On October 7, Béatrice Richez-Baum, Secretary General of ecoDa, spoke at a roundtable discussion organized by Guberna on boards' composition. 

"There is a tendency to bring on board more and more people with specific expertise: expertise in audit, expertise in cybersecurity and digitalization...

There is also a tendency to bring on board more and more people that represent different interests: interests of employees and - maybe tomorrow - minority shareholders

We can wonder what will be the impacts on the group dynamic and the collegiality of boards?

Are we going to prevail expertise rather than experience?

We can wonder also if we are not turning boards into technical bodies rather than giving them the possibility to focus on strategy? "
