This month we had our Annual Board Development Day hosted by SwanCare's Chairman, Kim Hocking.
This month SwanCare’s Chairman, Kim Hocking, hosted the Annual Board Development Day where all Board members and the Executive Team joined residents for an afternoon of connection and great conversation. Of course, it wouldn’t be an afternoon at Bentley Park without a game of lawn bowls to finish it off!
SwanCare takes purpose-driven board leadership seriously and believe the only way to ensure we make the best decisions is to hear directly from our residents in the very environment we govern - their home and community.
Did you know, according to Stanford University, only a third of boards (32%) place a high priority on “knowledge of the community served,” and even fewer (28%) place a high priority on “membership within the community of their consumers”? We are proud at SwanCare to have a close and collaborative team, including two consumer representatives on the Board.
Kim said, “Everyone really enjoyed each other’s company, and we enjoy learning from one another on and off the green. It was a great opportunity to come together in this way and as Chair, I was especially pleased to be invited to be a regular on the green by SwanCare resident, Heather!”
