Dynamic Board Series – Adelaide: Session 1 | Encouraging dynamic discussions in the boardroom

The Dynamic Board series returns in 2020 for its fifth year!

Volatile business environments, demand for continual growth, greater stakeholder scrutiny, disruptive technologies and regulatory changes are just some of the pressures facing today’s boards. Now more than ever, boards need to adapt to the changing landscape of the modern board.

Our four-part seminar series designed to assist board members improve their performance and position their organisation to meet today’s challenges. Each session will feature a panel comprising prominent industry leaders and Piper Alderman industry experts.

In governance, good boards spend a lot of time working on issues such as tenure, size and diversity. How much consideration is given to the quality of board discussion? This session will explore ideal director behaviours which encourage the highest quality discussions and decision making process. Drawing on the research and writings of Richard LeBlanc and James Gillies (“Inside the Board”), we consider how functional and dysfunctional director behaviours can make or break a company.
