MM&K has conducted this Chair and Non-Executive Director Survey (Life in the Boardroom) for 33 years. It is unique as data is collected directly from Directors themselves, rather than from company staff or annual reports. This provides a more accurate picture of board practices and pay.

MM&K’s exclusive survey of Board Chairs and NEDs, a “must have” for all Non-Executives has now been published.

MM&K has now published its 2023-2024 Life in the Boardroom report, a “must have” for all Non-Executive Directors. The 80+ page unique report provides a detailed and accurate picture from the people who experience life in the boardroom first-hand.

For our 2023-2024 survey, we collected data from 316 participants representing a total of 788 board appointments. The 80+ report includes information on:

  • Directors’ fees
  • Time commitments
  • Board effectiveness
  • Board governance
  • Other current Board issues, including use of technology, ESG and working practices post-COVID-19 pandemic.

Who would benefit from the report?

  • Current NEDs
  • Those aspiring to become NEDs
  • Boards and their HR departments seeking to recruit NEDs
  • Those advising companies on the recruitment and remuneration of NEDs
  • Organisations established to support businesses and their directors.

This year we have partnered with First Flight – the Non-Executive and Chair Search Firm, Women on Boards – the leading network of board ready candidates, NEDA – the Non-Executive Directors Association and Board Excellence – a specialist board effectiveness and performance practice.
