Boards, Tech Disruption,
and the Pandemic

A one-hour live event
11 August, 2020
9am PDT /  12pm EDT / 5pm BST / 6pm CEST

How can boards tackle tech disruption and the pandemic at the same time?   

To better understand how enterprises are navigating the pandemic, we have to start with the board. 

Corporate boards are facing unprecedented difficulties. Before Covid-19 arrived, enterprises were already working to meet the challenge of technology disruption. Many were undergoing a transformation effort. These efforts must now be accelerated, but organizations are under more stress and may have fewer resources. Boards must preserve short-term value amid tremendous uncertainty while ensuring long-term viability.

In this session we explore how boards
can better meet this challenge. 

We will discuss:

  • The impact of the Social Distancing Economy
  • Transformation: Best practices for boards
  • How hands-on should boards be in the current crisis?
  • The role of the Board Chair in a time of crisis
  • Do we need different directors in a crisis?
  • What new opportunities should boards consider?
  • What boards must ask from management
  • Short-term crisis versus long-term value creation
Submit your own questions during the event!

  • Investors (PE, VC, CVC, LP)
