Building a Strong, High-Functioning Board: Updated Skills for Forward-Looking Businesses (Recording)

Tuesday, September 14, 2021, 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET

The legal requirements for structuring boards are fundamental, but the environment that companies are operating in currently is extremely complex. Stakeholder expectations are changing rapidly and there are different, important business considerations impacting how boards should be structured.

To help your clients create effective, thriving work groups, you need the tools to help them find a robust and collaborative group of board members. Go beyond the basics and boost your skill set with insights from experts on:

  • Who are the key players? Keeping a wider view of the business and who should be included
  • Assessing the composition of a modern board: size, gender, diversity and more
  • Creating a culture of trust, candor and open dissent
  • Strategies for bringing together members with agile and nimble skill sets
  • Recruiting processes to ensure ongoing effectiveness and renewal
  • Evaluating board performance: the latest considerations
  • Selecting and rewarding corporate leaders: guiding boards and compensation committees in light of increased scrutiny and “say on pay”
