WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM UNIQUE
Our Board Professional Program is for aspiring and current board members who want to increase their ability to engage meaningfully in discussions of leading-edge topics, ask sharper questions easily, delve to the core of critical issues, and improve proportional impact in a boardroom to create more shareholder value – not just conceptually, but tangibly by helping management think more critically about decisions.
TOPICS AND CONTENT
This program has two components.
INITIAL ORIENTATION – assessment and personal one-on-one video call with a Boardwise expert.
Participants complete an online Board BonaFide® assessment to establish current board readiness. In addition, you have a one-hour private session with a board expert coach to review your profile, discuss what type of board is the best match and explore suggestions for achieving your goal of serving on a board.
GOVERNANCE EDUCATION SESSIONS – live educational sessions online.
The live interactive program consists of nine two-hour sessions. The modules include presentations and interviews with experts on governance and the hot topics which directors must address today, including governance differences among countries, cybersecurity, risk management and decision-making, artificial intelligence, strategic designs, financial foundations, and emerging challenges in digital transformation and diversity.
Each session includes interviews with topic experts, facilitated presentations related to director duties and care on the topic, and experiential board exercises based on real-world situational cases used for board simulations and discussion. In addition, homework assignments are provided a week before each session for participants to read and prepare.
