Board Portals: What’s Next as Boards Go Digital?

Episode Summary

As the rest of the world is experiencing a digital revolution, so too are today’s boardrooms. Over the last few years, more and more boards have ventured into electronic board books and more sophisticated board portals. Who best to update us on board communication trends than Matthew Healy, Vice President and Head of Governance for Nasdaq Corporate Solutions.

In this episode, Healy discusses the prevalence of board portals and the underlying factors that incite technological innovations in today’s boardrooms. As cyber security concerns rise and corporate directors become younger, the pressure is on boards to communicate in a way that’s safer, more efficient, and ultimately more effective.

I am surprised by the number of public companies that do not have anything (i.e., collaborative technology) in place and still rely on these paper-based processes.
— Matt Healy, VP & Head of Governance, Nasdaq Corporate Solutions
