We’ve established a Digital Advisory Board. They’re a small and carefully selected group of individuals with a wide-ranging set of skills which will bolster and complement each other and our own to ensure we’re on the right track and doing the right things.
There’s a lot to do to support our family of businesses and to deliver our digital approach. This isn’t something we’ve attempted before, so we need a little help in the form of some world-class expertise and experience to add to our own ideas and plans.
The Board is advisory, so it’s not part of our governance or decision-making structure and is in addition to the support we receive from our Members’ Council. They’ll review our planned activities and the wider digital marketplace, providing scrutiny, recommendations and guidance.
They’ll meet every 2-3 months, with the first meeting to take place later this year.
The founding members of our digital advisory board are;
- Andrew Eland – Engineering director, DeepMind Health
- Jeni Tennison – CEO, the Open Data Institute
- Jonathan Luff – Co-founder and partner, Epsilon Advisory Partners
- Sophie Fenwick-Paul – Digital and community strategist and consultant
We may add a few more members to the Board if we feel there are specific skills and experience we need access to, and we’ll continue to maintain an equal gender split (plus or minus one member if there’s an odd number).
We want to deliver the very best value to our members and the communities we serve, so we believe having some experts keeping an eye on us to help us do this is a good idea.
