09/23/2021 9:00am09/23/2021 10:00 amAmerica/Los_Angeles101 - Board Basics: The Role and Value of an Advisory BoardCEOs are often tasked with achieving their goals with minimal resources. Having a team of experts on-call to advise and guide can be essential for your company's growth and market credibility. The board of advisors provides feedback on existing or future products and services, as well as a safe place for the CEO or executives to develop new ideas. It can also provide a stepping stone to a board directorship.  Karen Cone serves on multiple advisory boards, is a board director, and is a former CEO and corporate executive. Join this engaging discussion as she shares her experiences and learnings on the role and value of an Advisory Board.Virtual

This discussion will be gently guided by Athena coach, Tissa Richards, and Athena member, Sheila Rege. However, most of the conversation will take place in small breakout groups. You are the main attraction! This event is invite-only. Please reach out to [email protected] if you would like to be considered.Virtual
