CORPORATE BOARDROOM WORLD’S LAST “PRIVACY ZONE”-BUT SHOULD IT BE?
(July 3) In the 21st century, we increasingly put our personal lives out there on social media, reality TV and live streaming. It’s become common for public figures to have their most embarrassing moments captured and shared with the world.
Are corporate boardrooms still the safe haven they used to be? Yes says Ralph Ward, publisher of online monthly Boardroom INSIDER and governance speaker, in the July 2017 issue. The world’s boardrooms, he writes, are “a spot that keeps itself as secure as Area 51.”
But is all this secrecy surrounding the boardroom really necessary? Perhaps peeling back the curtain a little on the boardroom may be beneficial in a time of low confidence in business. Ward asks if investors would “be pleased with what they saw if they had more access to what goes on behind closed doors.”
