The Boardroom Summit will cover the full gamut of board-level issues, from risk oversight and shareholder engagement to the board's hand in culture, cyber security and compensation, and the breadth of corporate governance topics in between. Featuring the original Board Committee Peer Exchange, the event is specifically developed for public company directors and the members of management working closely with them to tackle today's greatest board leadership and governance challenges.

A mix of energizing keynote interviews, thought-provoking panels featuring sitting directors, interactive and engaging breakouts, and roll-up-your-sleeves committee workshops will ensure participants gain actionable best practices and guidance to make an immediate impact in their boardrooms.
