Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the September 17th premiere of a new webinar, "The Effective Director," which helps directors exceed expectations and make a meaningful contribution to the company's success. The BOARD OF DIRECTORS BOOT CAMP 2018 Series is sponsored by BoardBookit.

CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 14, 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 fourth and final episode of the series, The Effective Director, airs on September 17th at 11:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Kristi Daeda of The Family Business Consulting Group. She is joined by Gary Les of IDN, Inc., Jay Reilly of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, and Sandra Wilson of Wilson Growth Advisors.

While we think of a board as a functioning entity, much of the success of the board relies on the individual behavior of its directors. During this program, we talk about some of the productive and problematic behavior that can show up in the boardroom, and the effect that it can have on board effectiveness. We look at what's expected of directors from ownership and management, and share examples of the ways that a highly effective director can help to meet or exceed those expectations and make a meaningful contribution to the company's success.
