Board advisory

Governance and Leadership are needing to adapt ahead of a fast-moving curve. When even the arch-conservative ASX Corporate Governance Council (Principles and Recommendations edition 4) observes boards' needs to engage with a raft of emerging issues... it's definitely time for change.

Danny will lead the discussion on how the very best performers are staying on top of social licence, culture, conduct risk, digital disruption, cyber-security, knowledge-economy, sustainable development, short-termism, loss-of-trust, wage growth, climate and the ongoing future flow of emerging risks and opportunities to lead great high performing companies of the future.

This will be set in the context of the leading edge of global thinking for enhanced governance, global investor demands, and regulation. And, Danny will outline how to lead Sustained Value-Creation, from the board in an era of unprecedented volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
