Why You Should Attend

Board of Directors: Leadership, Culture and Governance

Over the past year, board of directors continue to face increasing scrutiny from shareholders and regulators, and the consequences of failures became more serious in terms of regulatory enforcement, shareholder litigation and market reaction.

Today’s boards are getting the message and idea of transformation in adapting to the digital age. They have the innate ability to move with speed and agility, vision and desire, and the will to get the job done. Your board’s performance speaks volumes in your organisation and retrospective decisions can undoubtedly cause a shakeup in the boardroom.

Join us in the 2-day Board of Director’s conference featuring transformative session that will help you evolve into a proactive and tech-savvy Boardroom spokesperson. Enhance your role in getting your boardroom leadership ready successfully by participating and exploring some of the key themes as below:-

·         Environment, Social and Governance (ESG): How Board’s Should Respond to Stakeholders 

·         Boardrooms in the Digital Age: It’s About Doing Better, Not More!

·         Endorsing Gender Diversity: True Values and Contribution of Women on Boards
