Blockchain in the Boardroom
During this timely program, entrepreneur, author and speaker Jen Wolfe and E&Y partner and enterprise applications leader Gaurav Malhotra will summarize and highlight the hype about blockchain in layman's terms, why it matters, and what you need to know in the boardroom about how it will affect business throughout various industries.
The #MeToo movement and revelations as recent as last week have created a media flurry, with ensuing public accusations against individuals, companies, and boards alike. Boardrooms, both corporate and non-profit, need to ensure they are discussing this topic before they are forced to actâ€“or react. Directors can no longer afford to claim limited insight into the culture of their companies. They need to proactively address these topics before they become a risk or potential reputational damage that leads straight to value destruction.
Join moderator, Rachel Allen, and your director peers for a fireside chat with NACDâ€™s board recruitment practice leader, Rochelle Campbell, as we explore:
â€¢ How boards can begin these tough conversations,
â€¢ What they should consider when issues arise,
â€¢ The potential removal of perpetrators, and
â€¢ What any replacement may signal to shareholders.
