Mastering the Boardroom During COVID 19 Crisis – Online Workshop

Why is it important?

COVID 19 has changed the dynamics of the entire planet. Corporations around the globe today find themselves at a scary flash point in the governance of their companies. For top business executives and board members, these times bring great uncertainty. Some countries have shaped corporate governance rules and mandates that are indeed world class… but the governance reality is struggling to catch up. Besides, during these times where social distancing has become a norm, corporate boards need to understand how and what they need to do to take their board meetings online.

What if your board could actually be a powerful tool for shaping strategy, building business opportunities, networking and valuable advice? What if the membership, structure, and work of your directors could turbocharge results, foster rising executive talent, and impress investors?

This premier masterclass workshop will feature in-depth discussions on how the “corporate board” model took over the world, the basic elements of corporate governance, the special dangers boards face today, the tips and tools that help your board do more, better, with less time . In addition, the presenter, Ralph Ward, would also deliver a special session revealing the secrets of how to effectively take your board meetings online.
