Introduction To Board Readiness Forum

Introduction

Corporate Boards perform better when they include the best people who come from a range of perspective and backgrounds.

The boardroom is where strategic decisions are made, governance applied, and risk is overseen. It is therefore imperative that boards are made up of competent high calibre individuals who together offer a mix of skill, experience, and background. The importance of improving diverse skills and competencies of corporate boards is increasingly recognized across the world.

This forum is designed to advance your board management and leadership.

You will have the opportunity to explore best practices and new research, share insights, compare experiences and try out new ideas with an exceptional group of seasoned board leaders.
