Workshop Descriptions

Getting Board-Ready Workshops

The purpose of the Getting Board-Ready workshops is to help women gain insights and learn about the skills they need to prepare for board opportunities. These half-day workshops will be facilitated by corporate directors and governance experts. They will share their experiences to empower women to become more confident in order to lead and serve on boards.

What Attendees are saying about “Getting Board-Ready” Workshops: 

The topic was well presented and I enjoyed hearing Sari’s and Deborah’s stories from the boardroom. Definitely real stories from the boardroom.

Liked that the session was small, intimate group, and informal. Nice pace.

I have really enjoyed the course so far and actually put an “in camera ” session into my Bentley board meeting on Monday and it was very beneficial.
~Joanne Nemeroff, Senior Vice President, Holt Renfrew/Ogilvy, Montreal Market

For me the most valuable take away was the need to set expectations (both sides): understand what they want before joining. I also found the breakdown of the various types of Boards insightful. I really appreciated that Kelly and Deborah had key points they wanted to get across but the flow of the discussion allowed for lots of questions. The venue was superb. Well done!
~ Lisa Courtney Lloyd, Vice President, Marketing at Colonnade Investments

What Attendees are saying about the Compensation Governance Workshop: 

Such a high-value workshop with so many great takeaways. Looking forward to the next one!
~ Jennifer Bouyoukos,  Senior Vice President, Human Resources, NexJ Systems

[It] was a BRILLIANT session – I left that meeting knowing that there are people who do things or at least try to do things “right”! Paul is very good, clear and concise.

I found the workshop very insightful!

Just want to reiterate how useful I found the session. Even though there was a good deal I knew there were a number of new learnings for me.
