Join NACD, Willis Towers Watson and Womoble Bond Dickinson for a look at current risk topics in the news and on boardroom agendas. The program will include discussion among subject-matter experts and directors of current risk topics: event- driven claims, pay equity, stock price volatility, M & A integration risk, social media, regulatory investigations and inquiries, privacy, and cyber risk
Program is built around the Report of the NACD Blue Ribbon Commission on Building the Strategic-Asset Board and explores how boards can position themselves to capably usher their companies into the future by focusing on continuous improvement. How will directors figure out how they can make themselves strategic assets to the companies they serve? How can directors instill a continuous-improvement ethos into the culture of the boardroom?
