Episode Summary

This session brings to light the value an effective corporate secretary can bring to the board, along with some keys on how that relationship’s foundation and philosophy should be structured within a limited time resource. Each board of directors is unique in its composition, but corporate secretaries must still find a process that will help the board meet its corporate governance duties while making the board and committees as effective as possible.

McGinness also discusses her approach to board members talking directly to investors as part of a shareholder engagement strategy and how one can go about organizing a productive continuing board education plan.
