Masterclass and Speaker on High-Performance Boards

Corporate directors, CEOs and investors get plenty of information on corporate governance laws and regulations… but where do they turn for advice on the real-world concerns that turn up inside the boardroom?

Now, Ralph Ward offers training on the global best-practice tools you’ll need to become a world-class director, and shape your board into a powerful, professional fiduciary. You’ll get a solid overview of codes and laws of governance developed by national, regional and global authorities.  Learn the secrets of effective boards, including leadership, structure, membership, organization, legal duties, and building positive boardroom chemistry. Best of all, I chair “virtual board” meetings with your class, as you join to work out solutions to actual governance problems that face real boards of directors.  Enjoy customized information for audiences in Asia, the Middle East, the U.S., Africa and Europe.
