AGENDA
3:30 Registration Opens & Networking
4:00-4:05 Introductory Remarks
4:10-4:50 Panel #1- Anticipating, Avoiding & Abating Risk

How can a board help to foster a risk-focused corporate culture? What is the risk oversight function of the board? What are the most common risk-scenarios boards deal with? What steps should a board take when it becomes aware of such a situation?

4:50-5:05 Q&A
5:05-5:15 Break
5:15-5:55 Panel #2- What’s a Board to Do (and Not Do) in an Existential Crisis

Some risks evolve into full-blown crises that can threaten the very existence of the corporation. What should a board do in these circumstances? What should it not do? To whom is the board’s duty owed when a crisis threatens the solvency of the corporation?

5:55-6:10 Q&A
6:10-8:00 Cocktail Reception
