Does this mean board as in board of directors? In which case why are they sitting on a staircase?

Yes, it means "a board of important people" (estro: leader; boss + -ar: a collective suffix, a group of people). They're sitting on the staircase because Dr. No and James Bond were having a "conversation" in the conference room :)
