The NACD Blue Ribbon Commission identifies how boards can play an active role in shaping corporate culture to promote growth and avoid crisis. This program was an interactive insiders look at the new 2017 Report of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Culture as a Corporate Asset. We were fortunate to host one of the co-chairs of the Report, Nick Donofrio for this highly anticipated publication. Local board leadership fellow and corporate director, Nora Denzel, was moderator. This subject will continue to be one of the most important topics facing companies and boards this year.
Attendees joined Scott Kupor, COO of Andreessen Horowitz and Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, board member, entrepreneur and former Google and Amazon executive as they discussed the technology trends disrupting companies today and what board members should do to educate themselves to help inform strategic discussion in the board room.
The new tax and regulatory environment in 2017 demanded greater strategic thought from corporate directors. Attendees learned about the pace and extent of change and discussed the implications to business growth and boards of directors in the current landscape of regulations.
