On the programme this week, we talk about non-executive directors and women in the boardroom.
It’s a well-paid, part-time job that not so long ago consisted mainly of posh meals and tea-soaked meetings in comfortable offices. But this week on the programme our guests argue that being a non-executive director is not as easy as it once was.

From changing CEOs to making tough decisions about pay, the panel discusses what it takes to be a shrewd and effective non-exec.

And in a week that saw the release of the annual Female FTSE report showing that the number of women in top boardrooms is on the decline, we ask what it will take to change the male-dominated management world. Could targets – or even mandatory quotas – be an option?
Evan's guests this week are:

DeAnne Julius
Chairman of Chatham House

Carolyn McCall
Chief Executive of Guardian Media Group

Jasmine Whitbread
Director of Save the Children
About the programme
 
The Bottom Line cuts through the confusion of modern life to find out what's really important to consumers and businesses: the gimmicks, the people, the products - and the relationships.
