  • What makes a great board? – Ways to assess the effectiveness of a board’s culture, dynamics and behaviour
  • Shareholder engagement and its effects on target companies – An award-winning study showed that companies successfully engaged by EOS exhibited a lower risk profile, particularly when environmental issues are tackled
