Being a good chairman

Sir Martin Broughton has been one of the UK’s busiest chairmen over the past year - chairing the boards of both British Airways and Liverpool FC during a turbulent period of industrial unrest, strikes and ownership battles. Sir Martin, deputy chairman of International Airlines Group, created by the merger of BA and Iberia last year, discusses with Peter Whitehead, FT Non-Executive Directors’ Club editor, how he prioritises his time, communicates with the board and other parties, and how he feels about boardroom diversity.
