NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors

Event Detail

The job of the director is to help foster the growth and sustainability of the enterprise. Increasingly, that means being well versed in how external forces might affect the company. Technology innovations and a dynamic, global marketplace are creating new competitors that may be able to do what you do better and faster. Business models once considered rock solid are becoming obsolete, and a new generation of consumers is emerging that has different needs, demands, and expectations.

The NACD Future Trends event will equip you with the information you need to keep your company on track for growth.
