Disruptive situation across Asia (and the world) coupled with higher expectations from stakeholders is pushing boards to be more future fluent. While boards need to guide their organizations out of the current slowdown, they are also expected to deal with new age challenges around technology, people, business, and sustainability. In this webinar, we’ll explore findings from the BOLD 3.0 study, particularly in context of the Philippines market. Participants will learn about state of board leadership in Philippines, roles board leaders must play to be future fluent, choices leaders will need to make to deal with the current pandemic, and culture boards must promote to make ‘collective leadership’ happen.
