Connaught Session 03

On 19th May 2016 Chief Officers Group held the third in a series of Chairman & CEO dinners. Sixty guests, made up of a mix of Chairman, CEO and eight PE houses, enjoyed a four-course seasonal menu at The Hélène Darroze Restaurant at The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair.

The theme of the evening was the role of the Chairman and before the event, we asked a group of prominent and respected chairmen, CEOs and private equity professionals to tell us what they believe to be the most and least important qualities of an outstanding chairman. 

The results were not entirely surprising but some interesting observations and clear differences of opinion emerged and the additional comments shed some light on the all-important relationship between chairman and CEO.
