Effective and efficient board meetings – we can help

By Kieran Colgan · 30 April 2020

The COVID-19 crisis has already led to huge changes, with remote working being the new norm.

The advantages of virtual board meetings have been widely promoted in the press and on social media. Organisational leaders must adapt quickly to hold meetings and make high quality, inclusive decisions remotely.

Running remote meetings isn’t just about video conferencing tools and conference calls – you need to handle papers, agendas, decisions and tasks in a secure (confidential meeting pack details are held behind multiple layers of robust security) and efficient way too (as discussed in this article).

Decision Time Meetings is central to a suite of governance, risk and performance tools. It simplifies meeting management, increases productivity, reduces costs and supports good governance.

Attendees can read and easily annotate documents, assign tasks, share notes and interact with colleagues in a secure online tool.

ARK Consultancy and Decision Time, are funding  access to Meetings until the end of September 2020 for housing providers and local authorities. After that time, you can decide if you want to keep using it, with no obligation to buy.

The system can be set up in 24 hours and contains quick start guides and training videos to get you up and running. To provide additional support we can also deliver free webinar training for meeting organisers / administrators.

For more information please contact Sarah Williams or Kieran Colgan at ARK at swilliams@arkconsultancy.co.uk / kcolgan@arkconsultancy.co.uk
