    Classroom Board Oversight of Disruptive Risks: Cyber, Crypto, and New Business Models


    Directors Oversight of Disruptive Risks (Cyber, Crypto, and Disruptive Economies) All organizations are facing business model disruption, and directors play an important role in understanding the nature, pace, and impacts of disruptive risks, including rapid innovations in technology (e.g., robotics, digitalization), new forms of supply chains (e.g., Amazon), or even fundamental changes in the way business is conducted (e.g., blockchain, crypto currencies). While disruption can add to risks such as cyber security, it also presents organizations with significant opportunity to maintain or add to shareholder value. NACD Florida, Protiviti, and Akerman are pleased to present a high-impact discussion to help directors identify and govern the ways their organizations deal with disruptive risks. Join experts in innovative strategies, public policy, and cyber as they provide perspective on ways directors can help take advantage of opportunities in emerging areas of digitalization, supply chain/blockchain, and cyber risk management and how these fast-paced risks can be managed along the way. Please join us and an impressive panel of experts at the spectacular Pavilion at Steinbrenner Field for this event. A catered reception will follow the program.

    Classroom Board Impact on Culture


    What impact has culture played in the recent headlines about companies such as Uber and Wells Fargo? What is the board's role in shaping culture and how can it have an impact? Does culture have concrete value for an organization? The recently released NACD Blue Ribbon Commission Report Culture as a Corporate Asset focuses on the importance of directors playing a greater role in the discussion of organizational culture. In the corporate context, culture has been described as "the sum of shared assumptions, values, and beliefs that create the unique character of an organization." Join our outstanding panel of corporate leaders to unpack this conversation. Their experience and expertise serving in leadership roles in the C-suite and the boardroom will make this conversation rich with stories and examples of how the board can influence the culture of your organizations.

    Classroom Breakfast Roundtable: Managing Risk in an Age of Social Media


    In today’s transparent, always-on world, control of brand messaging has shifted from organizations into the hands of increasingly connected consumers. A single post about a company can go viral and create untold brand damage in a matter of minutes. Although 70% of directors identified reputational risk as a top concern in a recent survey, less than 10% of those same directors said they were well-versed in social media issues. In order to effectively advise organizations on how to manage brand risk and reputation, boards of directors should understand the threats, tap into chief marketing officer expertise, and help oversee the development of plans to mitigate risk.
