Oakland, CA (PRWEB) November 15, 2005
At the November 11, 2005 Colloquium for Women Directors, organized by Corporate Women Directors International, directors had the opportunity to preview the first ever on-demand governance and value video series. The soon to be released series of briefings entitled "Corporate Governance and Value: Building a Bridge of Trust™" was demonstrated at the NASDAQ MarketSite to the audience of directors in attendance.
With topics ranging from board functions to value and governance, "Corporate Governance and Value: Building a Bridge of Trust™" includes nationally known business and thought leaders, corporate board members, institutional investors, government officials, senior auditing professionals and executives. The video series is a joint effort of The Value Alliance and Corporate Governance Alliance and AthenaOnline.com and will allow users to find and access critical knowledge on these issues from their desktop computer.
John M. Nash, Founder and President Emeritus of the National Association of Corporate Directors and Principal in the Corporate Governance Alliance, provides his expertise on the series. "I am pleased to share my knowledge and perspectives on this series designed to build a bridge of trust between management and board, shareholders and stakeholders," he states. "The information and perspectives, accessible digitally in this series, are important to the future of director education and building that bridge of trust," he notes.
"There is a tremendous need for people, especially at the senior levels, to get a better understanding of the issues surrounding governance and compliance," says Jon Peters, CEO of AthenaOnline. "This series will go even further to help address that need with information that is not just useful but essential."
"I was pleased to have been invited to present this preview to directors of major corporations at the NASDAQ MarketSite, particularly since the exchange rules that were adopted post Sarbanes-Oxley at NASDAQ and the NYSE have been important steps forward in governance reform," explains Eleanor Bloxham, CEO of The Value Alliance and Corporate Governance Alliance. "At the Colloquium, directors commented on the importance and challenges of continual learning. This series will provide a needed resource for those who wish to continually enhance their understandings, implement the best practices, and build a bridge of trust."
