Record participation for Life in the Boardroom 2021 – MM&K’s exclusive report for Chairs and NEDs.

August 10, 2021


MM&K has been producing this industry leading report for over 26 years. The MM&K analysis team has begun collecting the data for the 2021 survey report and early results indicate a surge in participation with a 28% increase in participant numbers and a 52% increase in the number of appointments, compared to last year’s report. We are pleased to announce that female participation has doubled this year and now represents 22% of the total number of participants.

This comprehensive report is industry leading and fills a gap in the market, offering true insights into individual directors’ views on Board appointment practices and effectiveness. We are looking forward to analysing the results fully to produce the 2021 report.

Extended Deadline

16th August 2021

We are still receiving enquiries from NEDs and Chairs on how to participate. We have therefore extended the deadline for an additional week to give more directors an opportunity to participate and gain free access to this exclusive report. If you would like to find out more, please contact

Margarita Skripina.
