Board culture: building resilience to systemic shocks

Registration is now open

During today’s uncertainties, communication, collaboration and building a culture are the key elements to ensure organisations are prepared to overcome and recover from a crisis. While management teams focus on making rapid decisions to protect stakeholders, boards need to balance oversight of the crisis response with thinking beyond the immediate challenges. To manage a change of this scale and a crisis of this magnitude successfully, boards need to help management balance short-term priorities with long-term goals, actively engage with shareholders and other stakeholders, and support a fundamental rethinking of long-term strategies. Management teams may need boards to extend them a greater-than-normal level of trust so that leaders can rapidly respond to unprecedented conditions. Never before have CEOs and their teams been more in need of the foresight and seasoned judgment that a well-functioning board of directors can provide.

A board’s performance speaks volumes within an organisation and retrospective decisions can undoubtedly cause a shakeup in the boardroom. This exclusive webinar will help shape your board into a powerful fiduciary as it addresses the key themes below.

Webinar Agenda Includes:

  • Strengthen preparedness and resilience to crisis capability
  • Stepping up the company’s mainstream reporting in an integrated manner
  • Building a positive boardroom chemistry with strong culture, composition and governance in place
  • Mindful Communication: The essence on why long-term thinking is the best short-term strategy
