Global Governance Expert and Confident Governance Chairman Bhavesh Bhagat will speak on leveraging latest strategies in Environmental Social & Corporate Governance (ESG) for infusing Sustainable and Resilient growth execution at the NACD 2018 Global Board Leaders’ Summit on Oct. 2nd 2018 in Washington D.C.

The panel discussion where Bhavesh will be joining fellow Board of Directors from other Industry Verticals around the world, will focus on how Environmental Social and Governance factors influence Business growth. In recent times, a strong correlation has emerged between the incorporation of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) concerns into strategy and improved long-term Corporate Performance. At a time when the Risk Universe is expanding at a rapid pace, geo-political and environmental uncertainties are constantly looming and new Compliance mandates and Regulations are continuously imposed by Regulatory bodies, this panel discussion is designed to have a global perspective on how Directors can efficiently meet these increased responsibilities of dealing with activists, staying ahead of Technology and Risk Management and the continuing churn of M&A.

“Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) concerns are increasingly positioned at the top of the Board agendas. However they must be viewed with the background of enabling Sustainable and Resilient growth. Accelerating performance in ESG is vital because when approached with a competitive and innovative mindset, the challenges are future oriented requiring rapid innovation in Technology. I’m excited to share our insights on this subject with fellow Board member colleagues from around the world. We are in the midst of Global geopolitical and economic cycles being in flux making it all the more important for Boards and our other fellow Directors to not lose sight of the 'long game,'" said Confident Governance Chairman Bhavesh Bhagat, who has been a part of many global panel discussions and has also keynoted at International Conferences with the IIA, ISACA and ACFE on subject matters like Leadership, Agility, Governance, Cyber Security, Automation, Emerging Technologies, Risk Management, Cloud Computing, and Creative Leadership.

Besides being a Board Leader Bhavesh is a 2nd Dan Black Belt Taekwondo Martial Artist and an Indian Classical musician focusing on percussion and vocals.
