MM&K has conducted this Chairman and Non-Executive Director Survey (Life in the Boardroom) for 26 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.

Content and publication of the survey

The Survey covers:

  • Directors’ fees and time commitments
  • Board effectiveness
  • Board governance (including ESG issues and engagement with investors), as well as the
  • other current Board issues

Participants receive a free copy of the report once published.

The 2019 Life in the Boardroom Report was published in January 2020

This year we have partnered with First Flight, Non-Executive and Chairman Search Firm, and Board Excellence, a specialist board effectiveness and performance practice.

We thank the 260 individuals who contributed. Between them, these directors cover a total of 550 Company board appointments.

The report is free to participants, non-participants may purchase the report.

“Congratulations on a thorough and insightful survey. It fills in something of a gap in coverage of the numerous publications from the large firms in the remuneration consulting space.”
