Event Details

The Capital Network Presents:|Choosing & Managing Your Board: Insights from Serial Board Members
Tuesday January 10th, 11:45 - 2:00pm @ LearnLaunch, 281 Summer Street, 2nd Floor, Boston

The way you choose, run and communicate with your board says a lot about how you run your business and showcases what kind of a leader you are. Understanding who and what your business needs as well as what mentorship and development you need is important – as is the way you build trust within the board.
Remember board meetings aren’t simple business updates – nor are they a chore whose sole purpose is to keep investors satisfied. They are an opportunity for you to extract key insights and expertise: Board members are an extension of your team – they have a vested interest in keeping your company growing and succeeding – and it’s up to you to extract the best out of them.
