Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the August 13th premiere of a new webinar, BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Planning and Running Effective Board Meetings, which explains best practices for effective board meetings. The BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 Series is sponsored by BoardBookit.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 10, 2018

More and more privately-held companies are exploring the benefits of effective corporate governance and, consequently, are working towards formalizing board processes. This trend has been driven in part by the ever-increasing pressure that companies face from foreign competitors and increasing government regulation. The demographic wave of the huge number of businesses whose leadership is getting ready to retire and which, therefore must engage in succession planning is another significant factor.

Yet, many private companies delay implementing a more formalistic governance regime or simply do not understand they even need it. The BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 Financial Poise webinar series discusses various aspects of good governance in private companies. Applicable to owners, executives, directors and their respective trusted advisors, this webinar series brings a variety of experiences and perspectives on the most common questions around private company governance.

The third episode of the series, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly: Planning and Running Effective Board Meetings, airs on August 13th at 11:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Kristi Daeda of The Family Business Consulting Group. She is joined by Mark S. Melickian of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger, David Spitulnik of Spitulnik Advisors, and Mark Trembacki of Risk Management Levers, Inc.

All of us have had experiences of meetings that were painful to participate in. Lack of preparation, ineffective facilitation, or inability to move decisions forward can all lead to an ineffective board. With boards charged with a company's most important strategic matters, no company can afford to waste valuable meeting time. In this discussion, we share practices that happen in real boardrooms that help equip directors to participate and lead to energized and productive debate that feeds the company's success.

The BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 webinar series is produced by Financial Poise.™ The series is sponsored by BoardBookit.™

The final episode in the BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 series is "The Effective Director," airing on September 17th at 11:00 AM CST. All episodes of the series premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.
