at The Buckhead Club, produced by NACD Atlanta & KPMG

 

 

The demands on the board’s time and agenda continue to mount as a host of critical issues—from cyber risk and business model disruption, to investor scrutiny and regulatory demands—collides and reshapes the landscape. As business and risk become more complex and interconnected—driven by technology change and innovation, global markets and supply chains, geopolitical risk, and more—the board’s ability to prioritize and devote enough time to substantive issues becomes more vital and challenging. Is the board focusing on the issues that are most material to the company’s success—e.g., strategy, talent, compensation, key performance indicators, and corporate culture—and connecting the critical dots? Is the board taking a hard look at itself to ensure it has the skills, dynamics, leadership, and processes in place to make the most of its time together and position the company for the future?

 

Panelists:

  • Stephen Brown – Senior advisor with KPMG’s Board Leadership Center; previously Head of Corporate Governance at TIAA-CREF
  • Elizabeth (Betsy) Camp – Audit Committee Member and Compensation Committee Chair, Synovus Financial Corp. and Audit Committee Member, Genuine Parts Company
  • Sidney (Sid) Harris – Audit Committee Member, TSYS; Board Chairman, RidgeWorth Funds. Former Board Member of the Multi-Manager Portfolio Funds, The ServiceMaster Company, and Transamerica Investors, Inc.
  • Ric Kimball – Principal, KPMG's Advisory practice (Moderator)

 

KPMG’s Spring Director Roundtable Series—“Focusing on What Counts: How
High-Impact Boards are Connecting Dots and Delivering Value”—will explore how boards are addressing these challenges and continually raising their game as the business and risk landscape redefines what it means to be an effective board.  The Roundtable discussion will focus primarily on a range of important processes or leading practices boards might employ in prioritizing their agendas and ensuring they devote enough time to the critical substantive issues (but will not take a deep dive into substantive issues such as strategy, risk, talent, culture, KPIs, and cyber).
