The NACD 2019 Corporate Governance Survey highlighted that although ESG issues are currently a low priority for many boards, most directors would like their boards to be more proactive and embrace ESG oversight.
Is Your Board Climate Smart? will address these concerns.
Disruptive forces impact every industry. According to Fortune, 89% of Fortune 500 companies from 60 years ago have either gone bankrupt, merged with (or were acquired by) another firm, or still exist but have fallen off the list.
Boards face an increasing number of challenges in helping companies navigate a myriad of complex issues. They are in need of current thought leaders who can provide meaningful input in the boardroom. The composition of skill sets needed for boards is changing, and boards are recognizing the need to "refresh." Board candidates need to be prepared to explain their value proposition for a potential board seat.
Join us for a lively discussion to gain guidance on the following important questions:
â€¢ What skills are most needed in the boardroom?
â€¢ How do I project my skill sets on paper or in person?
â€¢ How do I find out about potential board seats?
â€¢ What educational programs, or other events, should I attend to better prepare myself for a board seat?
This program will discuss the challenges facing boards, the skills required in todayâ€™s boardrooms, and the best way for board candidates to present themselves during the interview process. Attending this program will help you better understand the complexities of the boardroom and learn ways to project yourself as a future board leader.
As today's business environment continues to rapidly evolve, organizations are facing disruptive forces more frequently and on a larger scale. Increasingly becoming regular events across industries, these disruptions - including emerging technology, new market entrants, M&A, joint ventures, activist investors, and geopolitical actions - are increasing the need for more advanced and agile risk management practices at all levels of the organization, particularly internal audit.
During this session, we will explore internal audit's role in addressing disruptive events and the value internal audit can provide to management and the board during times of disruption. This program promises stimulating conversation and valuable networking for board members, audit committees, CFOs, and internal auditors on this important and timely topic.
