Applicable to owners, executives, directors and their respective trusted advisors, BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 examines the most common questions around private company governance.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) May 31, 2018
More and more privately-held companies are exploring the benefits of effective corporate governance and, consequently, are working towards formalizing board processes. This trend has been driven in part by the ever-increasing pressure that companies face from foreign competitors and increasing government regulation. The demographic wave of the huge number of businesses whose leadership is getting ready to retire and which, therefore must engage in succession planning is another significant factor.
Yet, many private companies delay implementing a more formalistic governance regime or simply do not understand they even need it. The BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 Financial Poise webinar series discusses various aspects of good governance in private companies. Applicable to owners, executives, directors and their respective trusted advisors, this webinar series brings a variety of experiences and perspectives on the most common questions around private company governance.
The first episode of the series, The Role of the Board in a Private Company, airs on June 4th at 11:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Kristi Daeda of The Family Business Consulting Group. She is joined by Ellen Griggs of E. Ritter & Company/Evanston Capital Management/Market Street Trust Company, Kelly LeCouvie of The Family Business Consulting Group, Charlie Leichtweis of Process Solutions Inc., and Jeremy Waitzman of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger.
Private company owners, including family businesses, ESOPs, and private equity owners, often have different expectations for their boards than is common in publicly traded firms. Besides being much less encumbered by regulatory compliance, many private firms are looking for a completely different kind of engagement from directors. In companies with new boards, leaders and directors often struggle early on to determine the role of the board and how to separate board responsibilities from those of ownership and management. In this webinar, the audience will learn what companies are really looking for (or should be) from their boards, and the many ways that boards contribute to private company success.
