Boards are one of the most common sources of frustration for many CEOs. While a
well-built, functioning board can be a big asset for any CEO, many fall short of ideal.
Regardless, CEOs are charged with leading the firm and the board, and getting what
they and the business needs from the board is paramount.
Bring your board-related situation and hear the collective wisdom of other CEOs &
Founders around the table as they discuss your or other attendee’s situations as case
studies. Showcase your experience as you offer approaches to the situations other
attendees bring.
