. Readable and highly relevant to the current day events.' - Professor David Altman, Executive Vice President, Research, Innovation& Product Development, Centre for Creative Leadership
