Odgers Berndtson Tokyo office held a breakfast speaking engagement about the “Balance on the Board” by Baroness Virginia Bottomley at The Peninsula Tokyo on Friday, September 22. This event was a joint effort of The Chamber of Commerce in Japan and Odgers Berndtson.

The breakfast speaking engagement was well received by the board of directors and corporate executives from both global and local organisations.

Baroness Virginia Bottomley, head of the Board practice at Odgers Berndtson, spoke the importance of diverse workplace and incorporating views from different cultures, nationalities, personalities and genders. This imperative, she says, is even greater in the boardroom, where organisations facing ever more complex issues also need external, independent perspectives.
