And how can you, as an entrepreneur, get on the executive boardmember track?
We’re diving into it with our amazing speakers: Elfrieke van Galen – Non-executive boardmember Arcadis & Marline Stoffers – 360Careers
Being a board member today is a very different role from being a senior executive and brings with it added complexity and unique responsibilities which are different from other management and operational roles. To successfully carry out a board mandate, directors must have a general overview of a company’s operational activities and corporate governance, including an understanding of its exposure to risk and strategic direction.
Board members continually face new challenges like diversity, sustainability and digital advancements. Dynamic and immersive learning allows you to understand the essential areas of the board – such as, architecture, structure, processes and the job market – thereby progressing into a board position with confidence.
Strategic risk management is a crucial but often overlooked aspect of enterprise risk management (ERM). While ERM has traditionally focused on financial and, more recently, operational risk, the fact is that strategic risk is far more consequential.
