Culture as a Strategic Asset
Feb. 20, 2018
Charlotte, NC


Researchers have explored the link between corporate culture and performance, and the key takeaway is: Healthy cultures pay off. The oversight of culture is, by definition, a key board responsibility - the 2017 NACD Blue Ribbon Panel report on Culture is a call to action for directors to elevate the dialogue on culture (including culture in the boardroom) and help their organizations translate values into value. Please join Mike McGuire, CEO, Grant Thornton LLP for an evening exploring guidance and tools for directors on this topic.

Not-for-Profit vs For-Profit: How Different?
Feb. 21, 2018
Washington, DC


For-profit businesses are increasingly becoming more purpose driven, while not-for-profits are becoming increasingly financially sophisticated. Although the legal obligations of the board members of these two types of organizations are not entirely the same, the financial and fiduciary risks facing directors are very similar. This high-impact session will provide powerful insights into the rapidly changing world of directors in both for-profits and not-for-profits that are striving to deliver exemplary board leadership in these two different legal entities.

Member Price: $65

During this fascinating panel we will learn from two deeply experienced directors from right here in Colorado: Steve Reinemund and Denise O'Leary.

Board Impact on Culture
Feb. 28, 2018
Naples, FL


What impact has culture played in the recent headlines about companies such as Uber and Wells Fargo? What is the board's role in shaping culture and how can it have an impact? Does culture have concrete value for an organization? The recently released NACD Blue Ribbon Commission Report Culture as a Corporate Asset focuses on the importance of directors playing a greater role in the discussion of organizational culture. In the corporate context, culture has been described as "the sum of shared assumptions, values, and beliefs that create the unique character of an organization." Join our outstanding panel of corporate leaders to unpack this conversation. Their experience and expertise serving in leadership roles in the C-suite and the boardroom will make this conversation rich with stories and examples of how the board can influence the culture of your organizations.
