How to beef up your board

This year’s theme is The year of the turnaround, so you’re guaranteed a roomful of business brains with exactly the smarts to get your firm out of the red.

The speaker panel includes:

Peter Chappelow, chairman of the travel business that owns Travelsphere and Page & Moy, and formerly turnaround CEO of Holiday Cottages.

Gary Favell, one of the UK’s most experienced retail executives, who led the ultimately doomed management buy-out of MFI, having previously been the CEO of Magnet and Wyevale Garden Centres.

Ian, whose CV ranges from Golden Wonder to Tottenham Hotspur, and whose managerial experience includes dealing with French factory strikes and NHS Trusts, is widely regarded as one of the UK’s pre-eminent turnaround specialists.

Tony Lochery, the former group managing director of Kwik-Fit and credited with its expansion into Europe and managing the transition from plc to Ford subsidiary. Tony then became CEO of City Holdings, a privately-owned, £225m facilities management company employing more than 10,000 people.
