The Outstanding Directors Exchange (ODX) conference is now in its 17th year and continues to be the gold standard for director education and community. Attendance is limited exclusively to sitting public company directors, and participants must abide by a code of confidentiality to encourage the kind of sharing that truly helps directors do their jobs better.

This year, ODX will tackle both economic recovery and cultural change. Companies are emerging from the crisis with both increased operational and financial flexibility and greater clarity around the cultural (non-financial) areas of the business that need more attention. Attend ODX to gain insight on how fellow directors are working to ensure their companies are well-positioned for the future.
