The Board's Role in Driving Innovation
Equilar, Nasdaq and NACD are excited to host a one-day educational program for public company board members, general counsel and corporate secretaries.
In order to remain competitive in today’s ever-changing, global business landscape, boards must keep their fingers on the pulse of innovation and strategy. Meanwhile, the rise of activist settlements and the continued emphasis on board refreshment and succession planning are reshaping the way boardrooms operate.
The goal of the Board Leadership Forum is to empower participants to build higher performing boards through strengthened evaluations and recruitment, as well as improved engagement with their shareholders.
