You’re up against thousands of other qualified board candidates for that coveted board seat. To stand out in the crowd, your communication tools must exude the same level of excellence as your qualifications. This interactive workshop will provide tangible ways to strengthen your board bio and LinkedIn profile, as well as help you create a plan to unleash the potential of your extended network. You’ll have the opportunity to finetune your personal value proposition and share it with other participants for feedback.
As boards continue to navigate competitive pressures and emerging risks, the people sitting around the board table have never been more important. At the same time, the spotlight on board diversity remains bright, and today’s boards are being forced to assess their current board makeup and evaluate changes. But it’s critical that, in doing so, boards avoid a check-the-box or episodic approach and address board refreshment in a strategic fashion.
This panel will share tactics to improve your board’s processes to identify current and potential skill gaps as the starting point for the board composition conversation. And then you’ll gain new solutions to old director recruitment “problems” — looking at how the new director profile is evolving, moving beyond traditional board candidates and developing methods to boost the pipeline of qualified directors.

Today’s new board members are more likely to be younger, more diverse and arriving in the boardroom with little to no existing board experience. Effective boards understand that making onboarding a priority is a vital piece of governance. It’s incumbent upon boards to facilitate a structured process that acclimates new directors and positions them to make meaningful contributions early in their tenure.
This panel will explore little-known obstacles and creative solutions to onboarding new board talent. You’ll learn progressive approaches to getting new directors up to speed and contributing quickly.

What’s the biggest obstacle to creating a high-performing board? Derailed discussions, dismissed opinions, side conversations, and dominating personalities pop up in every boardroom. Each director brings his or her own habits, preferences, past experiences, and individual biases that all impact the board’s culture and decision-making. How do you create a board culture that supports candid conversations and enhances each individual director’s performance and contributions?
This panel will help you understand the important dynamics involved in creating a well-functioning board and learn how to overcome barriers like groupthink and common, unintentional biases.
