About this event

The scope and demands of the Modern Board of Directors has evolved tremendously in the last five years. Boards are finding themselves having to cover a range of topics and relationships far beyond those of the past. They now engage more deeply in the organization, and outside the organization. And, they must rapidly organize and collaborate to address a growing number of dynamic business and societal interests. Boards need to think beyond the Board Book, and beyond the 4 meetings a year, to the ecosystem of management and structure that allows them to function with organization, dynamism and good effect across the constant and evolving governance role they play.

As an active board member and the CEO of a company that provides a board success platform to enable the change from shareholder governance to stakeholder governance, Marion Lewis has had a front-row seat to the evolution of the modern board and the complexity that boards now operate under. She will share what she has learned from Govenda's over 30,000 customers and share ingredients for board success in this new world of stakeholder governance.
