This session will help you understand the most significant COVID-19 impacts for directors, governance professionals and senior management to ensure that your organization is governing effectively and ably at this unprecedented time. Key issues that will be covered include:

  • Financial: How should the board be overseeing the organization’s short-term financial condition including liquidity and solvency risks, dividend programs and planned capital expenditures?  
  • HR: How should the board balance short-term workforce needs with the need to retain talent?  How will 2020 executive compensation be assessed? What is the succession plan if the CEO falls ill?
  • Business Strategy: Are there opportunities to be considered in light of the crisis? How should your organization’s strategy and business model respond to changes in customer and client needs and preferences as a result of the crisis?
