NACD Directorship 2020: Geopolitical and Economic Trends

Governance challenges are increasingly complicated and volatile—and sometimes corporate America is not sufficiently prepared to handle these situations. To get a better grasp of these challenges, more than 100 directors gathered at the Metropolitan Club in New York for the first of three NACD Directorship 2020 events in 2014. Throughout the year these forums will address various disruptive forces—the major trends and transitions expected to drive significant change for companies and industries in the near future – and the implications for the boardroom. This session specifically addressed geopolitical and economic risks.
