About This Course:
For board members, corporate governance today is a battleground between different interests. Investors demand better results and regulators add ever-increasing layers of legal danger and paperwork. And then there is management, with whom the board must shape a sometimes friendly, sometimes contentious relationship.

Yet boards are discovering that they can't wrestle with these big issues until they shape a strong foundation of the little issues. These are the basics of good boardsmanship: effective meetings; strong board leadership; power agendas that use every minute to the max; smart board committee structures; streamlined board info that informs without overwhelming; controls that keep the board well informed.

Ralph Ward's "Boardroom Best Practice" webinar delivers on this need with a tight, 90-minute live webinar of real-world tools, models and ideas that help any board do a better job of oversight, in less time and with less effort.
