FT-ODX (Outstanding Directors Exchange)

New York |  - 

Overview

FT-ODX puts you in a room full of your boardroom peers where everyone is comfortable speaking candidly about the most pressing governance issues of the day. Our panels are led by winners of the prestigious Outstanding Directors award and other experienced board members, who share professional experiences and insights and create an open forum for dialogue. No one sells, no one lectures, and there are no slide presentations. Instead, every session is fueled by questions from an intimate audience and all discussions are off-the-record. This unique format creates the power of FT-ODX.

Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Reimagining capitalism: Balancing purpose vs. profit on the road to a sustainable future
  • Competing on culture: Combating inertia and making proactive big bets
  • Finding and supporting a transformational CEO
  • Emerging risks on the boardroom agenda
  • Ensuring effective digital oversight at the board level
  • Comparing and contrasting governance practices and experiences around the world
