Dynamic Board Series – Adelaide: Session 2 | The role of the independent advisor

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.

Family and private company directors often lack the necessary diversity of skills to create proper governance and to make good decisions. Independent advisors can help, but this may place the advisor at risk.
This session will explore:

  • How to choose and structure an advisory board?
  • What are the limitations on the advisor’s role?
  • What are the risks for liability?
  • How do family businesses create the structures, and have the discussions, necessary to survive beyond the second generation?
