Boards Renewal for Transformational Governance

27-28 September 2019, Fontainebleau

Overview

Relentless waves of technological evolution, from big data to artificial intelligence and machine learning, coupled with turbulent shifts in geopolitical and global economic powers, are putting corporate governance and boards under intense pressure.

Conventional governance models and perpetual boards are no longer sustainable today. There is a growing call for renewal in the boardrooms to capacitate board directors to influence corporate cultures, and instil the competencies and skillsets required by the new challenges. Boards of directors need to be innovated and at times even disrupted to change the course of their organizations in times of change. They ought to possess the acumen to detect risks, anticipate opportunities and equip themselves to navigate through the uncertainties while creating long-term stakeholders’ value.

Held on 27-28 September 2019, the two-day corporate governance thought leadership forum addresses the latest developments of the new order by examining the global macroeconomics and technological landscape and provide a unique platform to learn, share and network. There will be open discussions on how boards can systematically anticipate and drive effective transformation to stay ahead of the curve.

Join us, as we bring together distinguished knowledge experts, board directors and top executives for a stimulating governance exchange, engage on how directors can bring about organizational transformation and leverage boardroom leadership renewal to tackle the challenges arising from the new forces.

On the evening of Friday 27 September, we will celebrate the Award Ceremony of our newly certified Directors in Corporate Governance in Amphi A followed by cocktail party and dinner at Château de Fontainebleau. The event is open to all former participants of INSEAD Corporate Governance Programmes and INSEAD Alumni.
