Exclusive to public company directors and executives working closely with the board, this event has successfully fostered a unique environment for participants to network with peers who have walked in their shoes—delivering a learning experience you won’t find elsewhere. 

INSPIRING SPEAKERS

WHY ATTEND

Add more value to your board.

Board leadership is being redefined and directors must be more than just monitors of management in today’s fast-paced, complex economy. Gain advice from seasoned advisors to help you cut through the complexities and contribute more in the boardroom.

Share strategies with other exemplary board leaders.

The Boardroom Summit is exclusive to public company board members and executives, which means you’ll be networking specifically with your peers–providing learning opportunities you won’t find at other events.

Improve your board’s strategic contributions.

Digital disruption, cybersecurity, human capital oversight, ESG and the global supply chain are just a few of the risks the Summit agenda will tackle. Hear how experienced directors work effectively with their management teams to advise, assess, and monitor strategy and risks.

Address committee-specific challenges.

Participate in committee-focused peer exchanges for a unique chance to collaborate with other directors on the distinct responsibilities of the audit, compensation or nominating/governance committee.

Exceed shareholder expectations.

Boards face new pressures and demands from various stakeholder groups amid heightened expectations for societal engagement and corporate citizenship. Hear directly from investors to gain a better understanding of the new shareholder engagement and activist landscape.

Take advantage of peer networking.

Don’t miss the opportunity to connect online with old colleagues and meet new director peers with ample time for interaction built into the agenda through our breakout sessions and peer exchanges.
