Topic: "Governance successes and failures around the world" by IMD Professor Didier Cossin.
Corporate boards are failing around the world.
From the financial crisis to major disasters such as the BP Macondo field explosion or the Tepco nuclear disaster in Japan, boards are under stress. At the same time, the rise of economic, social and business complexity makes effective boards even more of a competitive advantage for well managed companies than in the past.
Today's CEOs need sparring partners to help them confront all the challenges they face. And who better to play this role than a strong, well informed, well connected board? We will look at examples of successes and failures around the world and analyze what makes some boards a liability and others a true competitive asset.
IMD Professor will be joined by business leaders from Italy, who will share their thoughts.
Please note that this event is by invitation only, and that there is no participation fee.
