  • Authentic, unvarnished, and multi-faceted; the insights gleaned, as the chairs reflect on the accelerating pace of change that confronts them and how their practices are evolving to stay ahead.
  • Participants' individual approaches to foundational areas of governance, essential to board effectiveness.
  • The obligations of all directors to engage in continuous improvement.
