Learn from a Wharton Class:

Corporate Board Governance for Mid-Market Companies

This is a must attend program for anyone who is looking for a board seat, serving on a board, or reporting to a board. Taught by two of Wharton’s renowned faculty, this 1-day certificate program has been specifically designed for mid-market CEOs and will give you specific insight about the new role of directors and how to design effective boards. Participants walk out of this class with tactical information and a plan on how to actively define, pursue, and get on their next board and how to add value once they are there. Based on the book Boards That Lead: When to Take Charge, When to Partner, and When to Stay Out of the Way, this CEO Connection exclusive one-day program provides the latest thinking from knowledgeable boardroom veterans on how directors can make a leadership difference.
