What Participants Can Expect:

This method of “Socratic Dialogue” has proven an effective way for directors to hone their skills in real-time, and share what’s worked and what hasn’t in given situations. Rather than sit in the audience, participants are around a board table with 20-25 peers, working through board issues with expert discussion guidance.

The day includes the opportunity to participate in three separate Roundtable discussions on key board issues, built around hypothetical governance situations. 

These issues may include:

  • CEO and Executive Compensation
  • Digital Strategy
  • Corporate Internal Investigations
  • Board and CEO Alignment or Misalignment
  • CEO Succession
  • Crisis Management and Communication
  • Dealing with Activist Investors
  • M&A Strategy
  • Other key topics that boards face.

Each discussion is led by one or more experts on the topic. Key takeaways from each session will be recorded and distributed to attendees following the event.


What Participants Receive:

  • Socratic discussion and peer learning on three key board issues
  • Expert guidance and advice
  • Peer networking
  • Breakfast, lunch and networking breaks
