March 27-29, 2017, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
A 3-day Education Program on Corporate Governance for Family Companies
The program is an orientation to corporate governance for family companies.
Participants learn the fundamentals of boards, such as the role and responsibilities of the board, the difference between a board of directors and board of advisors and when to use each, the right agenda for a board, how the board of a family business should interact with and represent the family and owners, the role of the board Chair, how to effectively serve as an independent director and family director, evaluating the board, recruiting and compensating board members, and common pitfalls to avoid when establishing a new board or running an existing board, among other topics.
TODAY’S BUSINESS LANDSCAPE sees an accelerating rate of technological change, unprecedented competition and increased globalization. More than ever before, family companies need high-performing, strategic boards that help the owners think about the company’s future. Having a company that is well-steered by a strong board is a significant advantage for the owners of family companies.
The Building a Worldclass Board for the Family Enterprise program provides an orientation on the fundamentals of boards for family companies.
How would a high-functioning board benefit your company and owners? How do you create a board, manage it, strengthen it or change it to meet the current and future needs of your business? How do you best contribute as a director on a board of a family business? How do you lead a family business board that you chair?
