During 2020, boards were needing to shift their focus to the short-term and the immediate to ensure their survival.

As Australia and the world begin the slow recovery from the global pandemic, organisations find themselves now operating in an environment with more uncertainty for example: the long-term effects of COVID-19, the shifting geo-political balance and the possible effects of climate change. These are not just “big business” issues, they effect all organisations and individuals in every sector.

If uncertainty is to be considered as a ‘new normal’ what are the medium and long-term strategies that boards need to contemplate to ensure they remain sustainable in the future?

Join us as we hear from leading directors as they discuss:

  • What are the key uncertainties that boards are facing?
  • The questions boards need to consider ensuring they are sustainable in 10-20 years’ time
  • Impact of the shifting geo-political balance – especially the Australia-China relationship
  • Impact of climate change on boards and what do boards need to consider from a risk and opportunity perspective.
