The Board holds a number of regular meetings each year, supplemented by ad hoc meetings from time to time for specific purposes, for example, in connection with specific acquisitions. There are also Board Committees, details of which can be found below the Executive Committee section.

Each year, the Board reviews its performance, the performance of its committees and individual Directors. This is done annually, with the support either of an independent facilitator or the Company Secretary in alternate years. The process involves individual confidential interviews with each Board member and other senior employees. The results of these interviews are reported to the Chairman and made available to the Board for discussion.
