Current and future board members must learn how to deal with disruptive times that bring complex oversight challenges. Demands for transparency, accountability, regulatory compliance, efficiency, corporate strategy involvement, value creation, sustainability, board dynamics, remuneration, etc., are continually increasing. A deeper understanding of the role, tasks and responsibilities of the board is needed to cope with the increasing demands of these topics. Join us to update your knowledge of the complex world of board members that face 2021 and the future.

During the course, delegates will spend four days discussing the best and latest Harvard Business cases on Corporate Governance. Skills essential to governance excellence in today’s business landscape are deliberated. The focus will be on maximizing the board’s potential and the differences in management of companies in the Netherlands and the US. All important aspects of board governance will be addressed, varying from external governance in global finance, legal and regulatory institutional frameworks, to governance inside the top layers of corporations and family businesses.

Who will benefit

Many executives and vice presidents of large companies participated in past editions of the program. For them, the importance of understanding new corporate governance, has proven to be extremely useful when intending to expand business ventures, navigating complexity, risks and uncertainty, and not in the least developing leadership tools.

“This class does an excellent job for senior business leaders to understand new corporate governance, the dynamics between the CEO, the Chairman and other members of the Board and to understand how audit, corporate governance nominating & compensation and risk management committees can function best. It makes it easy to appreciate board, executive team and shareholder perspectives in a US and European setting.”
