Speaker(s)IMD Prof. Bettina Büchel

Many companies stand to benefit from having more women on their boards and some countries have started to put in place gender quotas to level the board playing field. This means there will be additional opportunities for more women to achieve board membership in the coming years. So, how can women's membership on boards be increased? How can you actively increase your board readiness? Professor Buechel in her presentation will give you concrete tips to prepare yourself for board assignments.  

Bettina Buechel has been Professor of Strategy and Organization at IMD since 2000. She has led both public programs, such as Orchestrating Winning Performance and Strategic Leadership, and custom programs for companies such as Nestlé and Tetra Pak. 
In addition to her work with multinational companies, she is currently an angel investor and works with venture capital firms.
Professor Buechel is of German origin and a Swiss national. She recently led a special event for board-ready women at IMD's High Performance Boards program.

Please note this is a woman only meeting with a smaller audience to allow for maximum interactions, exchange and openness.
