‘Governance arguably suffers most … when boards spend too much time looking in the rear-view mirror and not enough scanning the road ahead’ - McKinsey Quarterly
The start of the new decade has seen profound global changes with seismic events such as Brexit, the Trump presidency and COVID-19 as well as huge innovations and technological advancements.
This session, the second in a series of three sessions designed to support global directors, will consider the leadership required of global boards in a world that is changing at an increasingly rapid pace, the skills and expertise boards need, board composition considerations and the evolving role of the global board.
The panel will discuss future considerations, including:
- What skills will be needed on global boards in 2021 and beyond, and how can boards upskill and recalibrate?
- What role does education play? Can directors simply upskill or are a wave of new directors needed?
- How can boards balance preparing for the future (and giving time to visionary thinking) with their compliance and other governance responsibilities?
- What are the considerations for directors serving on boards across different countries, each with their own jurisdictions?
- How will board responsibilities change and how can boards anticipate truly black swan events like Covid-19?
- Carolyn Chin-Parry MAICD, Board Director, Chief Digital Officer & Woman of the Year 2019 - Women in IT Asia Awards
