Where are the vulnerabilities? What are the interconnections? What are the exposures the Board needs to examine - which will have a material impact on asset values or threaten an enterprises viability?

Critical Collaboration – The Relationship between the Board and the CEO

02/05/2017 3:00:00 PM | Halifax
An effective working relationship between an organization’s Board and its CEO is arguably one of the most critical prerequisites for organizational success. Setting the stage for a strong relationship from the moment the CEO is hired, through to the ongoing pursuit of strategic goals, is inextricably linked to growth and success. In this session, our panelists will discuss elements of a great Board-CEO relationship. Further, they will share experiences, perspectives and stories in tackling issues and challenges as they have aspired to advance their respective organizations. We are fortunate to have four exceptional panelists and a moderator, all of whom have been on both sides of the fence on this important issue.
