Building Boards that Really Work

About this Event

Previously, Boards were composed primarily of C-Suite executives who represented the shareholders.

Today, effective boards have a diversity of members from different functions, levels and  backgrounds, and should represent all stakeholders. Board members’ responsibilities are a duty of fiduciary loyalty,  a duty of care to keep up to date, good judgement and oversight of strategy and risk.

Transitioning from an executive role to an effective board member requires stepping back from running the business to providing vision and supervision. New issues, such as ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) are demanding more involvement from board members.
