Douglas Board (1975)  

Douglas Board has enjoyed a backstage pass into Britain’s power bases for 30 years. For more than two decades a gatekeeper for some of the country’s high places, in 2010 he received a doctorate in how we choose leaders. He has been a leader himself and is currently a coach for a number of senior executives.

Douglas received a first-class honours degree in mathematics from Cambridge University, followed by a scholarship to Harvard for his master’s. After working in Whitehall he joined Saxton Bampfylde, a leading UK executive search firm, of which he became deputy chairman. He was a trustee, and then treasurer, of the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, and for six years chaired Britain’s largest refugee charity, the Refugee Council. Currently he is one of the five non-legal members of the Queen’s Counsel Selection Panel; the Church of England’s external adviser in renewing its selection process for priests-in-training; and an honorary senior visiting fellow at the business school of City, University of London.

He lives in London and, when possible, in Johannesburg. He usually says that he has published four books (all on leadership – two applied research books and two satirical novels) but in truth his first published book, in Hong Kong at the age of nineteen, was a maths textbook. He likes to explain things.

Douglas’ new book, Elites, is out now
