NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors


Founders shed plenty of blood, sweat, and tears getting their companies starting a business. Once that company hits a revenue threshold of about $250M, having an effective board becomes a key asset to ensuring long-term success. We are increasingly seeing clear links between good governance and robust financial performance over the medium to long term. A failure to focus on boardroom talent and the right processes and controls can lead to a dysfunctional board and a stagnant or failed company.

With a strong board, a company can:

  • Scale the business.
  • Unlock and take advantage of new business opportunities.
  • Enhance financial performance.

Achieve peak corporate performance by ensuring your board is knowledgeable in leading governance practices and has a strong understanding of ethics and compliance. Attending this course will give your company peace of mind and reassure your stakeholders that you have the right people in place to navigate your path to continued growth.

This event is specifically curated for directors of public and private companies that have revenues under $500M. 

Event Date: July 9, 2018
