Board Talk Webinar: What Boards Should be Talking About Now and the Key Skills Required



At the helm of most companies is a Board whose responsibility is to provide leadership in both prosperous times and in challenging conditions such as today. The role of the Board includes guiding and giving direction to the management in planning its activities, organizing and executing the plans, staffing, directing, coordinating and controlling human efforts to achieve objectives of the Company. Perilous times do not remove or reduce these responsibilities. On the contrary, they should show that they are made of ‘stunner stuff’ and live to tell the story of their steadfastness when pandemics hit their Company. What should companies do? What should be their focus? How do they navigate their companies using the following key elements of good corporate governance? i.e.

  1. Commitment to Good Corporate Governance
  2. Transparency and Disclosure
  3. Shareholders
  4. Stakeholder Interaction
  5. Internal controls

WOBN hosted a Board Talk webinar on 1st May 2020. The Speakers were Corporate Governance practitioners who included her founders and Board members who gave insights on the key elements of corporate governance.
