Our focus is senior leaders getting to meet other senior leaders while discussing governance matters that relate to public and private companies.
Most of our meetings use a case-centered framework.
Participants are given the case in advance. Once the Zoom meeting starts, participants are randomly assigned to groups of three. They have time to get to know each other and to discuss the case.
The full group is then brought together to discuss the case under the guidance of the person who wrote the case.
Full member discussions are turned into podcasts and are available on boardoptions.com.
